so last night i'm on the bus coming home. i have a seat which doesn't always happen at rush hour. i'm tired, a little nauseous (i know i spelled that wrong) and i want to go home. a little old lady comes on. she's looking at me and i think "i should give her my seat." but i don't feel well and i have high heels on that i'm not so steady in. i think "that girl in front of me is younger than me, she should give her her seat" and then i caught myself. i thought "well, why wait for her to do it? you're young, your able. if you want something to happen just do it yourself." so i got up and gave the lady my seat and she thanked me profusely. right after the girl i was thinking should give up her seat did give it up to someone else and then someone else 2 seats down gave his seat to another person. it was so wonderful! you could just see by my one action how it influenced other people to act. had i not gotten up i am sure the other two would not have as well. it made me realize just how easy it is to spread goodness and change. all it takes is one little action and others will see it and be tempted to act themselves. the little old lady was so cute too. she was getting off and there were a ton of people between us and the door. and she was starting to get up and worried she would not be able to get out. i told her not to worry about it. she asked if i was getting off at her stop. i said no but i would be happy to walk her out if she liked. and she said "oh, you're going to push people aside to make sure i get out?" and i smiled at her and we giggled. so when her stop came i loudly said excuse me and made a path through so she could get out and got off with her. she was so sweet! the whole thing just made my night. just wanted to share.
