THE SUDDEN URGE TO PLAY POKEMON HITS YOU LIKE A BAG OF BRICKS WHEN YOURE LEAST EXPECTING IT
Today happened something unexpected while I was going to school.
Since I go to my school by foot, I learnt the best shortcuts to get there and one of them is a REALLY slopped street.
I was going down that street, a bit late to school, when I passed by a woman limping, slowing going up the street.
She smiled at me and said “Good morning!”, to what I replied the same.
Then, without any of us stopping, she also said “I hope you’ll have a life full of bliss!”. At fist I was kinda confused about what she did exactly say, but when I realized, I could only smile back and say “Thank you” - to what she replied the same.
Then I continued my way to school and she continued her way up the street, but now I had a huge self-confidence boost and a smile on my face.
I have no idea why did that woman said such a thing to me, a random stranger, but it made me feel much better, like if all my problems had disappeared for a few minutes. Was this a random act of kindness? Was she happy that I replied with a “good morning” nowadays that we pass everyday by lots of people totally ignoring them? Was the fact that she was limping, but still going up all the street evidence that she may have had big challenges in her life, and still had enough willpower to keep going and share with others?
This was so strange, but at the same time, so heartening!
