If you have been following my tweets, you’d know that something is bothering me lately. I’m not going to spare you the details, but I used to be angry, disappointed, frustrated and sad at what is happening. Haha that’s a lot of emotions right? I’ve been ranting, expressing my thoughts, and have also vented on Medium. I think I’m going to use Medium more often to vent on current affairs so that this blog can stay as it is (happy stories only!).
Anyway.. ever since I had some discussion with R, my brother, fellow bloggers and friends (read: a number of people!), I felt more calm and relaxed now. I don’t think I can do much about what is happening but I’m going to apply positivity more often. I’m going to try to look at the little good things in life.
So today I went to meet with my friends for lunch. I decided not to drive and took Uber instead. On my way home, I borrowed the driver’s portable charger and used it to charge my phone with my lightning cable. When I reached home and organised my stuffs, I realised that my lightning cable is still attached to the driver’s portable charger! I quickly called him and when he heard the situation, he offered to come back to my house.
I felt relieved, and while waiting for him to arrive, I spared some cash for his tip. To my surprise, he declined my tip when he gave me my lightning cable back. I even insisted and he still refused to take it! That really showed me that his kindness and service is genuine, and I can only pray so that he’ll get rewarded in other ways.
Faith in humanity restored.
The world may be crazy and there are a lot of crazy people who said crazy things and made me upset. But tonight I am reminded that there are a lot of good people as well! Malala can be one of them, but so does my Uber driver tonight, and YOU, of course 🙂
Have a great week ahead!
P.S: I really hope Leo will get his Oscars this year 😀
