The Little things that matter

Standard

 

You know about one of those random people and their acts that just make your day? Something like that happened to me. Yesterday I was in the store trying to choose between two identical products, but I really was just standing there lost in my thoughts blocking the entire aisles. This old man trying to come through stopped to say hi, and made his way between my cart, my thoughts, and I.
I don’t know how much time elapsed, but he eventually came back through the aisle were I was still standing staring at the same items… Or at life.
He asked me if I was deciding, and somehow he woke me up. I tried to answer but I couldn’t get a word out. Just nodded my head in half a smile. I must have been carrying the misery of the world on my face because he stood there with me for a minute and gave me a warm smile that translated to me as : “Everything will be ok child”. He dug in his pocket and handed me a handful of candy… (I am grown enough to accept candy from stranger.)
He brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart.

What made me happy is that, at times when you think that everything is going bad and nothing good is left in the world, you see these little acts of kindness and a little faith in humanity is restored.

One simple act of kindness or humanity could mean the world to somebody

Blogging 101-Day 1: Introducing myself

Standard

Hello, my name is Nadine. I’m pretty much random. I’ll do whatever and say whatever no matter how anyone feels about it. I tend to be really honest with people because I expect people to be honest with me. I like to explore places, and I’m most tolerant of nearly all types of music with exceptions. I like colors, nature and foreign cultures. I’m an atheist but every pure heart is my temple, mosque and church. I’m a hopeless romantic; I love flowers, poetry, sunsets and long walks on the beach. I’m chronic insomniac since I was eleven but my insomnia has helped me to boost my creativity. I’m a dreamer and a rebel; nothing makes my blood boil more than racism, injustice, inequality, and discrimination. I’m vegetarian to the core since I was eight, yes even at that early age I realized that I don’t need an animal sacrifice to eat. I’m never really sure of anything. I’m just 100% sure that nothing ever stays the same, and I embrace that. Thus why I don’t even know what my favorite songs are. (Why? Because our preferences change with life. Don’t suppress the change.) My interests vary like my moods, I’m often called strange, mysterious and interesting, and I like it.

I love to write about everything: love, society, life, religion, politics, poetry, music, feelings, etc Writing gives me daily opportunities to be alone with my thoughts. Writing is something that occupy me from thinking about how harsh and difficult life can be. Writing makes me alive as it is a way to let your soul flows onto empty paper where you transform this blank canvas into beautiful art. Writing can sometimes be used as a medium to pull us away from reality and sometimes it will inspire us to change. Hopefully, one day my writing will make a difference in this world. I decided to blog as it will help me to connect with an endless list of people who just like me love to write; and only a limited number of my friends know about this blog.
