Good Samaritan – Be one!

Raise you vibrations to attract the good, and only the best will be filtered your way.

When travelling, one has to be vigilant at all times. You got to keep your bags in check, your documents and the currency you are carrying. Not to forget, the constant improvisation on the ever effervescent contingency plan.

Before I set off for my first Solo Trip, I was a nervous wreck, I was freaking out. For the first time in my life I experienced ‘Cold Feet’. I now understand what the Brides, Grooms, Parents-to-be or anyone else feel when they have a panic attack. I couldn’t relax, I couldn’t talk, I couldn’t eat, I had constant headaches days before my travel.

That’s when my friend KK came to my rescue, he said “Nam, don’t worry! You will be fine, you have traveled before and its gonna be a walk in the park for you. Just relax, breathe and GO!” Honestly I dint believe a word of what he said, for I was thinking of almost cancelling my ticket! Yes! I panicked probably because I was travelling to a non-English speaking country for the first time ever. KK said “Just be positive, and only the good ones will come your way. Be good and you will attract only good people. But stay vigilant and be street smart”.

I finally relaxed and took it one step at a time, I remembered to count my blessings and keep looking for the good. And many Good Samaritans came my way! From my first pit stop at a transit in KL, I had encounters with amazing good hearts. Yes good people have good souls, you can sense it, it feels good – very good to be around them. I met a person from Switzerland who was in KL to see the Petronas – we soon became friends as she was also a solo traveler, we shopped and had lunch together. We had a fantastic time.

When I reached my destination I had several encounters with Good Samaritans. This travel taught me many things, one of them was that there are angels all around. Look for good and you will find it. Help comes in various unexpected ways.

One morning after breakfast i saw that a couple left the restaurant but they dropped their Subway card on their way out. I knew this was a lifeline, I handed it to them and they were grateful for the gesture and asked me what my plans were for the day and instantly tore off a bunch of sheets from their immaculately filed travel file and gave it to me. To this day I don’t know how I would have managed that day ‘without’ that info. It was so detailed and it was ‘absolutely necessary’ and the universe just filled the jigsaw puzzle for me. I was overwhelmed.

Help comes in various forms, every single day we need to remind ourselves that, ‘The Best is YET to come’.

Golden Mantra: Do unto others what you would have them do unto you!

Elegance Personified

Smart, Strong, Affectionate, Forgiving, Pillar of strength and one who radiates warmth. We all have women around us we deeply care about. It could be a friend, lover, a mother, sister or a social worker. When a woman has a beautiful heart, she can’t hide her beauty and its visible.

The beauty amplifies when the person is unaware of it, an elegant woman walking going about her chores, or a lady reading a book unaware of her striking radiance. Like a friend once said, “A gorgeous woman who is unaware of her beauty is profoundly beautiful than one who tries to flaunt it with an air of arrogance and conviction.”

Every woman who is close to our heart is worthy to be treated like a queen and I’m pretty sure few dames take this title way too seriously and come across as Drama-Queens 😉 Well, despite the criticism women don’t fail to influence the member of the opposite gender to follow suit. Yeah we’ve all heard about macho men pulling the stunt of being convincing drama queens 🙂

Whats this hype all about one asks, and the joke is that every day except Women’s day is a Men’s Day! 🙂

So Gentlemen put on your best smile and elevate the happiness of the women close your heart, by doing a simple act of kindness or any simple gesture to accentuate her worth. An honest compliment, could set the tone for the rest of the day.

A company once offered to give a small note to all the women at the gate when they arrived at work. And not a single woman went in without a smile on her face! There were euphoric conversations in the lobby and at the breakout areas!

It doesn’t have to be a fancy bouquet of flowers or an expensive gift neither a lunch/dinner date. I witnessed a colleague paying the flyover toll for a woman who was standing in line behind him! She was ecstatic and appreciated the kind gesture.

I am pretty sure we could all think of various little deeds to bring out the best accentuating curve on the women – her smile!
