People Can Not Be Replaced.

Things can be replaced, but people can not be. This is something I am reminded of every day. Every day, I can see what life would have been like if something had been different. We are all connected and if you look closely it is easy to see. Many people look at other people as objects, they make judgments about them without ever knowing who they really are. People are very complex and each person has something about them that touches another person's life. Sometimes these things are good and other times they are bad. But, those connections shape each of us. Let me give you an example of something life saving a pretty big.

I want to use open-heart surgery as an example for this one. You can clearly see how this would impact a person's life. This idea was brought on by many people and it has saved many lives. Babies born with heart conditions have a second chance to live because of this idea. Without it, millions of lives would not have existed including people that you have probably encountered in your life. Imagine if this idea never came to be. The people who made this happen are from all different places, they lived different lives, and they had people come into their lives that made it possible for them to be on the path that they were on. For this option to become available every single person in those people's lives from the time they were born, made an impact. If just one event that shaped their future did not happen, that person would not have been involved in this huge medical advancement and it never would have prospered. Use your imagination to see how these connections worked. Maybe one person grew up with support from people who put them on the path, maybe one person grew up with people telling them they were worthless and that put them on the path, maybe one person watched a family member only live a few hours and that event put them on the path, maybe someone was on the path because of something they saw happen to a stranger, there are so many scenarios that started people on this path it is overwhelming to try to imagine them all. But you do know, that events put them where they needed to be. As a result, millions of people have lived because of all of those people and events. These people and all the people who put them on this path, have a huge "thank you" from me. If not for them, my kids would not have gotten a second chance at life and every moment that they have had would have been erased. I am sure other people feel the same way about these huge events that have shaped our world. Pretty big right?

When you are interacting with people, you are making a difference in their lives. You may feel like a simple blog post makes very little difference, but what if it does? What if something you say impacts a person so much that it puts them on the path they need to be on to do something that they wouldn't have thought of without what you said? If you did not say what you did, would it have changed the course of another person's life? People absolutely can not be replaced like money can be or like a broken chair can be. People are not objects, they should not be judged by how they look, they can not be manufactured in a warehouse, and it is impossible for any person to not make some kind of difference in someone's life. Each person on this planet is equally important in someone's life. When you think about the big life saving advancements that we have available, that is very easy to see.

It is not just the positive experiences that shape us and our futures. It is also the negative ones. We are given two choices in life: choose to be happy or choose to be miserable. There are many people who have had horrible tragedies in their lives and they make the choice to be happy and use that negative experience to help others.

As you go forward in your life, try not to take yourself or other people for granted. You may not like everyone who you come into contact with and you may not like every interaction you have, but there is always something to learn. Good or bad or really bad, there is always a learning experience there somewhere. If you are on the verge of quitting something that could help just one person who is out there somewhere, do not quit. They will find you. But, if you quit, they may never get the help they needed that they could only get from you. Keep moving forward. You do make a difference. It may not seem like and when it feels that way, think about those big things like what would have happened if the people who created open-heart surgery had made different choices.

Something deep to leave you with this week. I will do something funny in a different post. ;)

I hope you all have a great week and wish you the best on your journey! :D

A very, very thought provoking blog Angela.

Thank you. I would start up one of our fun conversations, but I am really tired today. I don't think I would keep up very well between dozing off. Even the cat is tired and looks all comfy and cozy sleeping. Come to think of it...he is making me more tired looking at how comfy he is. lmao!

Have a great day today, Mike! :D

Same here Angela…Monday’s and me don’t get along too well. I’m tired as well.

Rest up! I’m sure we’ll find something to joust about later this week. Lol

-Mike


Same..wait, today is Monday? Oh, that explains everything! Sounds like a plan, take time to rest today, too. ;)

I totally believe that blog posts, among many other things, make a big difference for many, Angela!

Some more excellent thoughts here, my friend!

Jeff

So true, Jeff! Things that can seem small, matter a lot to someone. :)

I am a bit tired today, so I think I might take a break for the day. ha ha! I hope you are having a great day! :D

You are so right about that, Angela, and sometimes a break is all that we need to get back on track!
