This post is a part of Five Minute Friday, a writing flash mob that happens every week when writers are prompted by a single word to write for 5 minutes without any major editing. Just raw thoughts and emotions. You can find out more and/or join the party here.
Do you ever think about all the millions and billions of people walking this Earth who you will never meet?
I have always been a people watcher, but this is different from that. Sometimes lately, when I’m out, when I’m sitting in a Starbucks watching people walk in and out, or walking down the grocery store isle past them, or even passing them on the road, I am struck by the sheer volume of people in this world who I will never know. I wonder about their lives, about their families. Do they know God? Are they happy? What does a day in their world look like? If we met would we be friends?
Do you ever wonder about these things? Or is it just me?
And sometimes I think, one decision made differently, 15 years back, and how would my life look different? Who would I have met along the way, who I will never meet now on this life path that I’m on?
Just some things to ponder… 🙂
