The Kindness of Strangers

I was laid off from my job yesterday. It’s a bit scary but also quite a blessing as it really wasn’t a good fit for me. I am a very sensitive person and being in a toxic environment day to day was truly a strain on my happiness.

I have spent my day job hunting, studying for an exam, and took a lovely lunch hour yoga class. As I was leaving I decided to take a peek into the raw food cafe downstairs and was so pleasantly surprised. I had an amazing fresh smoothie with blue berries and chia seeds. As I was checking out, the woman employee apologized for not being able to speak to me sooner (as she was with a different client) because she wants to give me love!! She was smiling and laughing and it was just the sweetest thing. The kindness of strangers can really turn a whole day around.

Has a kind stranger ever made your day?
