Random acts of kindness

Hi All

What do you do when your day starts out badly. i like to find some one who i can be kind to. My motivation is very selfish, it helps me to have a more positive head space. It only ever something simple like saying hello to a stranger waiting for a bus that looks lonely.

It’s not unusual for an act of kindness to shift someone’s miserable day into an uplifting one. Wow, what power kindness yields!

And yet, we’re often too busy, too distracted, too focused on something else to take a moment out to be kind to a fellow human beings.

Ironically, we take time out to be kind to pets and yet, with our harried pace of living, we often have no time to be kind to each other.

We’re walking down the street and a person inadvertently bumps into us. Before he’s had a chance to offer an apology, we’ve responded with a dagger look and a reprimand: “Hey, watch where you’re going.”

Yet, when a four-legged creature with a wagging tail comes to sniff us out, many of us respond with pure kindness. “Hey, such a good doggie. You’re so cute. Look at those eyes. So beautiful.” Your response reaps dividends for the lucky dog, his lucky owner and you. You all have experienced a winning moment which makes your day just a little bit more pleasant.
