Acts of Kindness


Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day. I know I like to do things for others, so this celebration of kindness speaks to my heart. I especially like to do things anonymously, when possible.

It is easy to find kind things to do, too. Quite often, the ordinary acts are the most needed. I can pick up trash and put it into the proper receptacle. I figure that someone needs to, and it benefits everyone. I will take a neighbor’s trash can in from the curb, when I take my own in. I often hold the door at the post office, because it is a nice thing to do. These actions have become so ordinary to me, but they make people smile. That is my reward.

There is such a need for kindness. It costs nothing, and the opportunities are endless. See what you can do to make the world a little bit kinder and gentler. And, don’t be surprised when you feel better, too.

  1. Sweet video……and it’s true really that even what we think is a simple thing that we may do for someone, can be HUGE in their world – they may rarely experience someone’s selflessness for THEIR benefit. It feels wonderful when we do things for someone else. Makes our hearts happy!

    Love, Pam

  2. I try to do this every day. I love to give coupons to people in restaurants and stores. Although, sometimes people act very suspicious like I am trying to trick them. XO

  3. Want to know something neat? I picked up and properly disposed of an empty snack bag from the lawn of my local YMCA this morning on my way to work out. ~grin~ I don’t always do that sort of thing, mainly due to fear of germs. But I was wearing gloves. ~grin~ Love you, girl!

  4. This made me cry like a baby! I was doing okay until it got to the little girl in the school uniform. And, he got a dog out of it! Perfect. Thank you for posting this and ruining my eye makeup. 🙂

  5. I’ve seen that commercial before, but it STILL made me tear up when I watched it this time. The world in which we live needs a whole lot more acts of kindness, every day.
