December Kindness – Day 2

It’s time to spread some more love and kindness in the world.

How did you get on with your first day of December Kindness yesterday?

I loved all the photos and messages I received about the notes you’d left in public places. Thank you!

Today, 2nd December (how did that happen?!), is the second day of kindness in the run up to Christmas and I want to share my favourite FREE random act of kindness.

Today, whenever you are served by someone (in a shop, cafe, restaurant, wherever) look them in the eye and say ‘thank you’ and mean it.

I’ve worked in my fair share of shops, restaurants and cafes (my parents used to own a shop and cafe) and I know that while so many people say thank you, it is often while looking at their wallet or purse while they count out money or dig around for the right bank card, or, worse still, it is thrown over their shoulder as they walk away from the till.

But when someone looks you in the eye, sees you as a person and says thank you …wow, you really notice it.

So be that person!

You will be amazed by the response – which is usually surprise quickly followed by gratitude.

Also, if you need any extra motivation…serving staff are working extra hard in December, there are more staff parties, more drunk people, more people desperately trying to buy presents people neither want nor need (stop that!) …and don’t even get me started on some people’s behaviour during Boxing Day sales …I once had to stop two women fighting over a pair of pants. Pants!!!

So today, make eye contact, express your gratitude and spread some kindness.

Wishing you all a fabulous Monday!

With love, gratitude and kindness today and always Fi xx
