Random acts of Kindness… such an amazingly, impactful thing. This weekend I was on the receiving end of this and I can’t stop thinking about it. How it made me smile. How it immediately changed my mood. How it made me want to pass it on.
Typically, I am not one to engage strangers. I don’t like to meet their eyes in the store or get involved in any form of small talk. It is actually painful for me. This weekend I happened to look up as an older woman approached me. No chatting, no pretense, just a few very kind words. That was all it took.
It made me smile and I thanked her and walked away (a little embarrassed because I do not know how to accept compliments graciously).
Now I need to pay it forward.
