    Beautifully put Benjamin, positivity breeds positivity. Even if the origins are different. Reminds me of Gru in the Minion movie (Despicable Me).

    Nice words benjamin.

    Whatever we give, comes back to us multiplied. 100%True with smiles. Even strangers return it back. In fact there is no stranger when there is a smile.

    And ofcourse, when we are brimming with love, we give away more smiles and distribute love liberally.

    Thanks benjamin for this refreshing post

  17. Aw, beautifully written.

  18. The one in love radiates that feeling and it is very contagious:) Smiling people can make others smile, sparkling eyes along with it, can make everyone say “Hi” Unless something more than a love affair was at work her, I think you might not have elicited the same responses on your run:) Very cleverly told,in such few stanzas Benjamin…You made me smile!

    • Thanks. That’s a very thoughtful comment. Perhaps, at times, we do get back what we send out into the universe. Love was in the air on that run but perhaps love is just a synonym for something greater. Really, thanks for reading!
