Every human being has a story. And, when you look at interaction with each other as some sort of game, like if you are trying to figure out each other’s stories before one another, interaction becomes fun, and exciting. People are truly incredible. And they wouldn’t be, if they hadn’t come from all walks of life, philosophy, religion, perspective, and so much more. The differences are what make us, us. They make us special and unique for who we really are.
Even if you think you had a boring life, someone else might think your life is heaven on earth, or even totally exciting. You never know. That’s why perspective is so important, because it is the lens through which we see objects, events, and analyze situations, conversations, and initiations. Human beings have a powerful tool in their disposal: their mind. The human mind is capable of so many great things, and I know you hear that sentence all the time, but just take 5 minutes more out of your day, right now. Just take 5 minutes, and think. Just think about thinking, and all its glory. You will slowly begin to realize that there are an infinite amount of places your mind can take you to.
Stories are experiences. What makes a story interesting? Maybe the ending, or beginning, or middle? None of these actually; What makes a story interesting is how it resides within a person’s mind. For example, a tree can have different meaning for me and a kid from Indonesia. Why? Because of our experiences. Let’s say that the kid from Indonesia’s name is Issac. Issac grew up worshiping trees, day in and day out. And I did not. Those are the reasons for both of our opinions on this subject. When Issac sees a tree he runs towards it and gets extremely content, while I stand still because the tree has little meaning for me. This logic shows that perspective is but a lens through which you see things.
In summation, stories are everywhere. And there will always be stories, as long as there are still humans. We live and breathe everyday, be happy for that, but also appreciate what this allows us to do: Breathing allows us to go grocery shopping, have sex, and be creepy when we want to be. Make it your priority to take care of your breath. And what I mean by this, is to consciously breathe deeply in and out, several times a day. That’s it. Wait until you see the difference.
