Amazing experience! Amazing moments! Amazing people make amazing moments. You can find yours anywhere- most times in the least expected places and least expected times. At the bus stop. At the airport. In a coffee shop. The experience leaves a smile on your face. They come in different shades.

Here is an example:

You are on your way home one evening, and by some divine appointment find yourself standing at the bus-stop with a total stranger. You both find a common ground to share thoughts about current trends and all. You talk about specifics or everything. And you realize, during that short period it is like you both knew each other from Adam. Many times you consciously stop yourself from asking- "have we met before?"

The conversation is totally amazing!

Then you both have to part ways at some point in your journey. His/Her bus arrives.

You say, "It was so nice to meet you..." or "it was great chatting with you...thanks for the insightful thoughts..." adding other good wishes you might have for him or her.

You don't even have to make physical contacts- no handshakes, no hugs. But still the connection is strong. There is a God.

After the person departs you realize, oh! I didn't even collect his/her phone number, or facebook ID, or Twitter handle.

There is no need. Such amazing experience is meant for that moment of amazing-ness. Social networks cannot extend the connection that was only meant to last for the moment.

You might never meet again. But now you have learned the art of being kind to everyone you meet.

Be thankful! Keep the smile on your face. Pass it on.

Have a terrific week!
