Feb 3 - Love Month

5:57 PM

On the 3rd day of Love Month, I've been thinking lots about loving strangers.

I think we underestimate the love that we have, or should have, for everyone around us. We are all connected, and at the end of the day we are all on the same team. Trying to get through, be happy. And when I think about it in a broader, religious sense, we're all brothers and sisters. All trying to figure out how to be the best we can be.

Thinking about this really makes me think about our time in Japan. It's absolutely incredibly that there is an entire country where EVERYONE is thinking about how to be considerate to others. From big to small things. Everyone just standing on an escalator stands to one side, so people who want to walk up can go on the other side. There is no trash anywhere, because it would be rude to drop it. People are so willing to move out of the way, give directions, stop and help you. There's little crime, and even in natural disasters they are SO bent on helping other people around them, instead of focusing on themselves. It's incredible.

I want to be more like that. I want to have the respect and love for those around me that I don't know, to make their life easier. If everyone tried to do this a little bit more, we'd all be happier in the long run.
