There is no faster way to turn your day around than to have a complete stranger do something nice for you. Think about the last time someone you didn't know said they liked your scarf or shoes - you walked a little taller, didn't you? Intern Pam was on a Midnight Train to Georgia (yes, really) a couple of weeks ago and she overheard the woman in front of her saying that a stranger whose table she was sat in the dining car had a nice conversation with her and then insisted on buying her dinner! Moments like this are inspiring to the recipient of the act, but also to those within ear shot, too. Many of you have likely seen the movie Pay It Forward, or perhaps the commercials
for one insurance company that depict strangers observing kind acts and then performing their own. This is not an unrealistic concept at all - and it can start with you! Buy the person behind you in line their herbal tea, or hold the door open for the person behind you. Carry someone's extra bag when their hands are full or cover the next person's toll payment on the 400. There are so many simple ways to put a little bit of positive energy out there, and bring a smile to someone's face.
