You're Lucky Enough If You Meet One Of Them

The best part of living on a string of randomness is, you're never going to know who you're going to meet. Somewhere around the world, there are strangers who are waiting to know you. Somewhere at this very moment, there are strangers who are yet to be friends of yours. Billions of people will encounter you, some of them will know you, a few of them will be close to you, but only a very small number of them will define you. And it's very hard to say which one of them is the real definition of being somebody. But I can tell you this; you're lucky enough if you meet one of these people, at the very least.

1. Those who listen.


Believe me, you may not want to hear anything from anybody. You may not want to get any attention from those around you. But you will definitely want someone to listen to you, and make every word you say worth every minute.

2. Those who tell.

When you're in need, they appear and give what is best for you. They should not tell what you should or shouldn't do, but they should tell what you're supposed to do when you want to. A piece of neutral advice, or thousands of suggestions, they are the ones who provide them.

3. Those who comfort.

It's not necessarily portrayed in a form of physical contact or abstract words. Sometimes it is merely enough to know that they are there for you. When you know they exist somewhere, even though you don't see them, you're already comforted. That's them.

4. Those who walk with.

Be it into the brightest day of your life or the darkest shadow of your fright, life will never be so threatening when you have someone who always walks right beside you. If happiness and sadness don't have any effect on them, what makes you think it will have any on you?

5. Those who stop.

The greatest friend is not the one who always says yes to everything you say. Instead, the greatest is the one who dares to say no to you when you want to jump into something you're not supposed to. A friend who always praises will kill you, and a friend who mocks will make you remain awake.

6. Those who love.

Everyday you wish to love and to be loved. But have you ever thought about a day when you meet people and you never know that one day you're going to fall for them. It's the easiest type of people to meet. You will encounter them sooner or later, and you will feel so great. But remember, the easiest and the greatest don't promise you the best. Nevertheless, they complete you perfectly.

7. Those who inspire.

It is the hardest one to catch. Hear my words carefully. There will be people whose words and wisdom never cease to amaze you. There will be people whose talks and writings never fail to bless you. There will be people who sing songs and poems to you, and not even one bit of regret penetrates you. The only questions are, do you even realize that they are around? And if you do, what are you up to?

That's why I said you're so damn lucky if you're able to meet one of them, and you're luckiest if you have all of them beside you. So, have you met one today?

Igniz: I don't know how you can came up with these but I'm sure irritated (in a good way la!). How many girls' hearts have you tormented to come up with such logic categories? You're good boy!

I have all of it & that's why I'm single! >_<

Slm,

It may take a lifetime for us to bump into such wonderful people,and if accidentally met,that's a blessing indeed.. How lucky. I hv some of my poems turned into songs by a friend but I do not know though,if my writings touch anyone's heart. I'm less than an amateur.

Nice words are indeed pleasing to hear when reminders are often unpleasant to the ears. But these are people who care about us more than we can ever imagine.

I heard you,a bunch of thanks for sharing.. I hope,with His blessings,to cherish every chances given to treasure them with all my will. Met some,and looking forward to knowing more. :)

fakhrul anour: i don't break a girl's heart la. heheh. XD

phyto hystrix: never stop writing if that is what defines u. :)

I looked upside, and all I saw was a fan which didn't swing at all. I still didn't move my sight, I stared at it for a couple of minutes, and you might won't believe. I saw the one who inspires me. I would appreciate if you accept my appreciation for your words which just inspired me(:

*lama tk jenguk blog semenjak dah stop blogging ni. I miss your genius words but no genius you. Haha, kidding XD*

Healmie a.k.a BuRN December 31, 2009 at 1:25 AM  

Ijan, masa aku terperasan Fakhrul Anour aku dh rasa something. Pesal mamat ni mcm familiar jer? Pastu aku buka blog dia n aku tau dia r one of my feveret in Gempak.

Pastu aku pelik, camne ijan kenal mamat nie? Then bile aku baca blog Fakhrul Anour baru aku ingat ko keje kat sana.

Kesengalan melanda cz banyak pikir bisnes sangat...huhu.

p/s: tolong cakap kat FA aku izinkan dia guna nama aku as hero dlm karya dia. huahuahua

miss AIN December 31, 2009 at 1:33 AM

thanks for sharing ijan :)

Igniz December 31, 2009 at 5:41 AM  

ina: hehehe. i accept your appreciation. hehe. :P

burn: ko memang slow! nak jadi hero dalam komik? ko jadi watak lintas jalan leh la.hahaha.

ain: no problem.:)

Emmi December 31, 2009 at 7:08 PM  

As the 2 girls up there, I am deeply touched by this post. My friends say I am "hati keras" and not the sensitive type, but your words had successfully pull up that sensitive side of me. Hahaha. (*lame..)

I realize that I am such a lucky person though to have all those criteria of people surround me :). And I hope that I can have all those criteria in return. Keep up your good work with your wise words.

hello there...
wow..u r such a good writer.
this is so touching..
well, i interested to answer ur last question: 'So, hav you met one??'
My answer will be:YES..i had met with all of them...but sadly..people change..they change for a reason.. and things happen for a reason..
people can b cruel for their own interest..thats too bad right???!!!!

well, if u ask me, i rather not meetin those people..it hurts A LOT when someone was close to u, left their footprint in ur life n suddenly..WALK AWay just like that..

in my opinion, you cant never cling to things coz everything is impermanent..

well,keep on writing igniz...i think u rAWKSS..huhuhu

Igniz January 9, 2010 at 6:36 PM  

anisizaty: hehehe. i don't know what you mean by 'so truee!', i but agree je la. :D

bontemps January 12, 2010 at 11:25 PM  

hello..
tumpang lalu. ^_^

i've met with some of them.but I would like to highlight only ONE, particularly 'those who love'.

You can be around the same person for the next six or seven years, not expecting anything out of them, but somehow or rather they end up being the one who complete you perfectly

That to me is just simply the best ^_^

Igniz January 13, 2010 at 6:26 AM  

bontemps: i must agree that when we have 'those who love' by our side, the feeling is so amazing. :)

SyAhiRah LaLAla February 4, 2010 at 4:14 PM  

This is wise. If there's a "like" box,, I would click for million times :D

Igniz February 4, 2010 at 11:55 PM  

syahirah lalala: thank you :)
