There are good people out there

Posted By on Mon, Mar 18, 2019 at 6:22 PM

I moved to a seat beside you at the bar to watch the final match of a rugby game on a Saturday afternoon. As time passed and we had a few brief exchanges about the game, you shared a pic of your healing dog Luna and the experiences you have together. You also shared that you were treating the guy beside you to a Mooseheads game as he was a good person that you employ. You commented about having a good life and giving back. "Give and you shall receive," was my comment back.

We did not even share our names yet you shared a bit of yourself so openly with me. It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face and my hope in writing this is that the universe will share this with you...there are GOOD PEOPLE out there and you are one of them, kind sir!

I am truly grateful for that brief exchange as it resonated with my heart and soul. To everyone else reading this: Just be open in the moment as you never know the story a stranger beside you may share and the positive impact that it can have. Share a story, make a difference each day, give back, smile.
—Be the change
