There is a blog called Marc and Angel Hack Life. They have a post that caught my attention called “101 short stories that will leave you smiling, crying and thinking.”
This post came from their sister site “Make Me Think” (MMT) where people post these amazing short true segments that will stop you in your tracks.
I thought I would just share a few with you today to peak your interest in taking a look at their site and realize how awesome life is!
1. Today, my grandpa died. As I was crying and telling my grandma how sorry I was, she said, “Let’s stop being so sad and instead celebrate the 80 wonderful years he was alive… 60 of which he spent with me.” MMT
2. Today, I stopped to chat with the office janitor like I do every Monday morning on my way into work. And at the end of our conversation he grinned and said, “You know, you’re the only one who ever stops to talk to me around here, and you’re the President and CEO.” MMT
3. Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.” MMT
4. Today, I interviewed a woman who is terminally ill. “So,” I tried to delicately ask, “What is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?” “Well,” she responded, “What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?” MMT
There is so much for us to ponder and think about that can change our perspective on life, such as these stories.
Have a Wonderful Awesome Friday!
