A message from the World
Me, just sitting there in a café. A paper cup full of freshly made cappuccino. The gentle autumn breeze blows through the open door, taking the sound of passing cars with it. My mind is full of thoughts, thoughts lined up like tiny birds on the electrical wire. Suddenly all of them fly away, leaving one slightly electrocuted birdy thought behind – ‘the writer writes’.
Once I told my mom, that this world is weird.
“It’s not the world, it’s you who’s weird.” (She smiled at me.)
A few years later I caught myself thinking that this world is a mysterious place. And soon after said my mother’s words to me - “It’s not the world, it’s you who is mysterious”.
And now, this very moment I looked at what I wrote above and saw that bunch of little birdies flying back on the electric wire. All of them carrying tiny pieces of paper like from a Chinese fortune cookie. But I still couldn’t read what was that message from the world they brought to me.
What if I am weird? Mysterious as well?
Or what if I will think, this world is beautiful?! Am I Bellezza (it. Beauty) then? (It was the thought that truly made me smile.)
Suddenly the sky became white of slowly falling little pieces of paper, the tiny messages became more clear. I started catching every word with my eyes – colorful, modest, talented, strong, good, capable to change, unbreakable, full of stories, adventures, and love, inspiring, creative, positive, poooowerfulll, haaaappyyyy!
I am colorful, modest, talented, strong, good, capable to change, unbreakable, full of stories, adventures, and love, inspiring, creative, positive, poooowerfulll, haaaappyyyy!
My world is magical, indeed! (I screamed in my head and almost climbed up on a table nearby.)
Yes, I am weird! And yes, I’m mysterious as well! And I do have a big heart.
At that moment I decided to blow away all doubts and negatives. Everything bad that wanted to stay in my head. OFF!
We are the tiny and the big miracles of this world. We should believe in ourselves and our capabilities. We should turn thoughts into actions and move the mountains! We should choose to be Creators (Within a message from the World!), but not the victims.
What kind of world is yours?
