This evening as I was checking my Facebook updates I came across a photo a friend has posted sharing ideas on how to bring kindness in one’s day-to-day life. It really inspired me! When was the last time I shared a kind, thoughtful word with someone? When was the last time I did an unexpected act of kindness? Thankfully, I quickly recalled some small little acts of thoughtfulness I had done throughout the day for my co-workers but it made me realise how little I actually do to brighten the lives of those around me. Maybe you can relate?
I don’t believe it’s a self-absorbed, uncaring nature that gets in the way of sharing kindness it’s just we don’t make the time to share and care. Life is too fast paced that we all too easily forget about the needs of those around us.
This week I’m planning on putting extra effort into lifting the burdens of someone else’s load and adding a ray of sunshine into someone’s life. Care to join me?
Here’s a few ideas. . .
Forgive mistakes. Help a stranger. Give a compliment. Offer a hug. Share a word of encouragement. Be tolerant. Open a door.
Leave a thank you note.
In need of a few more ideas? Why not be an angel for a day?
