the world is ours
My mind was open, there was a closed door to the world and I just opened it to let the world be part of me. I also opened the windows so I can fly away and come back home whenever I want. I feel free and connected with everything at the same time, because every time I open my wings I just want to go through places I've never been before, coming back to my place in this world that in fact is really smaller than we thought.
The funny fact is that I never thought I could do it. I used to think the world was too big for a little girl like me. I used to think I would never get to know people all around the world and I was totally wrong for my happiness. Today I've got friends in every little place I can think of and even though they are miles and miles away from me, I know they will be there. It doesn't matter what time zone they live or what native language they speak, we are just the same: young people wishing to have a piece of the world in our hands.
This changing in my way of thinking came when I just discovered my new hobby from now on. Some time ago, I met a girl here on TC. She was from Poland and I was really glad to talk with her, because she was the first person from Poland I ever said hi. After talking a bit, this girl asked me if I would like to exchange letters with her. I always loved to write, so I stayed pretty excited by the fact I couldn't refuse. She sent me a first letter in a blue box and I just couldn't believe someone from the other side of the world really wanted to be my friend.
I learned several things about Poland, and I shared the picture of this letter in the internet. Two days after I did it, more three people contacted me about pen palling. I went to see why and I found a thousand people that do it for a long time and that was how I feel in love.
Today I got the second letter from Poland and I'm so glad to be friends with these girl, it seems like we know each other for a whole life! I've also written to California, Barcelona and Holland, and I totally enjoyed doing it. Thanks TC for opening this door for me, otherwise still today I would not have been doing it. I just wish I could be in California, Costa Rica or Poland to meet one of these new friends of mine, distance is just a little detail. I'm meeting a new world I never imagined to be in, but I never want to leave it.
