**Please note: I am not telling the following story to make anyone think they need to send me something. I simply want to say thank you, and I hope that this person will inspire you to exhibit generosity in your everyday lives.**
When I got to the station today, there was a box sitting on my desk. I always think getting mail is fun (unless it's bills), but getting mail at work is especially thrilling! I opened it up, and inside was a lovely zebra print Z-Palette! It's a magnetic palette I can use to house all kinds of eyeshadows (any size or shape). I've never had one of these before. Definitely my kind of gift! What accompanied this palette was an incredibly heart-felt letter, stating that I had touched her life during a rough time. This whole thing brought tears to my eyes.
Lucci wanted to thank me for the ways I've helped her through my makeup channel. This went far above and beyond. But it made me realize just how much those random notes and thank-you's can mean. How far a simple compliment to someone can go. Often times, you don't know exactly what kind of circumstance someone is in, or what kind of day they've been having. Just making a nice, out of the blue gesture can make more of a difference than you realize.
So thank you, Lucci. Not just for sending me nice gift- but for being such a great example to me and others about what it means to be selfless. We are living in a fast-paced world, where, from time to time we all get caught up in our own problems and needs. I would challenge everyone to learn from Lucci's example, and try to do a good deed for someone. When you catch someone else in a bad mood and find yourself starting to make a judgement- stop and realize that you may not know exactly what they're going through. Always be kind, and if you have the opportunity to go above and beyond for someone, take it.
I realize this is a non-makeup related post, however it does apply to becoming a more beautiful person on the inside. So thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
