Random Act of Kindness


An anonymous reader of this blog and my previous blog has does something very nice for me. This reader did this through my Local Bike Shop. I believe this happened over a month ago. I only found out about it yesterday from the shop owner when I stopped by the shop. I wanted to acknowledge this person and let them know how moved I was by their act of kindness. Writing a blog doesn’t always have the greatest feedback to help make a person aware if they are touching other people or not. As an introvert, I always saw my blogs as my way of doing bicycling advocacy. It’s very difficult for me to reach people in person, or lobby public officials or attend community meetings. So I do my advocacy on my blog by using it to set an example of what the possibilities are for cycling in a city like Duluth, or anywhere they may live. Often I never know if I’ve reached anyone.

An anonymous gift is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. It makes all my efforts worthwhile. Thank you!

      Amazing what it does for the world when someone takes the time and thought to spread some kindness. I’ve learned you can’t hold on to kindness. It has to be passed on to keep it alive.
