In countless interviews, I have had chefs baring their soul n sharing the wisdom of their lives , what I received in the form of words is a culmination of light over time .
Understanding this brought me to the point of acceptance and what it is.
Hearing my son’s words, that
“Mommy, you r beautiful.” And
“I love your everything.”
Brought me a lot of joy.
The words erased all the pain n negativity and put me at ease.
Then yesterday on my way to work, I stopped because I smelled the scent of grass that was cut.
The scent cut into the air n I had to stop.
Truly wonderful just to
That scene mattered to me.
Just like how Mr Ng said, it was a moment of seemingly nothingness.
But it gave him a breakthrough.
This gave me mine.
All the events , things, people that stopped me in life.
Was just like how I stopped to smell the scent of freshly cut grass.
They just stopped me.
There was nothing more to that stop if I hadn’t portrayed other things into those stops.
They were just events n things that had to happen, because conditions were present. Like a ripening that had to release a scent.
That’s just that.
When I smelled the grass , I felt wonderful and privileged. To just stop n smell. I remembered how I stopped to smell the roses in paris.
I could have attended to the stops in my life like I did yesterday. But due to much ignorance , I did otherwise .
But if I hadn’t , I wouldn’t have this understanding n perception today.
The wonder of stopping.
