We're All In This Together

The other day I was waiting for the light to change in downtown San Francisco and there was a homeless guy who was walking around with his sign and he went from car to car (I was the 3rd one in). The cars reacted as they usually do, just closing the windows and ignoring him, one car moved up, you know the drill. As he came to my car, I looked him in the eye and I gave him a HUGE smile, I said I’m sorry I can’t give you money and he just stood there smiling at me. There was probably a 10 second pause before the light turned and he could have gone to some other cars, but he just stood there smiling. I was smiling and then as it changed, he stood there, smiling and then he gave me a wave and I waved back. There was something so pivotal in that moment. I literally teared up as I drove away and it hit me so hard!
The more we treat everyone like humans and give them a simple act of kindness from the heart, the better we will be as people!
Dyer also says, someone that gives and receives and even watches that act of kindness’ vibration will rise… It’s just incredible stuff!!
Thanks for sharing.
