At 9AM, I stepped onto a steep ‘up’ escalator whilst holding the handle of my suitcase.
Halfway up, I let go of aforementioned handle in order to adjust my coat.
And then I watch with horror as this suitcase tips and starts flipping down the escalator in slow motion.
After running down the ‘up’ for a few seconds, I give up.
I decide to just stand still.
‘Cause although I used to make a sport out of running down up escalators there’s no way I’m going to catch this bag right now.
As I give up, a woman alights the moving staircase and waits for the suitcase to slam into her legs.
“I got it!” She yells.
And I wait at the top of the escalator.
Laughing at myself and this situation. Because, of course.
It was like one of those scenes from the movies. That of a heartbroken woman ascending the stairs at the airport to see the love of her life waiting for her.
(Except it was just be being reunited with my suitcase).
I thank her, “there’s no way I could have gotten it alone.”
So many times, there’s no way we can do it alone.
But you know what’s great?
We’re *never* alone.
Be there for someone else today. Allow someone else to be there for you.
A simple action can change someone’s tone when she says, ‘you wouldn’t believe what kind of morning I had.’
It doesn’t take much to change someone’s day.
It doesn’t take much at all.
