The Kindness of Strangers

Recently, as a guest on Stevie Mack’s radio show I  briefly spoke about being grateful & “the kindness of strangers.” I started to reminisce  re a number of years ago when I was experiencing extreme emotional and physical challenges. ( read more about that http://www.balanceandpower.com/meeteileen.php).  I didn’t know about EFT then- I surely would’ve helped myself more and faster.  I recall what amazed me was that when I was doing  simple errands people often “bent over backwards” – a gas station attendant, for instance, and did extra little things to help. And there were a few instances when much bigger kindnesses were turned in my direction.  I would journal about them, and express gratitude.  In hindsight, I’m also grateful that I was “open” to receive what was being given- and realize that perhaps  I was given what I asking for- even if I had not verbalized it.  We all need to reach out more and to be open, receptive and grateful.  On a scale of 1-10( 10 being highest), how do you rate :

  • Kindness to strangers- how often to you notice yourself reaching out to a stranger?
  • Being grateful
  • Expressing gratitude
  • Being open to kindnesses directed at you
