You just never know, Katherine, who in the crowd, standing beside you in line or passing you in the street, might be raised in spirit, or even lifted from despair, by the kindness in your glance or the comfort of your smile.I enjoy reading my daily notes from The Universe, which you can receive as well by signing up for free on TUT. Some notes make more sense to me than others, but all messages are welcome. This note reminded me of a time when I was "down in the dumps".
When I first moved to San Diego (last year) my eyes were filled with sunshine and my heart with hope. I had little bouts of loneliness and doubt, but kept on going. The hardest period for me here was from March to the beginning of May. I was having a hard time finding a job, the funds were running low, and I didn't have a stable home. I was living in fear and despair. I cried almost every day, uncertain of whether or not I would make it out here. One day I felt like I had hit rock bottom. I was in a constant state of anxiety and went for a walk to clear my head. I sat outside of a coffee shop and called one of my best friends to vent. I was sobbing loudly and I guess some people walking by noticed, but I didn't notice them. A few minutes into my crying session, this lovely young woman quickly stopped in front of me and gave me flowers, then walked away. I only caught a brief glimpse of her; smiling back at me as she walked away. At that point I felt like she was an Angel sent to comfort me.
Sometimes I get caught up with wanting to do BIG things for the people I love, to show them how much I care. Buying them big gifts, giving them money; I need something TANGIBLE to give to them. I think it's so easy for all of us to get caught up with showing our love through objects. Sometimes all it takes is to check up on someone and ask "How are you doing? I miss you". And what about showing love to people we don't know? I don't know what motivated my Earth Angel to give me flowers that day, but I'll ever forget the gesture. What if all it takes is a smile? A concerned glanced? I think in order to truly be present and live in the moment we have to be aware of our surroundings and the people in it. We have to truly treat people how we want to be treated in order to create miracle moments in their lives, which can be achieved through something as simple as daisies.
Please share in the comments below any miracle moments you may have caused for someone, or if you've ever had a similar experience?
