Lots of £50 Notes…

fifty pounds

Giving Off Happy Vibes

I was at the Post Office this morning posting some Christmas cards and parcels to friends at home and abroad.  The person serving at the Post Office Counter, if I’m very honest, is usually almost always “grumpy”, I never really look forward to being served by him. However, this morning was different, today he was smiling, he was chirpy, he was definitely giving off “happy vibes”.  I smiled at him as I approached the counter and he happily took all my Christmas cards and parcels, weighed them etc.. and charged for them.  I was smiling at him the whole way through being served and saying “thank you”. He was really happy, I could tell, then he said “Can I help you with anything else?”, I said “Yes, I would like to take out £50 from my bank account but only if you have a £50 note”. He smiled and said that they wouldn’t normally have £50 notes but someone had come in earlier today and paid for something with lots of £50 notes.  He said therefore he could give me a £50 note and then, to my complete surprise, said he would go through all the £50 notes and give me the BEST, freshest, newest looking one.  I didn’t ask him to do that, he offered and I smiled very happily back at him and said “great, thank you so much”.

Blown Away

We had a short little chat about nice new money notes then he gave me my £50 note, smiled, said thank you and wished me a good day.  I was blown away, I would never have expected him to say this to me before now, I wished him the best day ever and I hopped happily out of the shop.

I felt so good after that interaction with this person, it just goes to show the difference we can make to another person’s life by just being pleasant, well mannered and giving off “happy vibes”.

Wherever you are in the world today remember the impact you have on others, so please make it a positive one, you just might make someone’s day.

Lots of love to you today and always, Clarabelle.

The Goodness of a Person

The Goodness of a Person

There is this quote on my Vision Wall which I absolutely love, here it is below:

The goodness of a person
The goodness of a person

“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
