I’m feeling very appreciative of life lately. I just watched the documentary “happy” on Netflix and it was just a reminder of how many reasons we have to be happy. So I thought I would start a thread to collect positive, happy and inspirational moments.
Today a man in a wheelchair was riding toward the door, and I left my lunch and went out of my way to open it. There were 10 other people close to the door around him that didn’t budge. He was very thankful. His happiness brightened my day 🙂
The other night at Walgreens, a lady’s card was declined. She was buying necessities like formula and soap. Someone stepped in and paid for it.
While writing this post (I’m walking around town typing this on my phone on my lunch) I was greeted by a stranger who said hello and to have a good day. Another nice man told me a joke.
A few minutes later, a lady went to go put change in the parking meter and while she was looking in her purse, a stranger walked up to her and said, “Do you need some change?” and handed her some coins. Needless to say, it’s been a very pleasant lunchtime stroll. The sun is shining, the air is clean, life is good!
A friend of mine posted on Facebook that she had received a $100 tip and on the receipt the customer wrote, “Happy holidays.”
It’s truly all around us! We just gotta open our eyes to see it. 🙂
If you were a recipient of a random act of kindness recently, what was it? If you performed a random act of kindness, what did you do? If you witnessed one, what did you see? What are you thankful for lately?
