Today was a day of cycling after a long while. Now, as we all know, the bicycle track has footpaths and bicycle lanes but sometimes cyclists cross into footpaths and joggers cross into the bicycle lane. That is a perfectly common sight.
That happened for me and a small ring on the bell solved the issue. What made my day was when the joggers who gave way to me actually stopped their jogging completely and gave me a friendly smile as I passed by. I nodded my head in appreciation and said a word of thank you as I passed them by.
We can be meeting for the first time but we can make someone else's day by acknowledging them and showing them appreciation. A small nod or word of thanks may just make the day brighter for someone else!
