Day Two: Buy a coffee for a stranger
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Today’s adventure will be easy for some and completely terrifying for others. I am asking you to go and buy a coffee for a stranger.
As you walk past your cafe of choice, buy a drink for yourself and then one for another. Whether you pay for the next person in line, or you buy a takeaway and give it to someone as you walk back to your car, it’s your choice.
You need to step out of your comfort zone today and do something for someone; someone who can never repay you.
If you are that way inclined, say a little prayer and ask for direction. Then do it.
The most important part of today’s adventure is to not over think it. Seriously, just jump in and have a go.
I am sure a smile will surface at some point in your day as you reflect on the moment you shared with a stranger.
And yes, they need to be a complete stranger!
