What I'm wearing:















A Necklace With a Story

One week ago today: I shared a beautiful moment with someone who had been a total stranger only minutes before:

The scene: a Mexican bar in midtown, Manhattan

The story: There was a woman sitting at the bar, whose necklace I absolutely adored (a pretty little silver om on a delicate chain)... so I told her it was lovely and my friend and I started to chat with her and her boyfriend over some seriously strong margaritas (obligatory sidenote: tequila you are a sneaky little thing, you!) Our night continued on with much bonding, and after saying goodbye at the end of the night, she came back into the bar, and from behind me clasped her little Om necklace around my neck. She told me that I'd touched her, she felt lucky to meet me, and to one day pass it along to someone when the moment feels right.

One week later, I'm still wearing her necklace, and every time I touch it, am reminded of the goodness in people, and how wonderful an experience it can be to embrace new people and experiences that life brings your way.

Life lesson of the week: Pay it forward.
