A Look At Life

October 14, 2010
By Anonymous

I find it highly incredible how you can look at something and marvel at it. Even the slightest little thing. No matter what it is, something is always there that lets you mind go and marvel-if you let it. Often times we look at the world, and don’t see anything but a place filled with people, pollution, and noise. The world is made up of so much more than that. A beautiful sunset can be one of the most amazizng things to marvel at. Being a photographer, I know that you can’t always have a camera to make the memory last forever, but your brain can do that for you. Just open up your mind and your soul to the wonderful world around you. Stop and smell the roses, even just for a second. Don’t just pass through life not having a clue in the world about the world. Because believe it or not, life doesn’t last forever. In fact, it doesn’t last for long at all. You blink, and it’s gone. It’s that quick. For the most part, despite all the drama, pollution, people, etc., life is truly a wonderful thing. Be happy, and you’ll realize that. Take a step back and you’ll see, truly what a wonder the world can be.

This is just something I was thinking about so I wrote it. I know it's short, but some of the greatest things are the shortest.
