WARNING: this video may make you tear up. I definitely did, but I’m posting it because I think it has such an important message. If you don’t take a second to see what’s right in front of you, you’re missing a world of opportunity. Next time you have the opportunity, don’t miss the chance to connect. Show someone they’re not alone.
At one of the saddest points in my life I was sitting on a beach watching the sunset and felt completely lost and alone. I must have looked it. A complete stranger, teenage surfer boy with a gaggle of friends said to me “look where you are, you’ve got to smile.” I smiled and he said, “there you go I knew it’d be a pretty one.” He walked off with his friends, but my whole night shifted. I didn’t feel invisible anymore and I managed to enjoy the rest of the sunset.
Without further ado, here’s Moby’s “In This World.”
Look out for the small signs, from the people right in front of you, and respond.
