This is something I have noticed about people , while you want to steer clear of some, there are others who really give you a warm feeling each time you come across them and add zest to your life. They may not be related to you, neither are they your close friends, but just by being there, they add that extra something to your day and life each time you come across them . I can name several such people - one is a shop keeper who runs a small store close to my house ... I see him and his wife on and off and each time I leave the shop smiling and feeling good because of the way they interact. There is also an elderly gentleman who I meet when I go for my walks , who never fails to smile and wish and there is so much warmth in his smile and whole personality that it makes a positive difference to my own mood .. There is a lady living close to my house who is the same , she is perpetually in a hurry but always slows down for a few moments to smile and exchange some pleasantries which lift my spirits ..How about you all ? am sure you have your own experiences to share..
Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!
