I believe in the goodness of people. Even as the craziness of the world continues to unfold, my belief in people never wavers. I believe love wins. I not only believe that 99% of humans are capable of unbelievably kind acts, I believe that deep down inside they want to perform these kind acts every single day. Hell, I believe they are.
Every day I am a witness to these kind acts but I am usually so focused on my next task/event/thought that they don’t even register. I hope to change that. I hope to ‘catch’ good deeds every day. I already know of so many I want to share with you, but for this first day, I am going to keep it simple because a kind act does not have to take a lot of time, cost any money or be any sort of sacrifice on our part.
Someone blessed me. I sneezed (quite embarassingly loud too, I might add) at the gas station and I was actually startled to hear a quite loud, “Bless you”. After I got over my fright and embarrassment, a smile crept up on my face as I thanked this faceless stranger. Simple. Kind. Loving.
I can’t wait to see who else I ‘catch’.
