Day 158: Gave Away My Lunch
My job at ZocDoc requires me to meet with different doctors all throughout Chicago. As I drive around, I am always saddened by the fact that I see so many homeless people waiting on the on ramps asking for food and money. As much as I would like to, I can't afford to give money to each one, and I feel super guilty at the fact that I have given to others but not these specific people. It sucks actually that I can't but I try to find different ways to at least give them something small or wish them well. During my driving today, I encountered a man on the side of the road that read "I'll Take A Smile And/Or A Meal." Well, today, for my random act of kindness, he received both. I could stand to miss a meal or two on my mission to lose weight and get in shape, so I gave the man my lunch for today. Now, I am off to California where more random acts await!
