In my last post I shared with you the little story from my childhood and my dad's staunch belief that kindness and sweet words can conquer all! You can make someone's day a little better, brighter and happier by just being kind! What you get in return is a better world! Really, it sounds so ridiculously incredible, but one act of kindness can lift the spirits of hundreds and can spread cheer! In July 2009, when we all were struggling with a sliding economy, fear of deep recession and an overall uncertainty, one morning in a small coffee shop drive-through in Missouri, a customer paid for her coffee and decided to pay for the coffee for the next customer! When the next customer was told that their coffee was already paid by the customer before them, they decided to pass it along to the next customer who'd come to the drive through window! In that week more than 1,000 customers followed her example by accepting drinks paid for by the person in front of them and paying it forward! Local TV channel reported that customers even started a fund and raised $160 to continue the pay-it-forward scheme in case someone breaks the chain! Now, the cost of coffee was not much, but the act of little kindness by a woman inspired thousands of others to 'help' someone they didn't even know! I can imagine a little girl or boy sitting in the back seat and getting inspired to do good, to serve a cause greater than oneself just by witnessing this little act! That is the power of kindness - it doesn't require grand gestures, huge amount of money or a lot of time - all it takes is your good intentions and a generous heart, but it can impact our world and future generations in unimaginable ways!
Now for today's outfit, I am wearing what I'd like to wear in the workplace if and when I decide to work outside the home! Simple, polished and with a little bling!
