This week I have been pleasantly surprised at the love, generosity and kindness of people. When you are confronted daily by angry bus drivers, con artists and people who simply dont care you can be led to believe that most of the world is really like this! This past year has taught me much about my intuition and knowing who to let into my world and who doesn't make it past the door bell. I have often been told that I am too trusting....I used to talk to everyone I would meet and believe that everyone was a good person even if they did bad things! Today I am much wiser and the lessons that have come my way have taught me to wait, be still and observe.... an old friend once told me "people don't always tell you who they are but eventually they SHOW you who they are"....and how true that is!
Through the many lessons that have come thick and fast for the past few years I now am grateful for the true and real friendships that I have in my life. The people who care about where I have come from, where I am going and supporting me in getting there and enjoying the journey by my side. The friends who value me not for what I can do for them but for who they are when they are with me and that is much more important!
"People don't remember what you did but they will remember how you made them feel" and these days every interaction I have I do with a smile, with warmth, with love, with friendship and what I find is that the more you give the more you get back. This week has been a testament to that as the support I have received from my various circle of people who I call friends has been incredible as I begin my new chapter!
The essence of what I want to share through this story is that there are beautiful, kind and generous people in the world even if some days all you see is the opposite.
