I know I don't appreciate things as much as I should. I know I discount the sacrifices that probably went into making me who I am. I know I am the first to complain about anything and everything. I know I don't watch my mouth. I know I say hurtful things. I know I do hurtful things. I know I never pause to think of all the things that go into trying to make a dream come true.
I don't cry. I can watch the saddest of films and the most tearjerking of novels without a solitary tear making its way up to my eye, let alone down my cheeks. If ever I do feel those tears welling up I make sure to brush them away or to swallow them down, to laugh them off with an inappropriate comment that probably makes the situation worse.
But I teared up when I watched this.
And because I'm me, I now feel silly. Because who tears up over a Google ad?
