The World Smiles With You

| Friendly | September 14, 2014

(I am walking up the steps from the subway station to catch a bus home from university, and notice a man busking at the top of the stairs. No one is paying attention to him, and I feel bad, but I don’t have any cash on me, so I make sure to smile at him as I walk past.)

Performer: “Hey. Wait!”

Me: “Sorry, me?”

Performer: “Yeah, you! You smiled at me. God bless you!”

Me: “Oh, you’re welcome!”

(He seemed absolutely delighted, and it made me happy as well to get a reminder of how easy it is to make someone’s day a bit better.)
