"people can surprise you. you get used to thinking of them one way, stuck in their roles,
they are what they are. and then they do something that shows you there's all this depth
and dimension that you never knew existed." --mitchell, modern family
almost every morning, i pick up breakfast at the tim's by my work building. and almost every morning, i see this regular customer. he usually just sits there and enjoy his hearty breakfast. he didn't look grand nor friendly. on monday morning, a homeless (i assume he is coz he looked the part) person came in. out of nowhere, mister regular customer walks up to him with a bag of food and a big cup of coffee. the look on the homeless face was priceless. that is something you don't see everyday. let alone on a monday.
i was taken aback by what i saw. then it got me thinking......have i done enough for somebody else? how many times have i shunned the oppotunity to help a stranger? how many random acts of kindness am i willing to give for the rest of my life? have i been very nice to people? shown pure kindness and love to my family? accepted my friends for who they are? am i good enough? i don't know. there's a lot to learn from people. people who are different from what i know i am.
i need to do something radical. something way out of my comfort zone. something i think is beyond me.
must. start. planning.
