Living in the city can cause you an identity crisis, you quickly realize that you are a very small fish in a very big pond. Everywhere I have gone lately I am astonished by the sheer number of people. There is never a “good” time to go to Walmart, the grocery store, or the bank. Unlike the smaller city I left, where going shopping during the daytime hours (when most people are at work or school) here in the city there are always people out and about. Not only are there always people in the stores, the streets are also packed at all hours of the day. There is constantly traffic, or people walking, and the public transit is utilized 24 hours a day. We live close to the biggest airport, so there are constantly people in the air as well. I have noticed that during the week there is a plane leaving, or arriving, approximately every 5 minutes, and weekends amaze me because one after another, you watch these huge jumbo jets line up to land and you watch a trail of jets as they leave carrying hundreds of passengers all over the world….
Moving here has given me a new perspective of the world, and life in general. You have to make the best out of life for yourself because everyone else has their own lives, worries, and plans. You might be something to someone, or nothing to anyone. It is not about how much you do, but how you do it, and life is about making yourself happy, in both big and small ways.
I have been stuck in a bout of negativity over the last while, but I now realise that it does not matter whether or not you make a mark on the world as long as you share your love, your life, and your passion you will make a mark on someone, and touching one soul is just as great as touching many!!!
