Kindness still exists.

So today,
As I went took the train back to the city my wallet fell out of my pocket somehow. I got out of the station  and walked to the Chambers street stop I check for my wallet and realized it was missing.In hopes of finding it I retraced my steps with no luck. I asked around and everyone just seemed hopeless. I guess because it was NYC  and the odds of finding  things are slim.

I thought to myself... how am I going to get home with no wallet (no ids,spare change or credit cards).I really didn't want to ask someone for a swipe because I didn't want people to think I was a panhandler especially after the article I read today about panhandling. (Side Note: did you know there are different levels/ types of panhandlers?  I didn't!)

Anyways, I thought Ill ask the MTA booth if  they could let me in the gate since I lost my wallet. A part of me also thought  " yeah right, he's probably going to have an attitude... or he's not going to believe you then you'll definitely have to ask someone for a swipe." To my surprise he told me where the nearest lost and found was and let me through the gate. This REALLLY made my day. I could get home!

I was also proud of myself at how I handled this situation. I was pretty calm. Ten years ago, I probably would've has a panic attack, broken down and cried my eyes out in hopes my wallet would be somewhere  in the abyss of my bag. 

Fast forward to 9PM, some guy

Life Lessons 1

Here are some things I've learned:

  1. Treat everyone with respect and love and know that not everyone is going to look out for your best interest.
  2. Not everyone is your "friend" no matter how long you have known them.My dear, frenemies and haters are rampant these days.
  3. You should not remain friends with someone  just because you went to school with them. If they are not enhancing your life why bother (Vice versa).
  4. Take time to notice and remember the little things like the people who check to see if you've landed safely from a flight.
