So, earlier this week I went to my regular grocer to pick up a few things for dinner that night. As usual, I always go to my favorite people at the registers, even if it's a longer line.
That day, it happened to be the person who always asked me about how I enjoy leading a plant based lifestyle, & how it has affected me. Little by little, I gave more insight, every time I got to see her. But that day, specifically, she closed her register after I checked out, & hurriedly followed me outside where she touched my arm, & broke down crying.
She explained that every time we talked, she'd go home & learn more about what we briefly talked about. Then began bringing it up to her doctor... As of end of last week, she's been able to really target what's been wrong with her body... Lowering a few of her meds , & not fully but slowly switching to a more plant based lifestyle, she's able to feel her feet again.
I took that moment in... really let it sink in to something tangible. Most everyone we meet has a specific lesson to teach us, whether it's short term or long term. It matters, people matter. And the words we share matter, bc you never really know how those words can affect someone's life. -
It reminded me to always be mindful & grateful, all in the same breath.
Happy #GratiTuesday. 🙏🏼
