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
in a good way.
In creating random acts of kindness, others will pattern you
and pass them on.
This is actually incredibly awesome.
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?
