When I was young I found old people fascinating.
They don’t know how to update their status, or tweet, or even use capslock on the computer, but they know more than we will ever know.
They have seen the world before us, lived through war, survived famine, and in today’s world of texting your emotions, and “beware of the neighbour”, I envy their sense of community.
Rich people, can become ruled by that title, and if you count the number of rich people you know on your fingers, then put the finger down if they are unhappy, you can usually end up with a fist.
Poor people, get lost in our consumer society, or perhaps they lose the will to care.
I once gave a sandwich, (a good one!), to a homeless man on the street, and he threw it at me and swore in Russian.
Yes, I felt pity for him, but I meant nothing by it, and ended up feeling far worse, and minus one sandwich.
Some people can dream, and laugh and smile, no matter how bad things get, and I envy those people, as I am a little bit of a stresser ;).
I have learnt however, to take in the good people, and block out the bad.
In a society who cares far too much about what other people think, it’s up to you to decide what you take to heart and what you don’t.
For sure ,people are funny creatures….
They put each other down, abuse each other, and sometimes forget that we are all in it together.
Perhaps that is why so many people seek animal companionship, cause an animal will never judge or humiliate you.
They won’t comment on what you’re wearing or how deathly awful your hair looks, or your voice sounds.
They seek your approval and nothing more, and will do anything to get it.
If only people were as simple!
Instead of asking yourself what type of person you are…ask yourself what type of person you want to be?
A lot can change in the space of a month, a year…..four months 😉
YOU CAN….be a dreamer
and if you can’t be, don’t tell the dreamers they can’t either!
