You never know who needs a little bit of kindness ❤ . I recently got a Facbook message from someone I was friends with my freshman year of college (8 years ago!). He was a Norwegian exchange student, and my roommate and I got to be great friends with him and his roommate. We’d hang out, do homework, play video games, whatever – our Norwegians were the best. They lived on a floor full of football players, and it always seemed like something just wasnt “clicking” for them. So, for his bday that year, I took one of them a microwavable mini cake, a bday card, and his favorite candy. Just a small bday gift from one friend to another. He never said anything about it, but I knew he got it. Oddly enough, we lost touch after that year, and I thought he’d become one of those college FB friends who just vanishes. But then… . His message to me a few weeks ago: “Hey Sam, I know it’s been awhile since we talked but I was thinking about college the other day and you came up, and I realized I never thanked you for the birthday cake. That was the sweetest thing anyone did for me that year, and I didnt treat you the way you shouldve after that. I’m really sorry. That meant so much to me and I didnt know what to do, so I wanted to say thank you now. Hope all is well” . 😯 . Such a simple message, but guys that touched my heart. You never realize the impact you can have on people. Maybe it takes 8 years. Maybe it never comes to the surface. I’ve had so many moments in my life where things weren’t going right, and one person reached out at exactly the right time and made everything 1000% better. Big and small frustrations, heartbreak, the loss of a loved one…one small act of kindness can truly change your day, leaving an impact on your life. . @whitsonlee @kassie.lynn.w @johneby__3 @breecamaret @haileyvonwald @plantycolumbus @matt_h3s @edamurray @ina.traveller @karinggerman . You never know what one message, one act of kindness, one word of positivity can do. ❤ . . . #Positivity #smallactsofkindness #thankful #smile #bekind #kindness #love #life #PositiveVibes #positive #friendship #bestlife #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #impact #writersofinstagram #momentsofimpact
