It’s Easter this weekend, and all the candy is on sale, and I’ve been good about not binging on the chocolate eggs, and now it’s a buy one and get one free situation.
So I bought a bag of chocolate eggs, buy one get one free, and gave it to someone that works in my building.
And that person was so grateful, and happy.
I kept the little things that matter going, and when the elevator in the lobby opened I let a women go in first. Usually I go by age. Older people go first. But she might have been younger than me. So when I said, “After you” she looked stunned.
When the doors closed she acknowledged it like it’s not a frequent thing. Which I get. She said, “Thank you. That was really nice of you.” And I thought about nice. I was not trying to be nice. I was trying to do the mannered thing. Be civilized and step it up with opening a door for someone younger than me. Shift the daily narrative.
Little things matter.
