Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Bringing More Awareness To My Day

--by greenurlifenow, posted Jun 12, 2017
I take transit to and from work every weekday. Needless to say, it can be stressful due to full trains and buses, and the riders can test my nerves every day.

Today, I was riding the train on the way home. I wasn't really paying too much attention to the people around me who were standing on the crowded train.

Then, I noticed a young woman standing by me, who looked quite pregnant. I tapped her on the shoulder and offered her my seat. She was grateful and thanked me as she sat down.

It really is true that when you do something kind for someone else, you do feel good about it, and it lifts your mood. I often get impatient with others, which I will try to work on improving.

Let's all work on being more patient and kind. One day at a time.
