When I was little we read this book over and over called Miss Rumphius. It taught you to travel the world and live by the sea. That’s pretty neat sure but the lesson that stuck out was to do something to make the world a better place. The lady in the book did that by planting seeds which I guess is okay. Over all it’s a pretty great book but there are much better ways to make the world a better place.
We get to meet a lot of people in our line of work and most of them are pretty great. Some of them are just awsome though! Actually if it wasn’t for my job I don’t think I’m the sort of person to go out and meet new people. So that’s probably a good thing. I really do mean that most people are great but some take it to a whole other level. They have a way of putting you at ease, they recognise that you’re helping them with something they can’t do on their own and you can just tell they are incredibly kind and authentic. They stand out sometimes in other ways too. Thier jobs are those hard ones that save people’s lives sometimes, they appriciate your work and recommend you to others or they are just so interesting to talk to. This doesn’t just have to apply to people you work with but wherever you find them you take notice. Personally I think this is one of the greatest ways to make the world a better place.
It’s probably foolish to think that everyone I meet will think that way about me, in fact I know it’s impossible. But I would like to strive as much as possible to be that type of person as much as I possibly can. I also think we’ve all met the type of person that is the exact opposite of that. I know I have! Think about how that sort of person makes you feel and subtracts so much from the world. This weekend take some time to think about both of those people and how you exist in the world. Is it making the world a better place?
