 Translation of the journaling:
Last week I read tis post on Anna's blog. She told about a random act of kindness she did for a complete unknown person she met while shopping...
This made me think (hey, you wouldn't have thought I could do that :) )...and to be honest, too often I am on the "wrong" end of gift (or anything else good) giving side. Of course, this is great for me...but somehow it isn't right at the same time. So I decided to achieve a better balance...
Well, while I was on my way home this week in the subway I browsed through my brand new quilt mag, a woman approached me and told me that she also quilted (and that's pretty remarkable because quilting isn't so popular here). We talked a bit while sitting in the subway and then I had a little light bulb moment. The end of the story: the perplexed woman was the new owner of a new quilting mag and I was the new owner of good feelings :) which made the rest of my way home through the snow a light one.
And despite the horror of (grocery) shopping in December I really try to be extra-nice to the employees and not to let them feel how stressed I am. You can't believe how easily you'll rewarded with a smile and extra-friendly service. It's really worth a try.
What helps a lot: I am constantly humming songs - no, not aloud, I am not THAT weird...but in my mental shower - it's so relaxing.
For example, when I had to wait more than half an hour at the post office I just hummed some happy songs in my mind and so it wasn't bad at all...I couldn't have changed it with a bad mood!.
So, it's the attitude that matters! :)

Hope you all have a good time,

P.S. I didn't tell this to "brag" or something like that...I just wanted to document & share...


  1. was für ein schöner post!! und wie nett von dir :-) thanks for sharing,

  2. I love your story...I bet the woman really, really appreciated the quilting magazine! Have a wonderful week before Christmas!

  3. Random acts of kindness always feel like you're giving your soul a big hug. I also hum to myself, I don't think anyone can hear me at least I hope not!

  4. What a beautiful story. I am so glad that you shared it. It gave me goose bumps. So, you see, since it lifted my spirits also, it's a gift that keeps on giving!
