A simple act of kindness goes a long way. It doesn’t matter if it is something huge or something small, it is appreciated. Children are naturally kind to everyone. They learn this while playing and watching adults. Somewhere along the lines our sense of kindness, thoughtfulness either grows or dies out some. People use to wave at you for no reason, whether they knew you or not. People use to walk up and shake your hand and introduce themselves for no reason at all.

In reflection, I remember neighbors meeting and waving all the time. If you were sick, one of the neighbors brought over some soup. You see it doesn’t matter if you are opening the door for someone or if you are mowing their grass or you simply shoot a stranger a smile. You need to show some form of it daily, it is good for the soul. If you can imagine for one moment what it feels like to give an act of kindness, can you imagine receiving one? A smile speaks a thousand words. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything and knows no language. A smile warms the soul.

Not use to giving or receiving the gift of kindness. Throw someone off guard. Offer to take out the garbage for your elderly neighbor, or the next time you go to the store call and ask them if they need anything. These little simple gestures will not only make their day, but it will make you so happy that you will start to spread more and more kindness.

We all need to act on it. We all can use a ray of sunshine every now and then. We all could use a helping hand here and there. So, forget all barriers both near and far. Stretch your limits and go out of your way for someone. Don’t be afraid to show others what you are made of. And if you believe in karma, you already know it will come back to you tenfold. Wishing you all the kindness in the world!
