I'm back to posting regularly everyone, had a transformational May at so many levels.. Will be sharing loads later on 😉
For now, I'd like to share something magic that happened the other day ✨
A week ago or so @aaronleconte and I went into our regular Indian restaurant, we go there nearly every week its so wonderful..
This guy walks in and tells the waitress its their 3rd year anniversary. I go 'awww how cute' 😍
Then we start talking about if we should pay for their desert, drink or something. After good 20 mins of tuning in, checking and make sure its true and we're not crossing boundaries or anything, we ask the waitress if we can pay their whole meal. (We ask her to make sure its their anniversary😃) She goes 'No, sometimes that's a problem. Some customers wouldn't like that'. I'm like this is not acceptable, we tuned in and its true, it needs to happen😂
We ask her again, this time asking if that ever happened. She says no. We just look at her. Then she suggests to go and ask her manager. She does. We wait. She comes back telling us yeah we can do that 🙌🏼
So we write them a note on the napkin, something like, "May you have many more years full of magic, joy and love together, Isik & Aaron" surrounded by loads of hearts 💜
We pay and hand the note over to the waitress to give it to the couple. Then we leave.
A week later, yesterday Aaron goes to the same restaurant to get us food to eat at mine. He comes back with amazing food and a card that says 'For Isik & Aaron, from Louis + Trish' on it. I'm like 'Who are Louis and Trish?' I keep asking and he just smiles, im getting agitated by that point that Aaron's not answering. Then the penny drops and I'm like, 'Oh my god, is it that couple??'. Aaron laughs ☺️
I open it and start reading it out loud. After the first sentence I loose it, crying my eyes out, handing it over to Aaron. The words, card and the painting at the front which feels like they did.. Powerful energy was flowing out of it..
"To Isik and Aaron,
Thank you for your kind gesture.
We will never forget the gift you gave us; in a time when hope and magic may seem lost. We will be telling this story for many years!
Trish & Louis x"
So magic.. Last sentence really hit me, how such a small gesture can have a huge impact.. I wasn't really expecting to hear from then again and here they were writing us something coming from their heart without even meeting us..
They also had #shibumi written on the left side which we couldn't solve what that meant.. So if someone knows, let me know 😃
That night we ended up watching Pay it Forward which is all about an 11 year old coming up with this idea of helping 3 people, then each person helps 3 people. 3, 9, 27 it grows and grows.. At some point in the movie the guy thinks his idea didn't work but turns out his movement took over few cities..
He starts something small but it becomes bigger than him and its not about him anymore.. It's about the impact it has on people and how people without knowing each other, they're just helping each other out, giving some love and not expecting anything in return..
Of course don't try to manipulate this by having the intention of getting something back while helping, doesn't work, it will backfire..
If anyone out there wants to help someone but thinks the other person will:
- be upset
- might be offended
- might not like it
- not get it
- get angry
Just go for it. You never know how you're going to touch someone's life.. Sometimes it means the world to them and they might not even tell you. And that's ok, its not about getting acknowledgement. And some will, so we were lucky ❤️
Wanted to share this story as we were so moved by it.. And i think i memorised the words on the card by now 😃
May you have someone paying your anniversary dinner as well 😂💙
Have a wonderful weekend lovelies 😘
