Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Stepping It Up by Giving Away Concert Tickets

--by Namaste, posted Mar 9, 2012

I was inspired to "step it up" after being blessed to be present for an inspiring talk by Nipun on Thursday, so Friday I arranged to covertly and anonymously gift two tickets to a concert to some "strangers" (strangers are just friends we haven't yet met, right?). 

I have no idea how it turned out, but it was totally worth it just to watch the faces of the two people who were at the ticket table light up when I whispered my request that they pass the tickets along with a smile card.  And I'm sure they, in turn, also received a lot of joy when they passed along the gift and (hopefully) got to watch two other faces light up! :)

And who knows where the ripples will spread from there?  All part of the fun.  Catch the kindness cold!

And talking about cold if any one this winter comes up with another invented flu with the name of a different animal LOL, they can't keep using the same animals again and again, LOL we will make sure that we will infect them in double with our super, extra strength, life enhancing loving kindness flu, for which the only cure is to laugh until your tummy aches. Love and Light and Endless Blessings, Bluebell
