Random Acts Of Kindness

No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. Photo

On a scale of 1-10, how kind do you think you are?

Kindness is such an integral part of being human. Without kindness, the world will be a dark, gloomy place.

Imagine people stuck in their worlds, refusing to lend helping hands to others. Imagine people who have no care in whether you're sick, injured, or dead. Imagine people who will not lift a finger to help you, even when you're in need. Imagine everyone who only fend for themselves, never for others around them.

How will you feel in such a world? Will you like it?

This is the world we are heading to.

A world that is empty and void of life. Everything is mechanical and dead. Rather than color and life, we're living in a world of grey.

Let's bring light into the world of others.

Let's make sure we complete at least one random act of kindness per day. Such as:
-Being kind to everyone you see.
-Going out of your usual zone to help others.
-Smiling at strangers, even if they aren't smiling at you first.
-Saying hi / Greeting everyone you see.
-Doing something special for someone, without reason.
-Sincerely complementing someone.

You have no idea how much a simple act of kindness can mean to someone. A simple word or gesture can make someone's day. There's a lot more people who need help than people giving help. We need to double our efforts people..
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle." ~Plato
Of course, to be loving and kind to others, you must first be loving and kind to yourself. It always begins with you and how you feel about yourself. This is how you build your self-esteem and confidence. Being vibrantly healthy, living fully, and celebrating life starts with celebrating ourselves.
"A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child." ~The Knights of Pythagoras
Empathy is one of the greatest gifts of being human. We have the ability to understand where the other person is coming from. Grow and nurture this gift, learn to release judgment and anger. Show kindness and start to influence real change in our world.

Share this article with at least one person you know. This way, we make sure our efforts are at least doubled. LET'S MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
