talking to strangers cindy del valle - sunset photo

Going to bed after watching the sunrise feels surreal. Birds singing, empty streets, clear skies. A feeling of warmth, abundance, light. Beginnings are important, but so are endings. Knowing this is how the end started, I rest assured that Monday and the next week will also start on the right foot.

Talking to Strangers & The People Who Make It All Worth It

Appreciate the people in your life that put a smile on your face, that inspire and excite you. My mum and I spent some quality time together. I felt extremely grateful for her and the way she is, the space she occupies in the world and in my own little world, the personality traits I’ve stolen from her (mwahaha), and all the love she has to give and deserves to get.

My best friends and I laughed our asses off. I felt their unconditional love and support like I always do.

A little girl was walking down the street with her family. I told her, “Your hair looks beautiful.” It made her extremely happy.

I told a woman on the street, “Bless you,” when she sneezed. She smiled and told her friends all the cute typical Albanian things about me.

I had a constructive conversation with an old lady in the street. Even though we disagreed, we both ended the conversation with a smile on our face.

Damn, I’ve done a lot of talking to strangers lately, I need to tone it down lol.

I wish people wouldn’t disappoint so often, or do “bad” things, or hurt and lie to others, but I still can’t say I hate people.

I love people! Always will. I just hope to meet more and more people that make me love people (and interactions with them) more, not less.

Fortunately, so far, so good!
