I know,I know,nobody talks about ideas like kindness and compassion anymore-The world is a rat-race,where everyone follows the motto of “To each his own!”,and more often than not,people do not have the time to even stop and think about these basic traits of humanity that make us who we are!
As you very well know,yours truly is a daydreamer,a hopeless romantic:which obviously means that the notion of evil exists for me only in fairy tales,only to have a change of mind and heart later,to live happily ever after!(I know,its my naivety,I need to grow up,and look at what the world really is,but I do sincerely,honestly believe that it could be a better place-It could be everything we want it to be!And its my experience,that the Universe never disappoints!)
The world is rainbows and unicorns and butterflies and all things pretty for me,and it works fine!Actually,Life’s grand,the way live it!People call me a kid all the time,and there are times when my overthinker of a mind,and exaggeratingly oversensitive drama queen of a heart suffer due to unnecessary bouts of rudeness,but that’s really fine!If you see me anywhere,and I know you,even through acquaintance,or some long lost connection,you CANNOT dodge a smile from me!Heck!I wave at people on roads and other vehicles from vehicles:buses,cars,even bikes! Ofcourse that earns me weird looks from all over the place,but if something pleases your heart,go on ahead and do it,flaunt it to the world,and wear the frowns like crowns!(I’m in an uber philosophical mood today,so bear with me pretty please)
I remember seeing this quote going all over the internet:Kindness doesn’t cost a thing!Sprinkle that shit everywhere!
I have taken this quite literally,and I would love that all of you lovely people do it to!Lets make it our mission to sprinkle this world with an overdose of compassion!This might sound very cliche,but I always wonder why there’s such a shortage of the basic virtues that make us amazing!I mean,it takes the same amount of time to do something good,something compassionate,instead of being mean!If one word,one little gesture from you can lighten up a sad face,and brighten someone’s day,why is there even a choice except to be good?And,I kid you not,it feels sooo good,to be good,and to spread smiles!
Imagine yourself making someone’s day,just by a simple gesture,for which you didnt even have to go out of your own way!Felt good didnt it?I knoww!=D Beginning with simple gestures like a “good Morning” or even a “Hello” with a smile,to everyone you meet,from the watchman to your driver,and to your boss,can give you an idea of how compassion can brighten your day more than anyone else’s,and that too,without any extra efforts!(With all due respect,and loads of love,to chocolate,I would say that compassion works even better than chocolate!)
Today,on the 20th of February 2015,a thousand voices of bloggers from all over the world come together to speak for compassion!Try it once,and practice it every damn day,for it really does nothing but goood!
On that note,peace!
And loads of love!Thanks for reading,you people mean so much to me!
