For some reason trying to figure out a subject line for tonight’s post made me sing “so hot…want to touch the hiney” from Billy Madison. I’m not entirely sure why….but being tired will do that to you.
I’m knackered. Today was a 13 hour day (or 14 maybe?) doing some stuff for work. Don’t feel sympathy for me, I overcommitted myself. At least the end is in sight, and this time next week I’ll be past the first phase of this super crazy exciting project. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a few years now and I’m so thrilled to see it doing as well as it has been.
So it’s just a quick post from me tonight before I fall asleep on the couch.
Today, I had a super magical experience.
I forgot to make my coffee at home that I normally take into the office a thermos, so decided to buy some coffee on my way in. When I pulled up to the window at the drive-thru the employee informed me that the car in front of me had paid for my coffee! I was so shocked and appreciative that I immediately offered to pay it forward and pay for the car behind me.
What the person in front of me didn’t realise is that literally minutes before I had mentioned to a couple of my friends how I felt my mood that day was dipping into a negative grumpy mood and that I just needed to snap out of it. The random act of kindness could not have been timed any better!
I posted about it on my personal facebook page as well as the local community page, saying that if the person was out there that thank you for their generosity, and how much I appreciated it.
It kinda makes me want to pay for someone else’s coffee on the odd occasion. Doing something nice made me feel so good, and I can only hope it will have the same impact on the recipient as it did for me today!
Challenge for all of you too – complete one random act of kindness this week, and report in on how it went!
