A World Worth Living
I was driving home from work after a mentally exhausting day. No, week. But, that doesn't make it a bad week. Not at all. Because I get to do things that I love and sometimes the things we love exhaust us.
A million thoughts were running through my head as I pulled up to a stop sign near home. Right then and there, I felt like I reached a point where I could no longer find the strength to keep that gas pedal going.
I looked to my left and saw this. I have been so busy that I haven't been able to see the sunset in days.
I rolled down the window and turned the vehicle off. The crisp, cool air hit my face.
I sat there at that stop sign for five minutes. In silence.
There's a lot of sad things going on in our world right now. Things out of our control. Things we may not understand right now. Things we may never understand.
We are all at war, fighting a battle.
When you look to your left, what do you see? What are you fighting for?
This is not just another picture of a sunset in my neighborhood.
This is my world.
The reason I keep pressing the gas pedal.
My world is worth fighting for.
If not, it's time to change your world.
