The only reason why I chose that as the post title is only because of the irony. We live life unconditionally. We love unconditionally. Carefree, without a condition. This concept is not widely accepted by the masses. The masses need borders, limitations, guidelines. Thus why we have religions, territories, governments, to put condition on how we should live our lives.
The past few months have been a learning experience. Ups and downs and mostly idleness. But I have been blessed to meet too many wonderful people that have been thrown to my path so I can learn from them.
I try hard in life to live and do the things I feel right, the things I feel that I’m destined to do, even the smallest things. A couple of weeks back, I was walking to my car from the office. A dodgy looking off duty security guard approached me.
“Kak, saya bukan orang jahat. Akak ada dua ringgit tak? Saya lapar. Bos saya takde.”
(Sis, I’m not a bad person. Do you have a couple of bucks? I’m hungry. My boss is not around)
I shook my head and walked off looking scared. A few steps down the road, I felt really bad. I took out my wallet. There’s 7 ringgit in it. I turned around.
“Dik, dik! Nah!”
(Hey! Take this)
Handed him 5 ringgit.
“Banyak ni kak. Saya nak dua ringgit je.”
(This is too much. I just need 2 ringgit)
“Takpe la. Ambik je. Rezeki.”
(It’s okay. Take it. A blessing)
“Terima kasih kak.”
It’s not about making me feel better. I just hope he’ll pay the kindness forward. I know a lot of people who have bought me lunch and food when I could only worry about the few bucks I have in my wallet to survive another day.
Kindness is unconditional. Learning is unconditional. Where do you put boundaries and limitations to all these?
Tomorrow is another day. Will I procrastinate, will I be productive? I just hope the smallest thing that I’ll do will be the god of something bigger in the future. For now, I’ll leave you magicians with this,
A true magician takes fate and failure as magical as his successful magic tricks.
