I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

Impact of kindness

"Kindness is a language the a dumb can speak and a dead can understand". 

The power of a gesture is beyond the comprehension of a human mind. It may seem very trivial and we all are hearing it since time immemorial. A gentle touch, a kind smile, little help but these acts of good will have an unexplainable impact on fellow beings. 

We have always heard stories of kindness. Wherein, a kind word changed someone's heart or a slight gesture of love and care was so impactful that it melted some one's soul. 

I remember reading a story where a girl had recently shifted to a new place. With new people, new place she was simply unable to adjust herself. She had also had some trouble in the recent past.
She went to school each day only to find that all her classmates had their own 'groups and friends' and no one really bothered to befriend her. She felt lonely c
All of it had made her extremely depressive. 
One day, precisely a day before christmas she felt extremely sad and uncared for. So she decided to commit suicide.
She wrote a letter to her family and others to tell them her condition and was determined to give her life that day. 
As she came out to post the suicide letter she had written, suddenly she found a card on her name. 
She was shocked and surprised. When she opened it she found it was a card from a guy at school who wanted to be her friend and had invited her to christmas party tomorrow. 

This gave her a new hope and she ditched the idea of suicide that day. 
Amazing isn't it? What a deep impact just a little care and love had on her mind! It saved her life. Gave her hope. 

But what if she hadn't opened the letter box? Or what if she had continued the implementation of her plans? 

Here comes the catch. Undoubtedly, the power and impact of every single act of kindness and love is remarkable but we need to be receptive. 
Being receptive means that we should keep our hearts and hope open to such acts and gestures. 
We should be ready to accept and have faith. 
We should be ready to give and take. 
The impact can only be created and sustained if people keep on giving as much as they receive and vice versa. 

Also, we should try to be kind and caring as much as possible. You don't know how many lives you can touch and heal just by these little gestures.

Faith is a very important aspect of it all. If you have your hopes and trust high, things will get easier for you. 
We all receive our share of love, kindness and care. Now its upto us whether we want to let it pass by unnoticed or whether we open ourselves to let it create the desired impact on us. 

The choice is yours.
