At any unexpected moment and wherever we may go, we may meet people who may either be a familiar face or totally a stranger to us. To travel far distances with fewer resources and feelings of emptiness, but relying on people's kindness.
Whether at home in the countryside or in the busy metropolis; the chilly mountain top or the ocean's summer breeze; in our homeland and even in the foreign land; we get to experience a different level of kindness from the people we meet on the road.
There are times when we feel the need for a soulful reflection in a different direction. Our desire to be alone, but lacks inspiration and motivation. There's a feeling of solitude and pity with some doubts and fears that nobody is there with us willing to sit and hear; to rescue and to care.
Along the way, some may reach their helping hand while some may walk away. Others may listen while others don't even care. It takes a little act of kindness to open their arms, to listen, and to embrace. The kind of person who is unknown to them, in the beginning, may become someone with a heart as endless as it seems.
Some cultures totally different from ours makes us seek kindness from their hearts. To be friends with them and to better know them. To plant a seed of kindness and to harvest gratitude with gladness.
In our travels some will challenge us, some will rob us, but there will always be someone who will teach us. To stand when we have fallen, to fight when we are frightened, to love and give hope from despair to gladness.
We take a different pathway on the road we choose. Sometimes we get lost but oftentimes have regained the cost. We may take a shortcut to reach the destination with ease and less stress. We may take the common and the known road. We may take the road less traveled and be the person who is most traveled.
All these experiences happen due to different people on the road, some that will hurt and some with a heart. We laugh, we cry, we jump and we try. A shoulder to lean on, a back to carry on, a cheek to kiss, and the memories that will be missed.
Kindness in our hearts will always be the pathway to fulfill our desires. An open heart, a big heart, and a great heart. That is you, not a stranger, but a lovely dear and a sweetheart.
