Does everything you touch turn into gold?
With gold I mean, laughter, smiles, trust, tears of joy, giggles and all the good stuff.
Do you spread joy and happiness wherever you go?
Do children love you and do babies stop crying when you hold them in your arms?
Are you always called upon when people need someone to do the impossible?
Are you in love with life?
I am lucky to have people in my life who have the golden touch. I always spend time with them, hoping one day some of that goodness will rub off to me. It’s not easy being happy and positive all the time. That’s why am always intrigued and have a lot of respect for those special souls with the golden touch.
Looking at the way they live their lives. I have noticed certain characteristics that they all seem to share. Having a golden touch is an acquired attribute, something that you and I can learn as well.
I will share with you the 5 things I love about a friend of mine called Wanjau. He is one of the people I know who has the golden touch, that never ceases to amaze me.
He always shows his human side. Even when sometimes I might think he doesn’t make mistakes and that life is a smooth ride for him. He sits me down and pours his heart allowing me to see a glimpse of him…the human side. That is just priceless.
He gives even when it’s not expected. I have never gotten used to this side of him. Do you have one of those friends who are always there for you no matter what? That friend has the golden touch.
He always makes me feel needed, even if it’s something that he can do effortlessly. He makes me feel part of what ever project we might be working on.
Down to earth
He meets me at my level. No two people are the same, and it takes a strong person to be humble enough to meet someone at their level. It’s a sign of respect and understanding that can’t be bought.
Keep secrets secret
I know from the deepest part of me, that when I tell him my secrets he would never tell. He keeps secrets secret and this is just golden. The person you open your heart to and pour all your secrets to, has to have a good heart, that’s why it’s easy for you to tell them your secrets.
Do you have a golden touch, or even better do you know someone with a golden touch?
