Life has so much to offer, beautiful people, beautiful souls, and beautiful relations. But all we look forward to is the definite beauty standards and money in a person and make a quick judgment. This guy was actually disgusted when a lady with a big body sat near him on a plane. But, that flight changed his perception of beauty forever.
It all started when
This guy in a plane from Tokyo to Hong Kong was making himself seated when he noticed a plump lady walking towards him with a smile. She came and sat next to him and made herself comfortable with the space her only seat provided her. She rested her arm on the armrest. The man next to her got disgusted by the presence of a fat woman near him. He felt as if his worst nightmare had come true.
A conversation initiated
Laura was her name. After making herself comfortable, she initiated a conversation with the man next to her. With utmost loathing, he replied to her greetings. She started telling about her adventures and journeys. She talked excitedly about herself and her trip to Hong Kong to see her friends. She rattled off a list of things she was going to buy for her students in the boarding school where she was teaching. She wasn’t carried away by the unfriendly behaviour of the man who didn’t seem to care about her or her questions. She was a kind of considerate and a kind woman and would warmly receive the staff when they offered her drinks and stuff.
An amazing conversationalist
The man realized that Laura took utmost care that he had enough space to have food and drinks. ‘I don’t want to clobber you with my elephant size!’ she said with utmost sincerity. This really made him drop his ego and then an interesting conversation followed. He learnt that the lady was known on subjects like philosophy to science. She had made good research on very unimportant topics. She had a great analysis on cultural issues and everything and this really made him realize how amazing this lady was.
Attended the Most
She had such a humorous personality and light hearted nature that even the flight attendants loved her. She cracked several jokes about her weight and even gave good advice to one of the flight attendants on weigh problem. The man then initiated a conversation again and asked Laura, ‘Have you ever thought about losing some weight?’ ‘No. I’ve worked hard to get this way. Why would I want to give it up?’ ‘You aren’t worried about cardiovascular diseases that come with being overweight?’ ‘Not at all. You only get the diseases if you’re worried about your weight all the time. You see advertisements from slimming centers that say, “Liberate yourself from your extra baggage so that you are free to be yourself”. It’s rubbish! You’re liberated only if you’re comfortable about who you are, and what you look like any time of the day and anytime of the year! Why would I want to waste my time on slimming regimes when I have so many other important things to do and so many people to be friends with? I eat healthily and walk regularly; I’m this size because I am born to be big! There is more to life than worrying about weight all day long”. Well said Laura! She had a point.
Laura had an amazing confidence. She said, ‘Folks often see me as a fat lady with big bosoms, big thighs and a big bottom that no man would even bother to cast a glance at. They see me as a slob. They think I’m lazy and have no willpower. They’re wrong”. She continued, ‘I’m actually a slim person inside. I’m so full of energy that people won’t be able to keep up with me. This extra flesh is here to slow me down, otherwise I’ll be running everywhere chasing after men!’ ‘Do men chase after you?’ he asked jokingly. ‘Of course they do. I’m happily married, but men still keep proposing to me. Most of them have relationship problems and they need someone to confide in. For some reason, they like to talk to me. I think I should have been a counselor instead of a school teacher!’ I need amazing confidence like her.
She bid goodbye
With all her amazing jokes, she had made the entire journey amazing. As soon as the flight landed, the crew members joined her in the aisle and bid her goodbye. The man said, “When we waved goodbye to each other at the arrival lounge at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport, I watched her walking towards a big group of adoring adults and kids. Cheers sounded as the group hugged and kissed Laura. She turned around and winked at me. I was stunned, as the realization set in: Laura was the most beautiful woman I had ever met in my life.”
