    Once, I was at a bus stop in LA

    and it was raining heavily. I didn't have an umbrella, and I was soaked from head to toe. A man came, stood at the bus stop and just asked if I'd like to share the umbrella. I thought it was both numerous, since I was already soaking wet, and the nicest, most kindest thing ever...

    I wish we'd stop condemning others

    I did my groceries yesterday.

    While falling in line at the counter, I saw 2 boys ahead of me. They look poor, their slippers were worn out and wearing old shirts. I looked at what they're going to buy. Biscuits and a box of milk. When it was their turn, I told the cashier that I'll be the one to pay for it...

    I live my life under the motto

    that I want to leave this world a better place for having been here. Those who are only out for what they can get for themselves make me feel physically ill. I know I am not perfect, or anywhere close for that matter. But I try my best as everyone should.

    Sometimes it seems like all the old-fashioned

    courtesy of the world is gone. We now live in a world where insults are given out just as freely as compliments, where politeness is often mistaken for flirtatiousness. People see me as odd because I still call people “sir”, “miss” and “ma’am”. I still use ‘may...

    People being kind to each other would be,

    for sure, a beautiful sight. Indeed, not all people are kind enough, but it does not mean we should be one of them, rude and angry.

    Everyone is going through their own struggles.

    we dont always know what is behind certain words or actions or their past experiences. Too many people are out for themselves.

    I don't retaliate. I feel like you make your own karma, and I'd rather have positive than negative on my side. They can be miserable if they want to, but I don't have to let it rub off on me.

    Teenagers these days,

    in my opinion, are rude to adults and their peers. What ever happened to being kind and respectful to one another? Say I'm old fashioned, but when I see children talking back and yelling to their parents it makes me feel like there is no hope in society anymore.
