Random AoK

Just for today

perform a random act of kindness.

 

And the thing about random acts of kindness

is that they must be…well, random.

Oh, and the one that you gift a kindness to

is a whole other person than the one to return a kindness back atcha.

(Although receiving one from the same person is a happy bonus.)

 

So smile at the checkout dude.

Let that lady out in front of you in traffic.

Open a door for the next person

even if they’re not immediately behind you.

Be verbally patient with that friendly, muddy dog.

Wash your spouse’s left-behind dish again

without saying anything.

 

And notice how your random acts of kindness

become contagious

in a good way.

 

In creating random acts of kindness, others will pattern you

and pass them on.

 

This is actually incredibly awesome.

You’ll see.

 

************

Think about your day today.  Can you perform a random act of kindness, no matter how small?

What random act of kindness have you received? Did you recognize it? How did you feel?
