I was in a very bad mood. Everything seemed to be going against me. I haven’t been feeling well, and I was exhausted, so I slept in and went to school late. Almost as soon as I got up my mom and I got into a fight, I didn’t get to eat breakfast, or have time to look good, so I ran out the door. When I got to class I was in a bad mood still, and to make it worse one of my teachers yelled at me for something I didn’t do. I was in one of those “everyone-is-annoying-go-away-before-I-punch-you-in-the-face” kind of moods. I walked down the hallway alone, and was stopped by a friend who I hadn’t talked to much. I was not in the mood to talk, so I tried to walk away. Then my friend said; “Ally, you are seriously so beautiful. Even in sweatpants, no makeup and hair in a messy bun. You’re just beautiful inside and out, I want you to know that.” and walked away. I stood for a minute, kind of shocked. I smiled. My bad mood lifted. Then I started to think.
Someone just said ONE nice thing to me, and changed my ENTIRE day. For the rest of the day I wasn’t as upset. Just ONE act of kindness can help a lot. A smile, a wave, a kind word, holding a door open, saving someone a seat – it may not seem like much. But if you just do like, maybe one or two nice things a day, it will really end up making an impact. You can help change a person’s whole day around with a simple action.
