Sonder and something to wonder
Recently my vocabulary got a little bit richer. Sonder. This is the word i learned and somehow it got to me. I have always loved to be a spectator of things. A silent woman on the bus, an anxious pedestrian, a child playing. So many stories evolve around me, it makes me wanna pay attention , it awakens my imagination.
Sonder it is then. I have been the background stage prop for so many love stories, friendships, achievements. I have been their background. Wow right? Seems romantic though it is not. It is merely a way to say we are all connected to each other. We are all here to contribute in our struggle to make a difference. I do not mind being your background while you go out there trying to make it happen. I even might give you a hand, a smile, help you with your bags. This is who i am. Happy to assist you and make the scenery a little bit more bright. Your friendly neighboor.
Undoubtfully i am not a quitter, but i surrender to you world. I have stopped trying to be the protagonist in this story called life. i just want to attribute something. I have been lied, cheated, manipulated. I have been sad, frustrated and angry. From now on I will be a spectator to your shows and i will cheer for you, i will applaude while on the same time i will write my own little story. It may not be a great story but it will be mine nevertheless.
So next time you are offered unexpected help from someone please be polite, be receiving. Try not to be so closed up in your walls. Try not to be afraid of everyone around you. Try to trust cause it might be me and i will come with the best intentions for you. I know it is hard out there, i know your doubts and your pain. I have felt them deep inside my soul eating me up but please understand if you disappoint a good intentioned heart its irreversible. Benovolent people are endangered species nowadays. Make an effort. Sometimes what people really need is to look around and see smiling faces. Open up and keep the hope alive. I will be there to support you.
