Walls of Castel Sant’Angelo

 In Travelscapes

This frame was taken from inside Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, one of my most favorite cities in the world. Castel Sant’Angelo, also known as the Mausoleum of Hadrian, went through many transitions from a mausoleum to a fortress and castle, and now a museum. It was once the tallest building in Rome. My favorite spot here is actually the bridge called Ponte Sant’Angelo which leads to the entrance of Castel Sant’Angelo.

Recently a thought came to my mind. I was wondering about how when we were young, we were always talking about ambitions, about wanting to change the world. As we grow older, we realized that the majority of us can’t even change ourselves, much less change the world.

All is not lost though.

What if to keep things simple, all you need is just to move one person in your life? Is there such a person whose life have changed just because you exist?

As we age, priority changes, things that used to matter no longer mean much today. The only thing that remains the same is that we hope our lives have some meaning to it. The greatest meaning might be to love and inspire someone so much that their lives changes for the better; something that only you can give because in the whole of eternity, only your path crosses his or hers, and you took that precious step to make a difference.

Maybe when you look back at the end of it all, you realize that it is the only thing that you are proud of, that you made a difference to someone’s life.

My son inspires that in me, and I wish for you that there is also someone who needs you in their life.
