What does it mean to have an open state of mind? Exactly what it says, being open. Being open to differences, change, new ideas, a new world, and more importantly, a new us. At times, this world can be closed to all of these things. From judging each other for our difference to judging ourselves because we don’t fit the so called status quo. It’s more than ever crucial that we tear down these expectations and begin to rebuild what we expect in society. Help the homeless. Talk to people who you normally wouldn’t. Get out of your comfort zone. Because by doing this, you obtain a new perspective in life and on the world.
