Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Bits And Bobs.

Yesterday I managed to practice a few acts of kindness.
1) Was friendly to everybody at the hotel breakfast table and reception by saying good morning and smiling at them. Got beautiful smiles from most of them in return, especially from a young foreign girl who was playing with her food and had hardly eaten anything. (Maybe worried about her weight? But she was just lovely as she is!) We joked about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. 🌞

2) Noticed a young man had tears in his eyes and asked if he was OK. He said he was just about to start work. I had the impression he was having a bit of a bad day and maybe even did not like his employer or the working conditions? Told him to do his very best at work on that shift, then go home and think carefully about what will make him happy. Gave him my last laminated lucky clover and wished him good luck. Oh yes and I asked him if he would be kind enough to walk me to my hotel door. I told him I occasionally get bouts of anxiety and he sympathised and obliged. 💗
3) Got out of my shell (Hermit girl me. Lol!) and agreed to go out for a meal with four lovely ladies from my hotel. Had so much fun and enjoyed the girly banter. Left with four new friends and a spring in my step. Laughter is so important! Friendship too! 😄
