Today I managed to do something that made me feel good. I had a £10 voucher left from a Christmas bonus I got this year.
Whilst I was shopping for some food, because I have been held up in my flat due to illness I met someone who I noticed that the person would not be classed as a “typical” person. I noticed that they seemed to have issues with inappropriate conversation. Instead of shooing her away I continued to talk to her and finished my shopping with her.
After I finished shopping I was able to talk to her some more and she told me she was having a hard time. I went into my purse and pulled out the voucher and asked her if she shopped at Iceland. She said that she did so I gave it to her. I don’t really use Iceland very much so the voucher was sitting in my purse grabbing dust.
I am only telling you this because doing good does not have to be something that you have to kill yourself over. I did good today by showing kindness to a stranger who I identified with. All it cost me was a voucher i was not going to use.
When you do something nice for people then you will get good vibes back in your direction. When you do good it feels goods and you are sharing goodness with the world. In a world of uncertainty, pain and suffering we should all do our part to bring a little joy into the world.
Through the support I got when I had a support worker and people I work with I have managed to learn certain things which are inappropriate to talk about to a stranger and this is how I notice it sometimes in others.
So do what you can to make your life good and bring what joy you can in to the world and we will be the light in the troubled times.
