kindness

i consider myself to be a kind person.

i’m not one of those people who walks around with her head down avoiding eye contact
instead of saying hello to the people who pass me by.
my mamma didn’t raise no rude girl!

don’t get me wrong…i can go from nice to supreme bitch in .2 seconds
but i need to be provoked.
ask people that know me…i’ll give anyone a chance, but if you mess it up…you are best to leave me alone.
i am greek and i have a temper…and i am not afraid to use it!

with that being said, there is a man who works in the same building i do.
every time i would walk by him i would say good morning…and i would be lucky if i got a grunt out of him.
he always looked so miserable.

after a few times of me saying good morning with almost zero response i thought to hell with you
and just stopped being the sweet lovely lady that i am
and so i just ignored him.

months pass by and we are outside at the same time…at the same place.

doesn’t this man come over with a big smile on his face and say….
“if you don’t mind me saying so, you look amazing!  i’ve been noticing that you have been losing a lot of weight  well not A LOT but you know what i mean”

i guess my face was in total shock, because he pipes in…”don’t take that the wrong way, i didn’t mean anything by it, i just want to tell you that you look great.”

this man made my day.  and you know what?  he always says good morning to me now…and he’s the first to say it!

Yesterday I was short 15 cents for lunch…and the gentleman behind me paid my difference.
i think i will go downstairs to the cafeteria and buy him a coffee.  my kitchen lady can let him know.

The lesson here?  Kindness always wins.

i’m a happy bee :)

 

no grumpy pants today!  i am wearing my kick ass fantastic pants!!
 
I am in such good spirits lately.  ever have those moments where everything just seems to flow?
where you wait and wait and wait and then suddenly one day out of the blue everything comes together?
this is where i am.
 
even with lack of sleep…and the white stuff falling from the sky…it feels like nothing can bring me down. 
I’ve been doing some kick ass writing lately, which makes me happy.
 
I’ve been smiling since yesterday, feeling pretty amazing.  I found out that 2 people have gone ahead and purchased Turbo Jam because of me.  One friend has borrowed my beginner disc and is going to purchase it soon.
i know, doesn’t sound that big to you does it?
well…it’s huge for me.
 
I know I am a big promotor of Turbo Jam…it works for me.  I don’t expect it to be everyone’s “thing”…but i love it (as you must know by now!)
 
But it’s not the Turbo Jam per say that has me grinning.  It is the fact that i was told that i inspire people.
who woulda thunk????
I have inspired people to get off the couch and get healthy. 
I am blown away!
Now, these are people who have told me they went ahead and bought it.  Who knows if my blog has reached anyone else…people i don’t even know…i wonder if anyone is out there inspired to make changes.
i know there is one beautiful woman who reads my blog…that i have never met…who went ahead and purchased the dvd…and i was sooo very proud!!!  (everyone say hi to jm!)
 
It means something to me…to know that all of my hard work is being noticed, is being rewarded by getting other people healthier, more active.
 
I never thought i’d be that person.  you know…the one who works out and eats healthy and loves it….
and then get told i inspire.
 
life is funny.
 
So since i am in a happy mood…and have a kick ass weekend planned…let me leave you with a happy kick ass song.
this has been on repeat in my car for 2 days.  I generally don’t even like her….but i love this song  clickety click here
 
Happy Friday kids!!
