Walk with me?

Today, we are moving so fast that the importance of small yet powerful gestures is getting lost.

Let me ask you something.

When was the last time you held the hands of a loved one?
When was the last time you felt someone’s fingers across yours and let them just hold on to each other?
When was the last time you just went on a walk with someone?

As part of the today’s youth, I know that we all suffer from this disease called “instant gratification”. We buy cars based on how fast they go from 0 to 100 and we are ready to sell them off the moment a new model hits the market. In all this, we have forgotten what it is like to just let the car cruise on a quiet road with your windows down and the fresh air refreshing your soul!

The same is also true in our relationships. It’s easy to be a conqueror on tinder, but it takes ages to find someone who you can be comfortable with sitting in silence! A night spent with a random person is soon forgotten but an act that touches your core gives warmth to the heart for a long time.

I don’t blame people for forgetting the joys of simple acts. It’s just that life has become very fast now and no one has the time to indulge in such delicacies with a free heart to be able to understand it’s true value. But if one can just walk alongside the beach holding the hands of a loved one and let the atmosphere really sink in, the person will have an experience that invokes such levels of unparalleled emotion and calmness that the rest of the world will seem to have become a shade lighter.

Stop. Take a break. Slow down. And ask your loved one for just one thing and see the magic:

Walk with me?
