Strange Yet Amazing
Many things in life, big and small, never fail to amaze me, like the stars in the sky and how they shine, the blue whale and what could it be doing right now, considering that it’s really big! the earth and what holds it in place, babies and how they feel their mother’s love, God and of course, love itself. These things are not exactly that strange because they can be explained through science but in my head, I still keep on asking, “How is that made possible?”. Why do some things in this life exist or some parts in the human body, for example, exist when they don’t serve any purpose? Like the appendix. When I clean the house, I always hate dust and I think that the furniture in the house isn’t doing anything at all, why does it become dirty? In our house, I ask, why do we still keep this piece of furniture when we only need this? Most people are ironic. They want to have a clean space to live in yet they are not willing to give up the things that clutter the house just when they actually decide to start cleaning.
I was browsing over some quotes made by famous people. Mahatma Ghandi’s “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony” quote is one of my favorites. We always want to achieve happiness. Many of us are great dreamers. We dream to every detail of what we want to do. But we don’t achieve happiness just by dreaming. I’m not really a fan of rap artists but I would like to quote Whiz Khalifa. “You ain’t gonna stop trying to get where you going until you reach it. Happiness is about dreaming and taking action. It is common for ordinary people to have dreams, but what will matter the most is when we take action. Don’t stop until you reach what you have always been dreaming of. I believe that there is still plenty of time, most especially when you are young.
Sometimes, I wonder what’s it like to be famous. Having a lot of money, getting everything you need with just a call and having everyone’s attention. On the other hand, fame can rob you of peace and privacy.Michael Jackson was very famous. He had the money to change his looks and he made great music. When Michael Jackson died, many people grieved. Do you think MJ died happy? I don’t think so. Whitney Houston also left a legacy with her songs. It has been confirmed that she used cocaine before she died. There have been a lot of famous people who were reported of substance abuse, why? I guess because they have the money and have easy access to illegal drugs. I guess they weren’t contented after all. Why would these people abuse drugs if they are contented with life? We could not blame them I guess. Or, perhaps, we can say that they should have made better choices in life. They should have taken advantage of what they had and used it for good things.
