Acts of Kindness
Often times people live their lives out day to day without thinking much about others. Some may have kids, a husband or wife and even parents. We love our friends and family, but what about the people around us. The person standing next to you in line at the grocery store or in line at the gas station? Or what about the people we know, don’t pay close mind to? We live in a world where going through the motions is far too common. Think about how you would feel if someone paid for your gas or for your meal in the drive through. You never know what a person is going through by looking at them from the outside.
Acts of kindness can be done where ever and whenever. Acts of kindness are important to practice because they can help change a person’s day and attitude. Not only could you change someone’s day, but you could change someone’s life through one act of kindness. Performing acts of kindness not only has a positive effect on the person receiving kindness, but also for the person giving kindness. Think about all the times that you mad or mean in your life. Think about the time, energy and effort it took to say the words you said, or to maintain the body language that you did. Anger and negativity are contagious, but so is positivity and kindness.
cts of kindness can be big or small. It could be paying someone’s bills, or helping a person load their groceries into their car. Large or small you can turn a whole person’s day around by doing one act of kindness. Next time you are in line for your morning cup of coffee, pay for the person behind you. You never know whose life you can change by lending a helping hand or paying it forward.
