Lessons learnt in bus rides,

Decided to write on bus rides.
On the previous blog post, I wrote that I like taking bus rides in the morning.

So I decided to write about the reason why.

Taking a bus is not just to travel from one place to another.
Rather, they are lessons I have in buses.

In the morning, if I do not get a seat in the bus, guess what I like to do?

I like to observe people.

Well, and I realised how fast our society was going.

How fast it was moving at a speed of light.

And everyone was tired, trying to catch up with that sparkling light to the future.

Another thing I observed and like to see, is especially kind acts in the early morning.

It really gets to me when I see how tired this person is, but yet is kind enough to give up their seats for those who needs it.

It really warms people’s heart to see such acts.

Small little acts, such as people moving, give places for others to get on the bus, really means alot to someone.

Maybe not everyone noticed, but yes.

A person can choose not to bother, and in the end, the other party couldn’t get up the bus and have to wait for another one.

Well people do that, not for any rewards, but did you know, a simple thank you, can make a difference in one person’s day and life.

The person could be feeling moody all day, and that simple thank you, can brighten up his/her day.

And life? Of course, this could be a trigger to people’s lives. When they know that their “Thank you” can make a difference in people’s lives, they will probably remember to do so next time.

And when this becomes a long term effect, the world will definitely become so much better!!!

“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” 
― Henry James

  1. Beautiful writing… thank you for sharing your experience, process, learning, perceptions and wisdom… i too have learned much from observation practice during bus rides and subway too 🙂

  2. My religion/world view has come down to just two things now: never be the cause of anyone’s misfortune and never pass up an opportunity to perform a charitable act. Observation from the bus ride (or even from the bus bench)is unique but valid, like watching the world go by at the park, the ocean shore or in the forest.
