We search for wealth and we search within… We’re advocates of environment or destroy it with bare hands… We write, we sing, we build, we dance; we swim, we cook, we sew, we work the land… We help and watch pain passing by behind our eyes; we give freely and we expect reward. We judge and we accept..
Today I choose to share another book excerpt with you all. Actually 2, describing the main characters. This book will be my piece of writing introducing you to the world of a madly in love woman… Is like a surgery on an open heart…
But that’s all I will tell you. I would love to learn your feedback!
Some may criticise my view, yet I will accept that. We all have our beliefs, we inherit them or build them over time. I choose to accept the inheritance, yet move on and adjust it with my own-built views.
Inspired by Chinedu Ihekwoaba There’s nothing here. Yet so much to find. Just open your eyes, your mind, your heart. Never let it go. Hold tight and say it loud: … Continue reading Day 5 of flavor of kindness: Let the magic begin!
My first, ever published, poem…
We wake up each morning, rush to the office, forget to display that healthy smile, surrendering – instead – to the cold comfort of oblivion. Oblivion towards the wonders of life, towards what we enjoy the most, a complete acceptance of automatism. At a quick glance, must of us are grumpy, craving for that energy-bosting giant cup of coffee.
I have a neighbour. We barely ever talked more than a polite “Good day to you” to which he always replies: “May you be loved!” I always saw in him a good man, greeting everyone with this amazing formula. This fact always sent me the vibe of kindness.
You see, people – times and often – judge teachers. Why? Because they might be raising their voices to cover the noise of 20 or more kids, because they straighten up their kids’ behavior and, sometimes, not in the kindest way; because they want to communicate with the parent about their child’s not-that-fine way of being in the community. Stop! Rules? Hmm… But that’s another topic.
By the time I’m writing this, I’m heading to work, so things can happen with each and every breath I take. But here it goes…
Some of us believe that finding the best in others, perceiving them as humans – above all – and letting kindness display its glow is more important. However, as I am a dreamer, yet question many things (most of them way beyond the surface), I wonder: do we understand exactly what kindness is? What does kindness drive as consequence? In few words: why should we be kind? Can we see kindness as the flavor of the perennial season of life? And what do we do to reach it, if it’s not innate?
Lessons to learn:
We, as people, are mean; yet we need to spread love… Fighting for things to change;
Learn to care and we’ll master empathy;
Look around us and take the necessary action if we have a strange feeling – that “something’s about to happen” feeling;
Comfort the people who need a shoulder;
Stop the rush – time is relative…
