Yesterday morning I was coming back from my morning run and I’ve meet a family coming out from the condo. There was a kid with his mom, so I stepped on the side and let them get out first. The kid stepped out and fell on the stairs so I have helped him to get up and asked him if his ok as his mom was too busy with her bicycle. He was ok, he only slipped without hurting himself. For my surprise his mom said nothing to me not even thank you because I helped his son. Ok, never mind Ribana, she is too busy or worried for her son. So I have smiled to her, showing her that people can be kind. And I did well smiling at her, because further back it was her husband with the other kid and he looked at me, smiling back and said the magic word “thank you”.
It is not that I expect nothing in change when doing good or being kind, it is just sad that people are too busy to notice and return your kindness. I think if they’ll pay more attention at these small gestures of kindness they’ll be more happy and they’ll learn to be kind too.
Always be kind even when the others are not. Your day will be much brighter 🙂
Have a wonderful week!
