Two years ago, I was in a fragile state of mind. I used to tell myself everyday, “If I were to die today, no one would even notice. My commander would just get a replacement and go on with his life.” That ideation may or may not have been true, but ONE person changed that for me. An Air Force Colonel who barely ever spoke to me said hi to me one day as I was leaving the building I worked at. He asked, “Mika, did you win today?” He caught me off guard because he normally would just say hi and keep walking. But that day, he asked me that question and it made me think... “I am alive today. I have air in my lungs. I have a home to go to. I have people who love me. I’m not without bread.” My perspective changed. ⏭⏭⏭ Fast forward to today... I still have tendencies towards being despondent. However, I have so much joy when I talk to people especially when I ask them, “Did you win today?” Sometimes people light up with a gigantic smile and thank me for asking them... sometimes I come across people who are not as excited about life as others are. But regardless of who I come across, I use this question to hopefully bless them or pray for them silently if they happen to be having a not-so-awesome day because I know how it feels to feel like everyday is the end of my days and I was just struggling to hold on. 💚💚💚So no matter what tool you’d like to use today, try and make someone’s day a little bit easier (even if your day may not be going as lovely as you’d like it to be). It might just change his or her life.
