Do you ever realize that you’re not the only person on Earth?
That’s a dumb question; of course you do. You interact with other people every day, most likely live with other people, and talk to your friends often. But do you ever think about if you were the other people you see? Do you ever wonder how their life differs from yours? For me, that always happens when I’m driving on the highway.
I look out the window and into the cars next to me. I can always see the occupants in the front seats, and it gives me a strange feeling. We only see the world through our eyes, but when I look at the people in the other cars and realize that their heading somewhere for a reason I’ll never know. I’ll never see them again in my life, I’ll never know their name, and I’ll never talk to them. We might be on the same road now, but we’ll end up going different directions. It makes me think; What is life like through their eyes?
What is the driver’s story? Are they happy? Is the person sitting next to them a husband? Sister? Friend? Who are they talking to on their cell phone? Where are they going? I’ll never know. It puts a different perspective on my life.
Just something short to think about for the day…We’re not alone. Everyone’s on a journey of their own.
