It was the smallest of things.
After waiting for the bus yesterday, I stood back and let a couple of people on before me who’d arrived at the stop after I did.
It really was nothing.
But both smiled and said thank you, which made me feel good. A reminder that practising small random acts of kindness often benefits both receiver and giver.
Keep this in mind as you go about things today. OK, I know people won’t always react. But even if they don’t, you’ll know you did the right thing – and even just this can feel gently positive.
It doesn’t have to be much.
