I’ve never taken Jannah to the hair stylist with me before and I knew I would be there for at least a couple of hours. A little concerned she would be bored, I checked her too-big florescent pink plastic purse that she adores, which is really a beach bag. She had her Leapster game, coloring books, pencils and a few of what I call her on-to-go books.
We arrived to the salon on time and she was mesmerized by the place. “What’s this, what’s that?” I answered her. All her questions stopped when a little girl with such an angelic face wearing brown and aqua blue colors walked through the hanging beads that separated the waiting room from where the hair stylists worked their magic. Jannah stopped in her tracks physically right in the middle of her sentence and the little girl stood the same. They stared at each other with bright unquestionable eyes, surprised to see each other. It was such an inspiration to witness their little souls connecting right before my eyes. It felt like minutes before the little girl waved her hand to say hi to Jannah. Jannah smiled and waved back. My hair stylist called my name and I walked through the same beads reminding Jannah to come along. They walked side-by-side and the friendship had begun just like that!
The little girl was the daughter of another hair stylist and she was so thankful her daughter was blessed with a playmate even if it was just for a couple of hours. They played quietly coloring, talking, smiling and of course playing the game, “Can you do this? Can you do that?” By the time I was under the hair dyer, they were holding hands, dancing and very present with each other. One fell, the other helped to pick her up. They shared their toys and their ideas and they did without judgment, without stipulations and without fear.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to meet someone for the first time as adults and go back to being able to just hug them and hold hands just because we both deserve it? Wouldn’t it be extraordinary for us to just stare at each other upon our energy connecting without fear of judgment, being used or recognized not by the clothes, shoes or hair styles but by the content of our BEING?
There is no need to find out the answers to our questions upon meeting someone for the first time “because if we listen carefully, we will hear,” words of Bob Marley. Shall we listen with our presence as children do? Shall we accept the flow of energy and witness the beauty of why we are here in this fascinating place?
Who are what inspires you?
Sending you ever-flowing positive energy without judgment or fear, but with sincere appreciation and love.
Happy Inspirational Monday!
