Makes Me Think

So I found this website that shares simple stories from real people that make you think, I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

Today, I interviewed a woman who is terminally ill. “So,” I tried to delicately ask, “What is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?” “Well,” she responded, “What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?” MMT

Today, while I was driving my grandfather to his doctor’s appointment, I complained about hitting 2 red lights in a row. My grandfather chuckled and said, “You always complain about the red lights, but you never celebrate the green ones.” MMT

Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try! You don’t have to be a professional to build a successful product. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic.” MMT

Today, when I told my mother how much I miss him, she looked across the room at a photo of my late father sitting on the coffee table, smiled and said, “We have to accept the fact that some people are going to stay in our hearts, even if they don’t stay in our lives.” MMT

If you have a story like this please share with me even if it was years ago. If you want to read more of these visit the website: http://makesmethink.com/
