Welcome back to Human Kindness! If you haven’t already, please check out Human Kindness: Introduction for the background to this blog series! These stories are NOT all my own, they have been submitted to me for the purpose of this series and are a collection from some of the kindest people I know or who have contacted me to share their story.
I am ALWAYS on the lookout for kindness stories, so please do get in touch if you have one, there is a chance for you to submit yours at the end of this post (and I will always keep them anonymous). As always, if you’d like to receive these stories directly to your inbox every Monday morning, sign up to the mailing list at the end of this post.
We know by now that I LOVE simple but beautiful acts of kindness, and this week’s short but sweet story is one of those!
“I work as a beautician and I love working to make my clients feel beautiful. Because I work with the same clients, I build a rapport with them and look forward to seeing them every time they come in and catching up with their lives.
A little while ago, I was in a really dark place and dealing with a lot of stuff in my personal life, and I must have mentioned it to this one particular client. The next time I saw her, she came into my work and surprised me with a book and my favourite Chanel perfume. She knew the book would help me and she knew this perfume was my favourite, and she didn’t want it anymore so gave it to me.
I thought it was so thoughtful and kind of her to do, it really lifted my spirits and I’ve never forgotten it.”
