Sometimes in life someone comes into your life at the most unexpected time and place and they make things so clear to you. They know your soul they know what you need even though you just met them. What makes me smile even more is that people I have never met have become more interesting to me and more real than anyone else I’ve met in person. It’s like the universe has a way of bringing the like-minded people, you need, to you one way or another. Now, I know there are some that are skeptical and are negative about meeting people online, etc. and I admit that I was one of the pessimists for a very long time. However, over the last year and into this new year, I have met people who have been more sincere and honest and that is something I have not had in a long time. I can spend time with my current friends and family, can spend hours talking, laughing, but these same people, I’ve observed their actions and what they say, they are not genuine. I feel sad for these people because it must be so hard to live a lie for 24 hours a day.
I’ve had people laugh and say most people online are just saying things you want to hear, however doesn’t the same thing go for people in real life? There are lots of people who are not authentic and will tell you what you want to hear then turn around and say the most awful things as soon as you turn your back. My logic says, the people I’ve met online don’t have a reason to put up fronts, they are genuine because that is all they have. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some wonderful people who I talk to and share my life as they share theirs with me. I don’t believe there is much of a difference between meeting someone on the street and meeting someone from behind the keyboard and a screen.
As I’m getting ready, mentally and emotionally, for my travels I find more and more opportunities and positivity towards me. Encouragement to follow my dreams and enjoy my passions. For those that are reading this, I welcome you into my world and I appreciate the time you took to read my writing and my creations. Although I have not met you all I cannot help but feel we are all connected in some way. I know that this is a kind and beautiful world, you just have to be open to it in any form it comes to you.
Much love to you all and may you all have an uplifting day!
