What if Monsters eat People?

T Keep it low and “just try your best.”

Just the feeling of having done your best is really a reason to smile. Maybe those who have tried meditation or studies in this way can understand me much better at this point:

Sometimes we don’t even realize how much we frown.

It’s not a botox embellishment,

it’s a reminder to curl the lips more,

dear reader.

Unfortunately, sometimes the simplest things turn out to be attitudes that are impossible to put into practice without any reason. Happiness is -again- unfortunately not something we expect, but something we extract. Let’s end this with a quote, for now, we can talk about it more another day.

“Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.” Ralph Marston

T “I want everyone to be smiling.”

Moreover, this sweet lady talks about the smile of everything. I want everyone to smile, especially my grandmother, she says when she sees someone.

T “Your heart is something and you should stay where your heart is. Everyone else’s heart is something.”

Not just my heart or my mother’s heart, the heart of the people I love, but everyone’s heart.

T “If I can be nice, I think all of us can be nice, too.”

We’ve always heard it the other way around. Moreover, our inner voices. If he/she is doing it, I’ll do it too. Even the one that doesn’t look close to motivation based speeches,
>Oh! Look at this person with big achievements and no extraordinary talents, I would do it too… Life!<

We can.

How lovely she elaborates staying steady. Fascinating. She melts itself in such a selfless context without any devaluation that makes me remember her age again. S I X.

“If we live in a world where everyone is being mean, everyone is going to be a monster in their future. What if there are just a few people and monsters eat them? Then no one will ever be here. Only the monsters in our place. We need everyone to be a person, everyone!”

We need everyone to be a person, everyone!
