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.
