Yesterday someone said very kind words to me –
“You are the most amazing person I have ever met in my life, you are very kind, you have very good heart, you are very helpful, you talk to everyone very gently, you are sensitive to other’s likes and dislikes, you are very caring, you always help others, I like when you say thank you to everyone whether to auto wala, bus wala even to a authority guy who fined you couple of hundreds of bucks for their own system faults, I like when you help beggars and poor people and I like so many other goodness in you.” ~ By a very special friend.
I felt very good listening to such kind words for me and I felt very shy.
Then I replied, Goodness is a choice, In our life we always get two choices – 1) lead a life of goodness or 2) lead a life of badness.
Either we can choose “anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
Or we can choose “joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
It’s all on your choice; what you want to choose and how you want to lead your life and how you want to be remembered by others.
and I chose to be good.
