Lisbon is located near the sea and one day we went to the beach. The Atlantic Ocean can be very rough. It’s was nice to feel the freedom of the wind and the wild Ocean. When we came home Sharon wanted to bring the food that was left over to a homeless person that she saw earlier. I was a bit tired and not really in the mood, but when we found the man on the street and gave him the food, I felt already better. Sharon is an example that we can chance the world if we really want it.
There’s so much food that we throw away every day, while other people don’t have the luxury of a decent meal. Or worse, don’t have food at all. Like the people who suffer from famine, and are dying while we in the West have food enough. I think it is our obligation to share what we have with others who have less. In the end we are all one.
I also gained the insight that when you really want something, you have to do it immediately. One of the last days in Lisbon we wanted to visit the Christ statue, but we were postponing it all the time. In the end there was no time left to see the statue. Therefore, if you want something very bad, don’t let anything stop you, but do it immediately.
