Small Acts of Kindness That Make a Difference

Waking up on Pacific time means that at 4 am this girl is wide awake.  The benefit is time to blog.  I was sitting here reflecting on a conversation I had last night with some friends.  We all travel quite a bit and one mentioned that he makes a point to ask the airport ticket agents, gate agents, flight attendants, bartenders and servers how they are doing.  This isn’t just a quick meaningless interaction either.  It’s a sincere question and he says it elicits the most surprising results.  People are always excited to tell him and it seems to make their day.

It seems like such a small gesture to ask, sincerely, how someone’s day is going.  Many of these professionals fade into the background of our travel days….like so many other people we come into contact with each day.  I wonder what the result would be if each of us spent today REALLY talking to the people that take care of us all day.

Today is the day to find out.  Let me know in the comments if you have good results or if it made a difference.  Happy Wednesday!
