Yesterday I ran into a wall of human meanness and out right rudeness.
I can't go into details as it was work related...but suffice to say--I walked away a very frazzled angry Kat.
I just don't understand the mentality of meanness. Of unprovoked rudeness. At 42 years of age I've smacked up against it from time to time, but every time, every time... it leaves me puzzled and dispirited.
The positive note on this frustrating day is the people that know me who went of their way, when they saw my anger, to help soothe me.
Every little thing that they did to help make my day brighter helped fill up that empty feeling that the frustrating encounter had left me with.
Friends joking with me to lighten my mood, and my loved one fussing over me, making a picnic of snacks and hovering by me while we ate...listening while I ranted.
I pocketed every little act of kindness inside me for I value it for the wonderful gift it is.
And I thank you for making me smile in what was a grey and dismal day.
