Sometimes all it takes to turn a bad day or even week around is one moment of kindness.
To the person offering up a bit of compassion, it may seem like nothing, but being on the receiving end of it can really change everything. Something as simple as a compliment or a nice gesture can set the tone for the rest of the day. For one Redditor who goes by ktbluesnow, that small act of kindness came in the form of a flower and an unexpected message from a total stranger they’d never meet.
On the way to school, a flower resting on a bench caught their eye, but it was the note they found alongside it that really struck a chord. Here’s what it said.
Hello! I’m Luna. I left this flower and note to tell you, you are special and unique in every single way. Don’t forget you’re only human and it’s okay to make mistakes. I believe the worst person can change only if they try and might get help along the way. It’s hot outside and no special date but I wanted you, the stranger who found this, to know. You are beautiful just the way you are! Don’t forget. Hope you have a nice day.
And it really is that easy. All it takes is a few kind words to turn a bad day into a good one. Based on the handwriting it appears that Luna is a little child, but no matter what her age is, we could all take a page out of her book and extend a little kindness to someone each and every day.
You never know who you might end up helping. If you’re inspired by this message, be sure to share Luna’s note with everyone you love!
