One day last week - I was going to drive to downtown to buy some gems for my jewelry clients and I decided to call Uber.
I had always had great luck with the drivers. In fact - I have a new great friend that came from taking an Uber.
But on this day the lady driving was completely silent. She was almost rude! I made one stop and then we were off to downtown. I was beginning to contemplate the dilemma of how many stars I was going to rate this woman with after the drive was over?
She seemed very frustrated and angry. I was not enjoying this ride.
And in that moment - I decided to be BLiSS even though I wasn't "feeling" happy. I chose to be positive and generous instead of scouling back.
I had some CHOCbite in my purse (my chocolate company) so I said, "Excuse me - would you like a piece of chocolate? I have dark, milk or white!"
She look back at me and grabbed her face with her hand and said, "Oh no thank you - I have really bad tooth ache!"
Wow - there I was getting aggravated by the drivers lack of "kindness" or "attention" when she was sitting there in grave pain trying to earn a living.
My heart opened up with compassion for this woman. And I gave her 5 stars.
