Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. Today, I want to take a moment to say thank you to those perfect strangers who came to my aid who after I passed out at the metro station with a severe migraine headache this past week.
Last Wednesday, I was at the metro station and was having a severe migraine headache. I was on my way to the ED after being told my Neurologist to go to the ED. I was on my way when my headache to a turn for the worst and I passed out from the severe pain. Thanks to some and wonderful strangers who helped my family member help me sit me down. Call for help. I was very fortunate to have a nurse and a resident among these strangers who sat until the paramedics arrived and one of the providers even offered to ride with me to the ED.
I could not have been more great more. Thank you from the bottom from my heart. I may not have been able to say it at the time because of my condition, but I cannot tell how much I really appreciate your kindness. I cannot tell you this enough. You have a busy life, you did not have to stop to help me but you did from the kindness of your heart. You are my hero. Thank you so much from my bottom of my heart! As long as we have kind people like you in this world, I know we will be okay. I see people rising up against injustice every single day and this, I myself have been a recipient of just kindness, and I will remember and appreciate it forever.
Hi there my lovelies! Hope you all are having a good Sunday. Today, I want to spread happy thoughts. As I am still in the voyage to find my positive self, while at the same time fighting my mind and soul, I am taking the step to finally persevere. However, while I am going through my journeys of ups and some horrible downs, I cannot stop myself from thinking of other wonderful people out there (some of whom you and I may know) who are going through even harder times than me. Hence, my beautiful readers, let us take a moment to send happy and positive thoughts to everyone who may be going through a hard time right now.
Positive thoughts are not enough; when you go out and meet a stranger please have a smile on your face and show a little empathy and kindness towards that person. My beautiful readers, I always believe that smile and kindness are always contagious. When you perform an act of kindness it warms up your heart and it does the same for those who are witnessing the act. Watching someone perform an act of kindness, creates an act of kindness creates a warm fuzzy feeling in our heart. That fuzzy feeling is known as moral elevation. According to Thomas Jefferson, “When any … act of charity or of gratitude, for instance, is presented either to our sight or imagination, we are deeply impressed with its beauty and feel a strong desire in ourselves of doing charitable and grateful acts also”. Even Huffington Post did an article looking at the science behind the contagiousness of kindness.
My beautiful readers, take your time to show kindness and let the kindness spread. Let us take the time to spread happy thoughts to everyone, and let us take time show a little compassion. It does not take the time to say “hi and thank you” with a big smile on your face. The act may be small but its impact is enormous. After all, as John Holmes said, “there is no better exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up”. I took a small step by just holding the hold for someone at the store and smiling and saying thank you for their hard work to the staff member at the mall. The sparkles in their eyes I saw in return is all worth it. I cannot wait to continue my part to spread positivity and kindness. We need it now more than ever. What act of kindness have you witnessed lately? How did it make you feel?
