According to Worldometers, 4 million blog posts have been written today.
Worldometers is a website with live statistics about all sorts of things concerning the world such as population, internet, and the environment. Therefore, a source of wonder, though unexplained.
I was looking for an approximate number of obese people in the world which I could compare to the current population because of a quote I read: “Half of the world is trying to lose weight while the other half has nothing to eat.” Suddenly, I remembered Worldometers. Apparently, there are around 8 hundred million undernourished people in the world while there are 1.6 billion that are overweight. Surprisingly it is pretty much exactly like the quote indicates. It has always boggled me as to how they have all this information on the world and looking at the slower rising numbers concerning people I tend to think: Which one was I?’ and ‘Which one will I be?’ Frankly, the statistics make my head hurt.
Going to the blog post statistics, I can’t help but think what it means. Is mine going to be the 4,291,963rd one- nope it just passed. Has someone made a similar post to this already? How will I ever make my voice heard?
I don’t have the answer, but I figure if someone is passionate enough about what they’re doing and open to all sorts of new opportunities, there isn’t anything they can’t achieve. I intend to be just that.
In the motivational spirit here’s my favorite quote from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho:
“But the sheep had taught him something even more important: that there was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired. (…) “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it,” the old king had said.”
