We are a blessed and special species that is alive right now right here. We can walk to the grocery store and buy fruits from another state, flowers from another continent and technology developed in another country. We live in times where publishing a book is so easy and getting reading material easier, a world where beds are soft and traveling easy. The world was so different when few people knew more than their mother tongue, only scholars could read, a world before we could talk, walk, before you and I were born.
Before you were human, you were a sperm, living happily playing with fellow sperms, one lucky day you raced and won and met an egg and nine months later, voila, you were born. So many people had to meet, make love and survive for you to be alive right now, for you to exist.
We are lucky to have a life where we can choose to love and believe in magic, where we can grow our own food and build marvelous structures, where we can style ourselves and our homes, where we can read books and magazines, read horoscopes and throw parties, watch horror flicks and attend concerts. We have buffets and radio, weddings and roller coasters, boats and movies, cakes and pools, Nutella and nail paints.
We live in a universe which has stars that are billions of years old, and we only get a 100 years to live. Every single person you know might not be alive in 2118, your family, friends, colleagues, your watchman, mailman, teachers, the politicians and actors that you know now will all have been replaced by a new generation.
We get to enjoy life in a fleeting moment. You are at your youngest right this second. We should be grateful to be alive right now, so think of your ancestors and marvel at the world, rejoice in life and go on adventures. Find joy in the simple things, be an optimist, smile when you walk and dance when you want.
Live a Life of wild thoughts, crazy dreams, and unlimited laughter.
