Living and learning

There’s so much to learn from life,

And I don’t just mean life as a whole or in its entirety,

But every little moment in which you breathe and exist.

There’s so much to learn from a single moment

[in addition to the collection of moments that make memories you cherish for life]

Whether you’re learning for the first time, doing what you’re best at, or just sitting back and watching someone.

There’s so much to learn from a single person,

[in addition to the tons of people you come across at different stages of life]

Through a smile, a look, or even simple words that hit you hard during a conversation.

If you’re alert enough,

You learn so much about life from a single moment spent with a single person,

Things that you only learn on your own after trying and failing and falling.

Everyone you encounter has something to teach you,

No matter if he/she is an integral part of your life or a mere passer-by.

You don’t necessarily have to experience life-changing lessons,

But there’s an inexplicable feeling you get when you passively observe things around you.

So when you LIVE through a moment,

Don’t hesitate to LEARN from every moment.

Never underestimate the power of a single moment

And the impact it can have to last for a lifetime.
