"I fall in love regularly with each person whom passes me in the streets, or who sits beside me on the bus.
Not in the romantic way—no we hardly speak a word to each other.
But I sit, quietly observing all of their body language and all of their expressions. Their smiles, and gestures; the way they lift their coffee, or smile as they read that new text message, or count the change in their hands.
I watch vigilantly, tracking the manners and movements, and appreciating all that these people are. I spend some time thinking about their families and lives, and the life they lead. I consider what they might do for work or if they went to school and what for. When they woke up that morning and how they did their hair.
I study the details of these people—that may otherwise go unnoticed.
Researching each of them, noticing our similarities and rejoicing in the beauty of human nature."
I always love to do people watching. I love seeing people walking by with little smiles on their face because; something small happened that made them happy. Maybe they got a cute text, maybe they got money or maybe they killed a man. Haha, you will never know. Sometimes I try imagine what they are thinking, where they are going, and I wonder what stories they`d tell me if I asked them. If I said "tell me what you carry around in your heart?""
Hmmm. It`s just the art of paying attention to the little things. Which I always do, most of the time. Shhh.
Before I pen off, here are five positive quotes which I discovered yesterday. It's about how to care less about what others think [especially the negative nation].
- Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde
- You are not what others think you are. You are what God knows you are. - Shannon L. Alder.
- Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner. - Lao Tzu
- Your self worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are. - Beyonce
- My dear, I don't give a damn. - Margaret Mitchel
LOL. I really like the fifth one!
You know, there are things we should pay attention. There are things we should ignore. If you learn both of it, you`ll be at peace.
'My aim is to put on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.' - Ernest Hemingway.
