random acts of kindness

Yesterday, I was walking through out of a building, when I lost my grip on the heavy black binder I was carrying. It was windy, so all my papers flew everywhere. There was a stereotypical group of guys that looked like and acted like "gangsters" near the door, the kind that talk loud, the kind who don't care about anything, wear sagging pants, get into fights, and hate people who are different, the type I generally try to avoid. I thought the guys would laugh at me, make fun of me. They rushed to help me pick every single one of my papers. And they told a guy who wasn't helping, "Hey help her, it's your job." I couldn't believe it, I was truly touched by their act of kindness. The unexpected caring from a stranger is the one of the best things in this world.

What's a random act of kindness that you've experienced?

I stayed at a friend's place last night, so I couldn't post. I don't know how many calories were in the dinner we ate, because it was a foreign food. It tasted good, but I can't stand eating something without knowing the calorie intake. It drives me insane, not knowing.

I weighed myself on her scale, and it said 102.4. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that her scale is inaccurate, and that my scale (which said 106, the last time I weighed) is accurate. It makes me wonder, how to tell which scales are correct.

What kind of scale do you have (digital or not)? Do you weigh different amounts on different scales?

determined girl- Thank you for your comment! :) I resist it by smelling it and imagining that I taste it, so I feel like I've eaten.
becoming nothing- It's one of my favorite thinspo pics. :) Whoa, seven other people? I'd love that, like a constant party! Thank you so much for commenting! Good luck on your goals too, I know you can do it! :)
Skinny_legs- I think I might get a friendship bracelet in red also, one day, that's a good idea! I dislike a lot of frosting, because it tastes extremely sweet, but I usually try to avoid major binge foods too! :) Preventing a binge is more important than fixing a binge. :) Thank you for your comment!
Alexa_K- No, I'm sure you are stronger than me. :) I once made cookies that looked literally like meat patties, because I substituted a lot of ingredients. No temptation there! :) Thanks for your comment!
Sofia- That's actually a random picture of a cake slice I found on the internet, but it is a beautiful picture. :) Thank you so much for your comment, it inspired me!
Heather Frost- Thank you for your comment! I hope more people also get a bracelet, so we can identify each other and know that we are not alone.
Neeska- It's one of my favorite things to do also. You sound like a great chef! :) My sister tastes things for me. Thank you so much for your comment!

Thank you for reading this post! You guys are amazing! <3


  1. that was a really sweet story
    and its always a nice reminder that not not all people in the world suck
    and that whole shpiel and not judging appearances blah blah blah
    then again tiny girls are more likely to garner that kind of treatment :D

  2. I travelled home in my film makeup, im a zombie, cause i needed to get home asap snd i had about five poeple come up to me and offer me water and hospital, it was sweet, i smiled and apologised for worrying them, that it was stage makeup that i hadnt had time to wash it off, shows people in london still care,

    im new to your blog btw

  3. Hooray for guys who are not jerks!
    Haha! :)
    For me, every compliment I receive is a random act of kindness.
    I know, sounds sad, but it is true.
    I am still not to the point where I can accept compliments well, and I may never get there.
    I use a dial scale to weigh myself with.
    As long as I ensure that it is calibrated correctly, it seems pretty accurate.
    Any time I weigh myself on my mom's digital scale, it always tells me I weigh "E".
    While it is nice to weigh "E", I would like a concrete number, please, so that I can tell whether or not what I am doing is paying off! :)
    Hope you are having a good day! :)
    Best of luck, love. <3

  4. for me its not so much about what scale I use so much as it is about picking one and sticking to it. In the end, I don't care as much if I am a pound or two lighter or heavier then I thought. I just want to know I'm smaller then yesterday


Don't be shy, leave a comment. :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
