Then, your faith in humanity will be restored.
Thanks to Rex Chapman (who’s a beacon in the Twitter Shittisphere) for the heads up.
This lady was celebrating her birthday — by herself — until she was joined by other patrons and staff once they realize she's celebrating all alone.

5 years ago I felt like her. I didn’t have the self-respect to throw a bday party for 1, BUT, it was amazing what a random smile or a simple kindness from a stranger would make in my day.
It’s not hard to show kindness and it’s amazing what selfless kindness does when we act.
Living out of self creates love, goodwill, and depending on who that kindness is extended to, might save a life without you knowing.
We never see the ripple effect from being kind or spreading joy, but the ripple effect caused by selflessness is a beautiful wave that permeates depression and fear. It perpetuates more kindness because of how it makes those on the giving and receiving ends feel.
A smile for the Cashiers at Costco who HATE their lives can change their lives.
Helping someone who’s struggling when we don’t feel like it creates pride from the gap we fill with something that makes us more grateful. The more we act the better the world around us gets.
“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
Challenge yourself (just like those restaurant workers did) to fill that gap and see how the world around you changes when you do.
