The Goodness of a Person
There is this quote on my Vision Wall which I absolutely love, here it is below:
“The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person ‘spreads in all direction’. (Chanakya Philospher)
Sharing the Story
I am currently training to become a Mental Health First Aider and at the start of the training yesterday morning, each attendee was asked to select an object from their bag and explain to the whole group why it was interesting or important to you. I brought out a little keyring that was given to me a few weeks ago – let me share the story about it…..
A Lovely Gesture
A client and good friend of mine were having lunch in the newly opened Zizzi’s Restaurant, Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow City Centre. After our main meal we ordered deserts which took a very long time to arrive. The waitress very kindly and sincerely apologised to us for the long delay and told us that there would be no charge for the deserts – we thought that’s a lovely gesture. About 10 minutes later the Manager of the Restaurant came up to our table and he handed my friend and I a little keyring each. He apologised again for the delay with the deserts and said that the keyring he had given us would give us free deserts for LIFE when buying a main meal in the restaurant anytime in the future. We thought WOW, now that seriously is a lovely LOVELY gesture and we truly thanked him for this, we certainly did not expect this kindness!!
The goodness of this person has now indeed spread, as I continue to share this story of kindness with others. If this situation was handled in the opposite way of this, it could have been a whole different story. The power of kindness is very empowering. Have you ever had a kind experience like this? If so, please share it in the comments section below.
May your kindness abundantly flow from your heart today. Clarabelle
