There was something in that smile

Slowly I started talking with them, from the little kids to elderly ones. They shared me their stories, the new gossips, their festivals and how they celebrate it. They told me about how their life changed, what work they do, about their children who worked in the cities and the struggle they went through. The kids wandered around me, showing me their play areas and their secret hide-outs. They were all friendly, welcoming and treated us as one among them. I walked along the green fields, sat by the pond, watched the cows grazing and enjoyed the evening prayers in the temple among the villagers.

We need to connect with one another more often

Keywords: current events , covid 19 , friendship , loneliness , pandemic

research indicates even when we think we don’t want strangers to say hello or interact with us, we are happier when they do. It should no longer be taboo to talk to people on elevators and subways or to sit in the front seat on Lyft rides. You should pay close attention to body language and personal boundaries as you approach someone new, but you shouldn’t avoid eye contact at all cost. Even brief eye contact can make people feel more connected and included.

How do you express yourself to the world?

Keywords: from the dark room, from the living room, life, personal growth, photography

Do you think you don’t? Well, the truth is, you do. We all do. We do it through our behaviour, our actions, our words, our choices and preferences, the way we dress, how we furnish, decorate and live in our homes, the way we eat. If you are alive, you are expressing yourself. Do you ever stop to think about that? To wonder what you are “putting out there? To wonder what impacts your life is having on the world? To wonder what ripples of information, energy and substances you are sending out, just by the way you live?
