Can we all agree that what the world needs is more love, more kindness, and more Starburst jelly beans?
What’s the kindest thing that someone has randomly done for you?
For me, as a foster mom, and the proud ‘owner’ of the best friends in the world, I get a lot of anonymous gifts from friends when I get a new foster placement: diapers, coffee, donuts, and sometimes all three all at once:
Pretty fantastic, right? One day I opened my front door and found this pile of goodness and had no idea who my magical Donut + Diaper Fairy was. And that’s the great thing about random acts of kindness – they are done from the heart, and are done simply for the benefit of the receiver and has nothing to do with the giver.
Some people may shake their heads at days like today. As if it’s a self-serving gimmick, much akin to Valentine’s Day and Groundhogs Day (oh wait. Maybe just the former and not the latter.) But I love this day, because it gives you a great opportunity to intentionally go out and serve someone who is not going to pay you back in any way, shape, or form. Kindness for kindness sake! Don’t we all need to see more of that in the world today? Yes we do! So let’s be the kind faces, hands, and feet that the world needs! And if you feel like you are too busy, too tired, too poor to help someone else, we have some ideas that require very little of you, but that will mean so much to someone else!
Some ideas are: “I like you because you ________” “You are special because __________” “Thanks for ___________” “I want to inform you that ________”
Here is a great podcast I recently stumbled upon that talks about having a great attitude of gratitude, because gratitude unlocks a fuller life. We can stop thinking about what we don’t have, and instead leverage the many things we do have to help those who are really in need.
