The people I am close to have been overwhelmingly supportive and I am truly grateful for this.
So why then does the kindness of strangers feel so powerful?
A couple of days ago I noticed that one of the blogs I follow had a new post- the title was ‘For Erin’ We’ve already covered the fact that my name is quite unusual- not so much recently- Erin has become a lot more popular- people clearly took a while to catch on to the brilliance of the name! (Or they just didn’t watch The Waltons like my mum?) So I immediately wondered if I was the ‘
Erin’ was me. Could I be the Erin? It turned out I was…
My smile was massive! Not to knock the kindness of those I know- don’t know what I’d have done without them, but lets be honest they’ve got a vested interest in me getting better and being happy! My future is their future! Our lives are entwined! But I’ve realised how amazingly powerful the kindness of strangers can be.
So thank you findit13 you’ve inspired me to do something thoughtful for a stranger today. Anyone fancy joining me in the quest to make a stranger smile massively?
