You Smile… I Smile

Somewhere Over the Rainbow by: Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

Who has seen the movie “Pay it Forward” or has read the book by Catherine Ryan Hyde? After we watched the movie—didn’t we all say” I totally want to do that!” But the question is — did it ever happened?

Random act of kindness is something to ponder upon this holiday season. I see and meet people from all walks of life every morning on my way to work. Yes,my unpredictable walk to work. I say unpredictable because I work at the Civic Center where all the drug dealers, drug pushers, homeless, and government officials are foreseeable in the area. It’s either a filthy dressed individual or someone in a tailored suit.FullSizeRender

This morning, I arbitrarily bought breakfast for a homeless kid as he asked for spare of change, instead I bought him Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit from Carl’s Jr. All I got was a priceless smile on his face and a heartwarming Thank You.FullSizeRenderFullSizeRender

Homeless people are harmless and most of them are nice. It seems like they are contented with what they have which are just some of life’s essentials: food, clothing, and at times shelter. Can they be accountable for what and who they are right now? Do we blame the system, economy or are they just victims of circumstance. No need to ask the questions why, how and what.FullSizeRender

 

All I can say is that during this holiday season, we cannot be pointing fingers to the unfortunates. The thought of who holds responsible? Stop the blame game and unconditionally give and share our blessings. Whether you give money, time or food, giving back is beneficial. Indeed “It’s better to give than to receive” is true after all.

Let us all bestow our countless blessings, not just this holiday season, but 365 days of the year. Be kind with your words, actions and deeds. One simple own little way at a time. Let it be a virtue – P I F – PAY IT FORWARD. A precious smile is all you get back, but priceless moments of happiness. The true meaning of Christmas.
