Taylor. 18. I am shaped by the causes I believe so deeply in, the people I surround myself with, and my wholehearted approach to life. At the end of the day i just want to know i'm doing something to make this world a better place.
"To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better;
...To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
- Neale Donald Walsch (via allaboutlifeloveandsoul)
There’s no way to explain your heart breaking and what’s even scarier is that there’s no way of telling it to stop.
The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
