People & Probabilities

[tweetmeme source=”staticulator” only_single=false]

A few days ago, i was going through all the tweets that are posted on Twitter, i watched as the people whom i follow tweeted. Something suddenly stuck in my mind.

Felt quite new, but it was old & i thought about it after quite some time.

As always an adventurous spirit, i love discovering new places, watching them, knowing more about them, as i saw the people go pass by me. That day I fell into the swirling motion of my thoughts starting with, how each person has a life, a story of their own, a journey they’ve been traveling through as long as they’ve lived their lives & will continue with it.


And how a simple greeting, a ‘Hi’ or ‘Hey” could make you a part of that journey for those split moments creating a ripple effect. You might be forgotten by most, but some will remember you forever for those little moments. I know because i do remember some & wished that i’d got to know more about them, but no regrets, life is full of fascinating opportunities. So many………….. Probabilities.

By one simple greeting, the incentive to go ahead & communicate, so many destinies clash, meet & get to know each other. People greet, meet & then form relationships, some not so great & some so great & so special that become an integral part of your & their lives. Whether these relationships turn to be good or bad, we learn something from them, they change us, make us stronger, give us a new perspective of this life, helps us understand people in a better way, reveal to us the truth about this life, gives us so much experience & so many other things. The relationships may be friendship, partnership, soul mates, brothers and so many others

Well in my life i did make quite some friends this way, but the friendships were not so great, but i did make some really good friends here & online. And i sincerely Thank God for all of them.

Thoughts raced through my mind & continued, that what would have happened if i didn’t meet these friends who have & had made such a great impact in my life, i could have been so different, i would have never even know who they are. My mind rushed, i felt myself fascinated, shocked, amazed & shaken.

And then suddenly a sweet memory of a person with whom i formed a friendship a little while ago, calmed me down. She was demonstrating a product in a mall (in another country i’d visited), as i watched her demonstrate it, she gave me a smile, i was amazed & @_@ (confused)  that why she’d given a smile to a stranger & an unknown person ?? After she was done with her work, i told her a ‘Hi’ and talked to her, she told me that she smiled at me because she had seen me in the mall some months ago too. And in that long conversation i figured out that she was one of the most amazing, polite & kind people i’d ever met. We shared so much about each other & i was happy that our meeting formed into a good friendship. And it’d all began with her smile & me moving forward to say ‘Hi’.

An amazing experience which pushed me into a whirlwind of thoughts. I also thought that how each of us can make a difference in someone else’s life, make them feel happy, be a part of their lives, bring a change into their lives  & how they can even change you.

This was what happened with me, what about you ? Did any of you have a similar experience ? What do you think about this post ?  Let me know in the comments below, i’d love to know your opinions & thoughts :D!
