World is beautiful! Our conclusions from travelling.
We want to share with you this simple story that happened on Dominican Republic and how did we noticed that world is beautiful.
There’s really nothing special about it. We were just travelling with other couples on Boogies trip.
What’s special is what’ve learned from observation.
It was sunny and hot morning. We were the first hotel guests that came for Boogies trip. We got into the truck and waited…
Shortly after us, another couple arrived. Tall, pale and muscular German guy with tiny, swarthy Latino girl with black, curly hairs. They seemed to be in love and fascinated by each other. They had no rings and they looked like they relationship was very recent.
From what they were talking about, we concluded that they met in U.S., they were both immigrants it was their first holiday together.
Right after Latino-German couple, another two people arrived. They were married and absolutely crazy about each other. We could tell that their love is true, deep and unbreakable.
They behaved differently than the first couple. Their love was older, less passionate and more reasonable. It seemed they’ve been together for a very long time and they are still happy with each other.
But the most interesting for us was how they looked like. He was big, muscular and black. And she was skinny, freckled and ginger.
When they were holding hands and cuddling, their skins looked so beautiful! They were like white and black chocolate mixed together.
We were watching them with a smile. It’s so amazing that people who look so differently have so much in common. It’s not very often to see couples like this. Usually people choose partners simmilar to them.
Anyways- they were adorable!
Then the third couple arrived. First we saw a guy. He was muscular with abs on his stomach. He had perfect hair, perfect teeth and handsome face. He could easily be on the cover of some popular magazine.
And then we saw his girlfried. She was short and very, very fat with cellulite on her arms. She was wearing nothing except from the towel wrapped around her body.
She had really nice smile but she wasn’t pretty.
This guy looked at her like if she was the most beautiful woman on the world. They were talking, holding hands and they really looked happy.
And it was then that we realized how mistaken the media are. People believe in some stupid stereotypes about outside, appearance and outlook.
But there is something that is more important than these. It’s what we have inside. What kind of people we are, how we behave and what we do. That’s what connected all these couples. They were fascinated about each other. None of them believed in stereotypes. They were able to saw what’s really important.
World is beautiful and so miscellaneous. People have diffrent skin color, they are tall or short, fat or skinny, they are healthy or disabled, hetero or homosexual, religious or atheist etc.
But, in fact, despite all these differences, we are very similar.
We all want to be happy. We all have something that we care about. We all want to be accepted, loved and respected.
So… why not start now? Let’s treat others as we want to be treated.
Do something good for the world today. Smile to a stranger and tell something nice to your family or friends.
Let’s Heal the world, Make it a better place. For you and for me and the entire human race.
Listen to this beautiful Michael Jackson song and believe in beauty of this world :).
