You never know what is going on in the next room, the next house or the next person’s mind. When we make plans we expect them to go as planned. It’s more like we hope they go as planned as they don’t always do that. There can be a sudden occurrence that changes everything, completely throwing you off guard. As much as we don’t want to live in what ifs, it seems that we always will be.
1. Be Alert_
Keep on the lookout and be mindful of your surroundings. Like I said, you don’t know what other people are thinking. Whether they are behind the wheel, in the mall, in the store… basically anywhere!
2. Don’t Judge_
You may have that sixth sense and think you know someone’s dodgy. Don’t just assume because that sweet old lady may be able to bounce you around like a basketball. I know bad example but you get what I’m saying. People are being judged lately because of their appearance when the threat could be right in your face. It doesn’t mean you stop being cautious.
Support one another in times of trouble. Be there through it all whether it’s something major or when someone thinks it’s minor. All of our eyes need to be open.
4. Speak Out_
If you see anything! Make sure you are in a safe and good place to say something! Everything we see and hear can be important. Just don’t be nosey but even that can sometimes help. I mean no harm done when it helps right? 😀
“I know that it’s a wonderful world but I can’t feel it right now.”
5. A hero_
Spiderman, Captain America, Iron Man and a dozen other superheroes are awesome. Thinking you can be one of them can be dangerous, although there are real-life heroes that go above and beyond when they don’t need to. If you are one of those people that run towards danger. Do your thing but still be careful! Heroes are inspiring and they come in different shapes and sizes. I will always repeat them. Remember if you’ve done all that you could don’t let that bring you down.
You ever watch a horror movie and find yourself screaming at the TV wondering why they won’t run or move. “If that was me I would have…” YOU WOULDN’T or maybe you would, BUT for most people when that fear kicks in your mind races, you freeze, you go into shock! Don’t feel bad. It happens to the best of us even those that may be trained to overcome fears and act in difficult situations. Just try and move.
You may hear “You’re still young you have so much life left.” or “You should go and live your life.” These things we are trying to do but lately they’ve been cut short for too many reasons that can have things put in place to prevent them. I’m not going to get into it. The point is too finds things in your life that keep you laughing and smiling. This world is wonderful, the sites, the culture and so much more. I want to be remembered smiling.
Feel the loses, let that be your fuel. There has been a lot of tragedy but with those tragedies, there has been unity. Change for the better is coming. It has been proven to work over the years as there are many people capable of doing things they wouldn’t have 40 years ago. It takes time but united we can make a difference.
