Gratitude # 11 kind strangers
A friend was recently hit by a car whilst on holiday. Thankfully, she was not physically injured in the slightest. A stranger noticed the incident unfold and ran after the car. The car cowardly did not stop, but the stranger did. He could not speak English, but he tried his best to share details of the car and offer his kindness in the form of care even though he was probably on his way to work or school.
She was so grateful for his kindness and the kindness of her partner, which meant that her holiday remained sweet and joyful.
“Strangers can offer “light” in our moments of need – e.g a taxi driver can be the source of encouragement when we allow ourselves to be open towards experiencing good wherever we go”
So this Christmas – may I encourage you to be kind to yourself by believing in the good in yourself and others.
One life – live it grateful and kinder.
