I was pleasantly surprised and grateful at an experience that I had at the organic farmers market this weekend. I ran out of cash because I had shopped more than I had planned for. Fresh produce and flowers always get me excited. I’m still a little kid at heart.
When I realized I was falling short of cash, a total stranger offered the remaining change to me for an artisan sweet treat. I was truly touched by her gesture of generosity and kindness.
We are living in polarized times. The language of hate and divisiveness seems to be the narrative everywhere around us. This random act of kindness was a breath of fresh air for me.
I walked away reminding myself that there is good present in the world despite everything going on around us. I resolved to continue making small steps to spread good around me.
What will your random act of kindness be? Notice how this makes you feel.
