Did an 8.5 mile hike on the Grey Wolf river yesterday. Forty miles from my house and I had never even heard of it. Very pristine, very beautiful, very energising.
Also learned a very basic life lesson yesterday.....well the last two days.
Two days ago had to get some financial aid stuff done for one of the twins. The woman at the office was.....lets just say doing the minimum of her job, no help, nothing extra.
Yesterday I discovered that twin two had the same problem with his financial aid stuff. I dreaded going back and doing the same dance again. This time different woman, super helpful, very pleasent, done in 1/10 of the time. Two different people, same job, huge differece.
I know that being good, helpful and nice just comes natural to some people and others(like me) need to work on it.
Just a great example of how the little things can effect others.
