Smile. Ignite a fire in your soul and set it free. In that uninhibited freedom you'll find your greatness.

The smile on this girl lights me up every time.

"This is the real secret of life – to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play." ~ Alan Watts

If you were able to read her mind, could you handle the burden of listening to her fears, her thoughts, empathize with her situation?
I saw this same girl with her weathered school uniform and her little sister wrapped perfectly on her back, taking on the role of mother at such a young age. What does her tomorrow look like? Does she get to pursue her dreams? Fall in love? Free her daily from their massive burdens?

Maybe we should all be able to read minds so that we could connect a bit more and feel what it is to be human... emotional, vulnerable, connected.

Don't judge a story by the chapter you walk in on.

Found her happy place. Sunshine and smiles. Just love it.

Serve others by finding joy in the ordinary

"Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy.
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it."
~ Charlotte Eriksson

Find happiness inside. This IG dopamine hit is only temporary.

Follow along the path and you'll find the one you've been searching for.

Wandering of the mind is good for the soul.
