We didn’t want to profit from my diagnosis and the idea of sharing the love and kindness given to us filled me with so much more happiness than spending it on something ever could.
Let me tell you about it…
I ventured out of the house on my own for the first time since my operation. First time driving and everything! Whoop whoop!
I went and got my nails done because I wanted a pick me up and to feel a bit more ‘me’ – look how sparkly they are!
Feeling completely liberated by the notion of being out and about doing normal stuff I phoned my husband and asked if he wanted to meet for lunch in town during his work break. Something we’ve not done for ages(!) and a nice change from ‘picnics’ in the hospital!
We went to a local burger place who amazingly do gluten free. It was lovely sitting there doing normal couple stuff, not talking about cancer and treatment or how I’m feeling – that shit gets old and boring pretty quick when you live with it every day.
I became aware of two ladies sitting near us. They had so much joy and laughter. Everyone else in the place was eating relatively quietly, not really talking much to the person they were with and sometime just looking at their phone instead (Why do people do that?! It’s so annoying!)
But these two ladies were really happy and enjoying life and bouncing off of each other in good spirits and I thought to myself ‘you know what, why not make there day even better’.
So I put £20 in an envelope and wrote ‘Random Act of Kindness’ on it and as we were leaving I went to their table, excused myself and gave them the enevelop. Then I left.
And you know what?
It was the most amazing feeling ever! I have never had such instant gratification and pleasure from passing over £20 before. Ever!
Joy really is found in giving.
It’s made me buzz with happiness.
I can’t wait to share more love in this way.
Love and light, Fi xxx
