Erika is giving away a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card
My hopes and dreams for 2017 are very simple. I hope to see more kindness and tolerance in the world, and one of the ways I plan to do my part is by random acts of kindness. It’s something that costs nothing, yet can mean so much to someone else. It shows compassion and patience and genuine caring, and it feels good to know that you’ve touched another person’s life in a positive way. It’s the small things that matter . . . opening a door for someone else. Letting another driver merge in front of your car, instead of speeding up so they can’t. Picking up something that someone might have dropped. Buying the drink for the person behind you in the drive-through line at your favorite coffee house so it’s an unexpected surprise. (that one is my personal favorite to do!) Let someone with fewer groceries than yourself go ahead of you in line. Find opportunities to give someone a genuine compliment. Write a positive review of a business you like (especially a small business, where the reviews really matter!). Pick up the phone and call someone you haven’t talked to in a while, just to say hi and to see how they are doing. The opportunities are absolutely endless, and the best part is, those random acts of kindness will lift your spirits and make YOU feel good, as well. It’s a win-win situation.
What other random acts of kindness do you practice? And what is one of the most memorable random acts of kindness that someone did for you?
