Love a Stranger

img_6882

When life is tight and stressed it’s easy to be rude to people who don’t matter to us, aka strangers. With the start of the school year I noticed a shift in energy in London which felt small and tight after the carefree openness of summer. When I notice that energy in the air, I like to take time to spread a little love – it not only makes me feel better, I like to think it makes the world a better place too.

A challenge for September:

 *

Spread a little joy and love of your own – smile at several strangers and see what happens …

 *

Hold the door for someone who isn’t expecting it.

 *

Say thank you to the person serving your coffee.

 *

Give someone your seat on the train.

 *

Ask your cashier how their day is going – make a connection, however brief, and give a genuine smile.

 *

How do you feel? What impact does it have on the rest of your day?

 *
