Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Unexpected Massage Turned the Day Around

--by Abbajii, posted Jan 10, 2018
I woke up a little late for work this morning with a bit of a sore neck. I rushed around my house getting ready for my day and reached my work place in a tearing rush. I was grumpy and grouchy and just nodded to people without a smile as I rushed past my colleagues down the corridor of my office, until I met the regular security man near the lift to my office.

He gave me a warm smile, noticed me rubbing my neck, and quickly slipped behind me and proceeded to give me the most wonderful massage of my sore neck and shoulders. I was feeling very embarrassed but it felt so good! I just stood there enjoying the massage in spite of the crowd looking at both of us with amusement.

Before I could even turn around to say thank you he was busy with some other errand. The neck massage was so soothing and made my day. I can't decide if it was the warmth of his smile or the soothing massage that turned my day around, but the rest of the day was a breeze. What an amazing spontaneous act of kindness!
