Call It Spring flats
I had a cup of Pan de Manila's coffee and my energy is through the roof! I also had a couple (ok, several heeheehee) tamarind candies so my sugar level really is beyond my normal state.

I want to share a quick post about a realization I had today.

Kindness is contagious (I feel weird comparing it to a disease but it's the closest analogy I have). Once it's out there, people can barely resist being it, absorbing its impact and just being overwhelmed by the side effects.
Being infectious, it has to come from a source. A source strong enough to fight anything that hinders its preservation (okay I'm being too scientific). Well, if you haven't figured it out yet, the source is you (or me, in this case).

Slight segue:
I don't think I can ever write a novel. My mind's too excited with different topics, a single storyline. Hence this "slight segue" section. I think I need to do more of this just to satisfy my blabbing fingers or my coffee stained neurons. I have a degree in Psychology, thus, all the scientific references. Okay back to my realization.

I am usually not the kind of person to do good first. I always reciprocate. I get tired from being nice easily. But this time, with all the energy from the magic coffee, I surprised myself by being the one to initiate a conversation, to start a rekindling of friendship, something of that sort but less dramatic.

It's a great feeling to be able to be a bigger person than you usually are. But the better feeling is to see the effect it has on the receiver of the action. It's digital good karma, baby! It's that quick! The receiver, someone I haven't talked to for quite some time, returned the kindness I naturally, unintentionally, did.

Being the bigger person is hard but it is so so worth it.
