Since my posts have been pretty heavy lately, I thought I would write a lighter one.
When I was driving yesterday, I saw a billboard that said something like, “what are the things that move you” or something to that effect. I think it was an ad for a bank or something. Anyway, the advertising obviously worked, since I’m still thinking about it. Ever since I saw that billboard I’ve been pondering what the things are that move me, and thought I would share them on here.
I know that I have quite a few readers from other countries, and whose primary language is not English. So I want to explain this expression for them, since a literal interpretation wouldn’t make much sense. If something “moves you”, it means that it is very meaningful to you; that it touches your heart; that it shifts, or alters, or “moves” something deep inside you; that just by seeing, or witnessing, or thinking about, or knowing this thing, that you are changed as a result – even if the change is temporary, or even just momentary.
Things that move me:
What about you? What moves you?
