It was rough dragging myself from bed this morning to get to my 9 am lecture. With last night being halloween, my friends and I decided to celebrate along with the majority of my fellow community members. So needless to say I was feeling slightly under the weather this morning and really in need of a coffee.
As I was waiting in the familiar line of Tim Hortons, the young man in front of my friend and I, jumped into our conversation regarding the previous nights activities. As he got to the counter he asked us what we wanted. As he paid for our coffees, we thanked him, and he respond, ” Today is a good day to do these kinds of things…” he kindly smiled, turned and left.
This simple five minute encounter with a complete stranger made my day. Its funny how something as simple as paying for my $1.60 coffee and engaging in small talk can change the mood of my entire day. I will definitely be passing on this simple act of kindness. Every day is a good day to show kindness to other people. Even if it is as simple as buying someones coffee.
So spread the kindness, what will you do to make someones day?
