While I wanted to make a series of posts the last days about me and little things I do or cannot do, it seemed a bit too much. Who am I to reveal stuff about myself and pretend other people care about it? But reading Joy's post gave me a good idea. If these little things are positive and good, than why not share them? I mean good things never did someone bad, right? Acts of kindness and generosity must happen more and more in this world of individualism and selfishness. I will do my best to write about small true things that I remember doing or willing to do like this first one below. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy making others happy and smiley.
[ This afternoon it was raining in my city. We were driving to get a coffee like always. My man had just bought two ice creams for us. As soon as I started enjoying mine, we passed by a guy riding his loaded bicycle, with his head uncovered and probably very wet. I said "Let's give him my ice cream!". But it was too late, we left him behind and if we had slowed down and try to talk to him he wouldn't have stopped (dark and rainy - duh!). I don't know why I felt like that (beside that I am a good person hahaha), all was very sudden and we did not do it eventually. But I wish we did it and he accepted my unwrapped and licked ice cream. You still get my point, I hope. The need to make a small gesture of happiness to a total stranger was enough to make me feel good. Maybe he doesn't like ice creams or he has a sore throat, but who knows, he might have smiled to us and that would mean everything I needed for today. ]
Do you ever feel the urge to help strangers, or surprise them in a way or another? Do you think it is meaningless while people have so many problems we can't solve for them, or is it enough because it fills us with kindness?
