I never thought anyone would say things that nice...

Apparently... my current employer was talking to a former co-worker... and my co-worker told my current employer "There are two kinds of people... people you can trust... and people you cant..." and he said i was the former.

I wouldnt have believed my employer actually had such a discussion but then he told me the story of how i had helped my coworker move furniture from his deceased mother's house. Spent an entire day just moving furniture onto a truck... thats it... nothing special

I couldnt help but smile... like genuinely smile... long after im absent from the everyday life of this coworker... he still finds time to say something nice about me....

The irony? I drove this guy crazy when i was working with him... if he and i took a break at the same time his reaction would be along the lines of "You cant be serious"

To be fair i drive everybody bonkers with my antics... but knowing i helped someone in a meaningful way that they will not only remember in the longterm but also talk about.... it... its a fulfilling feeling... and im happy... like im actually happy... which i pretty much gave up hope on ever being happy again in my life...

so yeah... im happy...

Howard Pittman says it another way: "There are two kinds of people in the world: sayers and doers."

Your words mean nothing if your actions contradict them.

God told Howard Pittman during his NDE that not all the sayers would be in heaven, but all the doers would be.

Good stuff...

Its a beautiful thing. Cheers sir. You feel that joy.

Its the little things that most change us, isnt it? Think of how powerful this moment is. How much more powerful it is having been far from it. How tears can swell just thinking about what was lost along the way and what is earned before you....how all that was suffered in loss is somehow vindicated and renewed like nothing is missing....Stay in that thought, linger in that moment and will it to the surface the next time you find yourself far from a smile.

Hail, the indomitable heart. Hail the unconquered soul. Right now you are in victory. The sort of victory that holds defiantly even in defeat. The absurd victory. It is yours.

Sissyfuss smiles.

I guess you made an impression on your co worker.

What kind of antics did you get up to, if you don't mind me asking?

Dancing, Talking to my self, singing hakuna matata, arguing with myself, breaking wooden spacers, introducing myself to customers as the most interesting person they will ever meet (people remember your name after that XD )

You never know how someone really thinks. If you do good, a lot of people will remember. That is part of karma, someone remembered and mentioned it.

I've often said that our duty as human beings is to leave this world a better place than it was while we were here. This can be anything from a smile on someone's face, passing of wisdom or something more grandiose. It seems you left this co-worker with a good impression...and that means you've done your duty, in my eyes at least.

Actually helping someone takes many forms...from a simple smile or a hello to actually aching for them and thinking about them in your prayers, meditations or whatever solemn spiritual act you may perform.
