Day 1, 7/28/16 – What do you offer the world?
This question is a tough one to answer, there are days I feel like I have nothing to offer and other days where I swear people should be blessed with my presence haha. I thought long and hard about this and I think these are the traits I offer:
I am kind, and I always try to see the best in people even after they have let me down. I try not to let the past make me bitter although if I am being honest sometimes I fail. It’s hard not to let the past and people who have done you wrong change your view on the world. I try to give people the kindness and sympathy I would want someone to give me. Granted there are days when I am less than kind and probably give bitch face to people when they don’t deserve it.
I am generous, I would give everything I had for someone else…especially those I love.
I am loyal, some times to a fault. I would fight until my last breath for those who I consider friends. But perhaps that may not always be a good thing. Sometimes I expect others to go to the ends of the earth for me simply because I would do that for them.
I like to think at the end of the day I have a kind heart and maybe that’s what I offer in this world. A warm smile for someone who needs it, a hug for a friend when life is shitty, just someone who cares about other people. I want to be that friend you call at 4 am because you know I’ll be there, without any hesitation. I mean at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what you own, what kind of car you drive…what matters is being a better person than you were the day before, being able to look at your flaws and your short comings and working on being better.
All I know is I want to leave an impact even if it is only on a few people in this world. I want people to remember how I made them feel, maybe realize I made a difference in their life no matter how small. That’s what I hope to offer in this world…
