Of course, good or bad, we have no choice but to live on this planet. But given what we know (and have yet to know), what can we do to make our lives “good”?

Considering the fact that none of us knows every single thing about life – the universe, our planet, histories, conspiracy theories, meaning of life & death, ourselves, others, plus SO MANY OTHER THINGS that we don’t fully know of. And I don’t think anyone will ever know ALL of life’s contents no matter how much they try to study/learn about them. (I’ll elaborate about this paragraph in another post!)

Right now there are political issues – some governments and citizens are at a state of unrest, there areΒ armed conflicts happening between different nations/states/groups and it doesn’t help when the bloodshed situations seem to have no end, too.

Racism hasn’t been eliminated yet, education systems aren’t well suited to people’s best interests/learning abilities, and if we look at each individual, the majority of us are not living to our highest potential yet. We keep talking about “change” or painting “a new world” but the progress is far from that ideal position.

But who am I to complain? And what am I to do? I’m simply a resident on Earth who is trying her best to contribute to making those above mentioned words closer to reality – “change” and “a new world.”

Forget our future children’s lives, our own lives are still uncertain. But of course, as I’d like to believe, not all are lost. No matter how bad this world might be, it still has hope. Maybe not soon, maybe it won’t even be perfect, but good is everywhere – whether in the news or not. There are people who strive for greatness in humankind and the world.

With all the increasing number of new things making their appearances such as Pokemon Go, new inventions, newly found research, etc, I reckon we will keep seeing (positive/negative) changes in things and people. But all in all, despite the current happenings and/or distractions, I hope we still aim to achieve the meaningful things in life and be human, be aware/awake and save what we can.
