Life’s a journey and each day, we get to meet people of various socio-cultural backgrounds. One of the most important things I have learnt that exists between humans is “relation”…. And I begin asking myself, “how is my relationship with the people I meet?”.
Then, it gets dawn on me that, everything that has stood the test of time did because someone who’s worthy of trust was involved. Then I ask myself again, “I’m I worthy of someone’s trust?”
We live our lives, yet in the midst of so many people. At sometimes, we find ourself selflessly reaching out to help those in need. Our words, touch, encouragement, visits, sends out thousands of messages that “we care”…
Earlier today, I cross examined my life and asked myself questions on how I have added value to those around me. We all have values, but its our duty to positively influence those around us…. “But again, why take so much pain to help others…its their live not yours”. Then, I noted:
People will remember you, not for the thousands of possesions you got, or numerous infrastructures you have built or amount of money you posses. But, for the little touch you gave when that person needed someone to hold. For the time you spent beside that person when all others fled. For the Kind words you utter when others spoke words of mockery. This, is the greatest legacy ever!!!!
Buildings and possessions and money will one day crumble or we’ll find ourselves lacking. But true act of kindness and love will stand the test of time. No matter how that passes….people will remember you for the good deeds… Because, such acts are engrafted in the hearts of men.
So, I wanna be rich in my relationship with people…… Give a smile☺ to those in need and lend a helping hand🙋 to those who bleed of pain. There’s so much love in our hearts to share.
For this great act, the reward seems so small but has an everlasting effect. The smile of thanks and gratitude that rests upon the face of the one you helped, goes such peace and satisfaction…
Nothing should stand as a barrier, limiting us from reaching out to people and being extraordinary in our services of love. Not race, not age, not gender, not nationality, not status!. We are all one, created by an all loving God who knows no discrimination.
I was so inspired today by a little girl I met. She’s five but has taught me the greatest of lessons in human relationship when she told me “.……..I want to help people, but my friends tell me I’m too small, I’d need to grow up, work and save alot before I do that! But I can help without money… Like I helped my friend when she fell!!…”
Happy Thursday 🌸💕💖!!!!
