What you said about the connections and bonds being more important is so true. I mean think about it, when someone dies, all that’s left are the effects of the connections and bonds that person made in the world. That’s all that lives on when we’re gone.

Lately I’ve found myself being genuinely more open to connecting with others, strangers or not. I take just a little more time to appreciate their presence and make a conscious effort to acknowledge them. And like you said, doing that automatically compels us to do something good every day. When we feel more connected to everything around us, we’re not being selfish and only thinking about what we can get from the world.
Thank you for the comment and always thoughtful words, Murlu! 🙂
