“Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, long-lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.”
Another great quote that I thought was worth sharing. We often don’t take the time to appreciate the presence of others around us. Whether its someone you actually know or not, you should always make the effort to show them just how much you do.
To the two very kind gentlemen that took the time to appreciate my presence yesterday, I thank you. When one feels their absolute worst (and looks it, too), it’s an incredible feeling to have your presence noticed, be wished Happy Valentines Day, and have the kind of conversation with one you feel as if you’ve known your whole life.
One of those gentlemen and I discussed for a lengthy amount of time how many don’t take the time to appreciate things or anything for that fact, really. What started the conversation in the first place? We were both taking photos of the same thing; swans. I went on to say how unique and beautiful they are and how I’ll just stand there, clicking away, not having a care about how many pictures I have taken, just happy that I was able to photograph that particular moment. He related, as well. He also went on saying how he love’s taking photos of friends and loved ones unexpectedly and said that is what capturing the moment is all about. I happily related, as well. I do hope our paths meet again. If not, then be it.
I’ll conclude with, you never know who will walk into your life for a brief chat–or end up being apart of it.
See with your heart and you’ll see things you’ve never taken the time to appreciate before.
Healing thoughts and prayers to all-
