Today I spent 2 hours wandering up and down a small beach area practicing random acts of kindness. I picked up three bags of trash (no litter laws and people seem to think it is okay to just get up and leave their garbage behind). Smiled and said good morning to everyone I met (something unheard of in this culture for the most part). And gave money to a couple of street cleaners (they work long hours for little pay). My reward was joy in doing something nice without expecting in return. Plus, I got a healthy dose of Vitamin D, fresh air for mental clarity and the sound of lapping waves to soothe the soul.
I also found two heart rocks. One embedded in the sand and one that I brought home. I'm always on the lookout for them but never have any success. Perhaps it was a sign.
Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday,
