Maybe I should start calling these posts ‘BYB’ of the last Sunday past…
(24th BYB Sunday)
To be alive. To be able to work. To be fit and healthy. To have family and friends around. To be of sound mind. To continue to find passion in many things. To have time to smile and laugh everyday.
Is as simple does. And to wake up everyday to a cold shower (by choice). To feel the soft blowing of wind early in the morning catching you shivering in soft delight. Downing that first cup of coffee. Catching up over lunch with a friend. Walking back at the end of the day knowing you have interacted and had an impact no matter how little in the day, in the lives of others.
That education has played a role in your life. In knowing that the many useless things you learned eventually turned out to be pretty darn useful sometimes. To have had the chance of growing from education to employment. That while alive we gather the sum of our experiences and grow from the experience.
That itself is a blessing indeed.
Is it right for someone to make a choice to isolate themselves or become a Hikikomori?
