Good Morning Everybody!
This week’s blog post centers around random acts of kindness.
A little backstory: I recently was in a Starbucks drive through and decided to pay for the person behind me. The person ordered a $3.05 coffee, nothing crazy. As I drive up to the stop light to head to work, the customer pulls up to me, tears in her eyes, thanking me for the coffee. She proceeded to explain to me she had just got let go, felt that the world was against her, and was gearing up for the long day of sending out resumes and looking for employment.
The Challenge: It is quite simple: the next time you are at a coffee shop or in a drive through, randomly pay for the customer behind you. That’s all and that’s it.
We ALL love coffee (well, most of us), so I can guarantee at least 85% of the people who read this blog will be placed in a situation within the next week where they have the ability to do this.
The point of that story is not to brag or boast about paying for somebody’s $3 coffee. It is to let everybody know how BIG of an impact such a SMALL act of kindness can have on somebody. We have no idea what others are going through or what they have gone through. I encourage you to try this within the next week and let me know how it goes! If you do not drink coffee, totally fine! You can still take care of somebody’s order at a drive through, book store, 7/11, etc.
These week’s post is short and simple, but can have a profound impact on those around you!
