What do you love?
I love the fresh, morning scent of a summer day with the sun greeting me in all its radiance as it slowly rises above the horizon. I love the light of innocence in the eyes of a child who sees everything in the world as new and knows no fear. I love the smell of my mom’s home cooking and hearing her sing along to those classic songs I grew up with. I love seeing how people can overcome even the hardest of challenges life has bestowed upon them; a good success story always puts a smile on my face. I love that moment when you look into someone’s eyes and know that that intense silence you both just shared has clearly been louder than those unspoken words. I love placing my feet in the ocean sand and feeling the tiny speckles run through my toes as the water tide rises and falls. I love hearing those stories from my grandparents that make me appreciate what little it is I have. I love chasing pigs and chickens in the rural town my parents grew up in back in Mexico. I love hearing the sound of the drums and feeling the rhythm of this unbound language move my soul. I love seeing people smile and laugh in joy shining like the stars they are. I love the feeling I get when I give back to my community and see people pay me with that unforgettable expression of gratitude. I love the idea of freedom and that the world can now, truly achieve it if we all learn to work together towards a common goal: demanding truth, justice, and our unalienable human rights. I love the feeling when I break the law; example- speeding. Some rules are just meant to be broken, don't you think? I love those little stupid things you only do with your friends and will forever be remembered amongst one another as an inside joke. I love to dream; it’s just so entertaining to let your mind drift into the unlimited abyss of the wondrous mind. I love a challenge. I love the after feeling of when I face my fears and prove to myself that I could achieve anything I set my mind to if I just believe. I love the moles and birthmarks that are uniquely mapped across my body. My imperfect nose, my one, dimpled cheek, my scars- I’ve learned to appreciate and love those little imperfections and quirks I see within myself. I love running on a summer night and feeling those extra carbohydrates liquefy down my body as the moon, fully lit, smiles down on me. I love that awkward silence one experiences in an elevator full of people; it’s kind of funny. There’s no denying it; I love to collect those memories and appreciate those little things in life that have no price. The more I live, the more I realize, “What is there not to love?” I love this world, but most importantly… I love you. Why? Cause you contribute to it just as much as I do. We’re all endlessly connected to one another in this boundless web of life, and I appreciate you as the wonderful being that you are. Thank you for everything that you do. Remember dream big, and LIVE!! Now my question to you is… what do you love?
I say take life by the horns and run with it like Precious taking chicken!! Live your life and smile! =)
