Ever thought about how would you describe this world, to a child ? A place where you’ve lived for years, to someone who has very little or no idea of the place he or she has been welcomed into?
Crazy, creative or cunning? Picturesque, pretty or polluted? Would you describe this place as a happy one where people live in harmony, or a greedy den where man just runs behind money? Would you tell him that there’s enough for everyone out there- food,water,clothing & shelter or would you warn him about drought,floods & earthquakes happening all over the world? Does this world accept you if you belong to any race or class, do they judge you on the basis of whom you love or is everyone open to whatever you want to pursue in life? Will you describe it as a nature’s paradise or a man-made destruction?
Whatever you describe the world as,to a little one- who is the purest form of life on earth, don’t forget to tell them that the world is not perfect & he or she has the power to change the imperfections. Imperfections in the environment as well as in the minds of people. Each one of us has the capability to bring a good change in the world, however small it may be. And also, to preserve the wonderful aspects of it. To develop & prosper but not forgetting our roots. To dream big,VERY BIG, but WORK towards achieveing it at the same time. To love,to laugh, to enjoy the moment without worrying too much about the past or the future. To preserve this wonderful piece of magic that has been crafted & gifted to us.
Yes, YOU! Plant a tree, install a bin on your street if there’s none, help an old man or an old lady cross the road, give a meal to someone hungry- there are so many ways in which you can make the world a better place. It need not be something big. Small steps on a daily basis make a big difference too. Just because someone else’s life is a hot mess, doesn’t mean you make yours similar to it too. Educate yourself, give back to your parents, spread the good vibes around & I’m sure, the world will give back to you 🙂
