Kindness of Strangers

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I went for a nice long bike ride today and I was huffing my big butt up a hill, I was a bit tired, when I finally got to the light at the top of the hill. A woman in her car rolled down her window and said good work and that she was proud of me for getting out there! I thanked her, but as I rode on I felt rejuvenated. I don't think this woman realized how much her comment meant to me, I was feeling tired and worn out, but her comment made me feel less self conscious about being an overweight woman riding her bike. It amazes me how much a comment from a stranger can affect your mood.

    That is totally awesome!! I find when strangers compliment in anyway, that is such a great feeling because....they aren't a friend or someone you know so it is just so genuine! emoticon emoticon
