Bundle Of Kindness

It was a day that I was dreading.

I woke up in the morning and since I was working at home for the day, made me wonder how on earth I would face the lean phase. The madness from a professional point of view was getting from bad to worse and honestly, I lacked courage to face the day. I was getting cribby.

I scheduled an interview with a diplomat early morning. Still remember, it started raining heavily the time I got down from the bus and reached there quite early. Luckily, I spotted a café and went there to while time away. I ordered coffee and when I got inside, I saw someone-the husband of a ‘friend’ whose interview I have done and a fab lady indeed-introduced myself to Mister of the Mrs. He happens to be a young politician and he congratulated me for the interview of his wife. We were meeting for the first time.

The coffee tray, along with a chocolate croissant landed on my table. Honestly, I was confused since I never ordered choco croissant and wondering whether it’s complimentary or a mistake was made. As the gentleman made his way out, he turned around and said that the croissant is on his part. I was surprised and elated at the same time at the kindness on his part. I mean, there was no need to and he went out of his way to make me happy.

This is kindness to me.

It’s only then that I remember him rushing to the counter and realized that he went to order a chocolate croissant for me. This is kindness. A small act or gesture can make your day beautiful at a time you facing the downside in life. Quite magically, the day turned out from bad to superb, ringing in positivity and I knew awesome things will happen in my life. The moral of the story: Kindness and gratitude go hand in hand for you can never know that someone is fighting a battle in life.

Never shy from doing a small act of kindness. I was touched.
