I always love to get feedback from my blog readers about mindful moments in their day. This one came from a loyal reader, Charlotte, yesterday!
I love this story, it totally proves that kindness to others is the way to happiness.
Charlotte was in Wilkinson’s. She was in a bit of a hurry and on a mission to find weedkiller. An elderly lady was on the same isle as Charlotte and each time she moved they got in each other’s way. They were both confused by the huge selection of products on offer and their frustration was rising.
The lady asked for Charlotte’s advice about weedkillers for her lawn but unable to help she made her apologies and ran for the till. Right at the other end of the shop, on the way to the till, Charlotte came came across just the product that the lady needed. This was the moment of dilemma…
Get on with her day or help the lady!?
Well, as all Revitalise Days blog readers would know the right answer was to go back and give the lady the weedkiller she needed. That is exactly what Charlotte did. Well done Charlotte!
The report came back that the effort was well worth it. The lady was so, so, grateful that she instantly knew she had done the right thing. She was left with that warm glow that only a kind gesture can create!
So be inspired by this tale of an everyday event that really can make your day special. These opportunities present themselves far more often than you would imagine and all you need to do is spot them and then make the right choice.
Thinking about others and looking for opportunities to help really does take your mind off your own worries. Give it a go today and see who you can help.
