Keep Your Head Above the clouds.



{July 1, 2012}   Shining in the dark

Ever since I got my driving licence I stopped walking. It is not because I now thinking I am above it. I wanted to walk, I just did not have the time.

However, today I walked.I had not a care in the world and just walked with no purpose. Troubles aside. It felt good and natural.

On my way back I bumped into a woman I met during the days I walked. I hadn’t seen her in a year but she remembered me. She could see me even in the dark.

At first I couldn’t place her face but then she refreshed my memory. I had helped her, a year back to carry her groceries. She had been a total stranger to me.Most people would have walked by, and they did. Some even drove by but since I wasn’t driving, I took what little I had and offered it to her. She was pregnant. And although I had places to be, things to do, I paused and thought about how she felt. Empathy.

And she remembered that. She gave me back that one thing I have been trying to stand for but due to heartache and general life, I had forgotten.

Its the little things. Give with what little you have. You never know what a little kindness will do to someone’s life. It will put a smile on their face and one day when you are short of things to smile about, they may suprise you and give you a reason to smile.

Everyone has a trouble just like you. Just one act of kindness will touch their soul.

You will start shining in the dark. Just like the stars.



Today I was walking in the local supermarket. I was looking for some juice and when I got to my aisle I saw a myriad of different flavours and brands.

For a brief second I was about to reach for my usual Red grape then a thought struck me.
“I know I like grape by why grape all the time?”.

Yes, I am aware that these things we like define us. They make us who we are. But i think they are also the very things that limit our growth.

You become set in your ways and you stop experimenting.

I realized ,standing in aisle number 4 of Bon Marche,that, although I consistence gives a safe feeling and routine to life, I do not want that.

Knowing what to expect is like watching a movie you have watched before. Although you still get shocked by some minor details, you have the same story.

I am not saying I want to wake up in Uganda tomorrow. Adventure is everywhere. Its in picking a totally different scent. Taking a road home from work you have never travelled on. Buying a pair of socks in a colour you do not have. A colour not recognised as YOUR colour.

Start small. One day these adventures might lead to bigger adventures. Just do not lose yourself completely in the process.

I bought PEACH! What are you going to buy?
