I am drawn and easily moved by stories of those who had nothing, only to bloom and attain their definition of everything. Everything intangible, like happiness, serenity, satisfaction, comfort, and well deserved recognition for work where blood, sweat, and tears were shed to put together. Human sadness that drives one to fight and break free from their cages is a sort of world wonder to me. I often find myself feeling happy for them and crushed when an obstacle comes their way.
I don’t acknowledge the rags-to-pretentious-riches stories, where the hunger for money turns into a tyrannical abuse of power where personalities shift and backgrounds of the past are completely erased. I value humility. I value potential and those who dream of attaining dreams.
