How are you all doing? I am doing good. I am enjoying the beginning of this new year with some renewed goals on reading and learning.
I enjoy reading, because, whatever I read brings a change in me. I grow a bit more as a person.
Words, I feel have some special magic in them. They help us communicate with others as well as with our own selves. I feel very good when I read or hear certain words like love, heart, roses, magic, faith, goodness, kindness, gratitude, joy, happiness etc… You know how I love making a list of positive words just to change my mood.
So, when I see such words, they catch my attention and make me want to share them with you all. I want you all to experience such words and the feelings associated with them on a daily basis so that they seem to be the most natural thing to you and eventually you start believing in them.
Yesterday, while going through Instagram I came across a wonderful poem by Alison Malee (her Instagram handle: @alison.malee ) from her book “the day is ready for you”.
The poem goes like this:
what a simple way
to tell another
that there is love
to be found
in the world.
What do you think? Isn’t “being kind” a powerful way of confirming to all the people struggling, that there is still love and humanity left in this world. Believe me when I say that our kindness is what such people need to be able to live on. They get a hope that things will eventually get better and that the world is with them. This hope is enough to help them bounce back into a life full of happiness and success.
The kindness of people around is sufficient to help a person rise and shine once again.
Do let me know what you think.
