I was tired of feeling sick today, of having a not so fun time energy-wise lately. I’ve nailed it down to some sort of sinus infection. Not cool. So anyways, you know how when you’re at the point I’m at, you just start to crave comfort? Well that was me tonight. I broke down and I splurged. I went to my favourite funky veggie restaurant in Kits, The Naam, and ordered myself a mouth watering Naam Bowl – a huge bowl of steamed veggies, tofu, whole grain rice and a whole lot of miso gravy goodness on top. My favourite.
The waiter was an especially nice guy. After almost finishing all of that off I went over to the counter to check out the desserts. I figured since I was already treating myself I might as well go the extra mile and fill myself with as much comfort food as I could. My eyes widened as I glanced over all of the homemade pies. Yep – decision made. Dessert it would be. I sat back down to wait for his opinion, but before you knew it he had brought his favourite Apple-Cranberry-Crumble over to my table, warm & ready to go. The exact one I was going to ask his opinion on. How did he know?!! And best of all, he didn’t charge me for it. He just wanted me to enjoy his favourite dessert of the whole place. That meal was already special enough for me and he just topped it off. Smart guy because I’ll be back for more one day sooner than later that’s for sure.
It’s always the little things that count. You never know how much something small might mean to someone. It might just be the pick me up they’ve been needing or the spark to set them off in the right direction for the day. You never know. Look for those little things. How can you help make someone’s day?!
Smile with your heart!
