Yesterday, I was at a very looooooong doctor’s appointment, and basically falling asleep atop my laptop (I was trying to get some work done while at my appointment). Out of the blue, a warm coffee cup was handed to me by a nurse who I’d earlier been commiserating with about feeling sleepy.
This person I barely know, other than some hellos and how-are-yous. I was floored, in the best way.
Enough so that I wanted to tell you guys about it! Kind, thoughtful people may seem few and far between in today’s world, but that little gesture was enough to restore my faith in humanity. A solid reminder that there is good in the world still — people with full hearts and positive intentions.
Since Easter is coming up this Sunday, it seems even more timely to share a message of kindness and paying it forward. I know not everyone celebrates Easter and that’s cool, but in my own life it’s always been a symbol of hope and love and renewal. Hand in hand with spring, really. And regardless of any religious foundation, those are all good things.
As you head into this weekend and onward, don’t be afraid to let a little kindness pour out of your heart. Just a reassuring word or small action does the trick. Sounds totally goobery, but just go with it. You never know who you’ll help without even knowing it.
What are your plans for the weekend? Anything fun for the holidays?
