Some days are good, some days bad and some days just boring (like today). But every day has something new to offer.
It was the usual at work today. Stories to file and pages to make.
On any other day it would’ve been fine, today some how it wasn’t. There was a heavy downpour in the evening . I was still at work, but I could hear people struggling to get back on the roads, after taking shelter until the rain stopped.
As part of my job, I write stories, stories about people, animals and things that are interesting. As part of the features desk, we get to meet a lot of people. A few stories stay with us and many don’t.
But the ones that stay with us have either been sad or extremely happy stories. Today was the former.
I was quite disheartened by how someone treated their mother. It was pretty obvious on my face. So when I was passing by boss’ desk he stopped me and said something I’ll never, ever forget.
Don’t ever let the world disappoint you. The world will try it’s best… but believe that not everyone is bad. Don’t let the world ever disappoint you. Just don’t.
The world has a lot to offer. It’s up to you to do what you want with what it gives.
