She was so appreciative that I did this for her that she pulled over to the side of the road and got out of her car to thank me. This may not sound like such a big deal but she was so happy that I helped her that I in turn could not help but feel good about what I had done.
This made me think that if everybody took a few minutes each day to perform some act of kindness for others how much better of a place it would be to live in. I am always hearing of how people do kind things for others in times of crisis which is wonderful, but what about performing an act of kindness for someone else on a day-day basis just because we can?
These acts of kindness do not need to be complicated, they can be as simple as planting a tree, putting change in a parking meter, cooking a meal for someone, leaving change in a vending machine, calling or visiting someone who is sick, shoveling snow for a neighbour etc. (www.randomactsofkindess.org/kindness-ideas)
One never knows the impact a single act of kindness can have on someone else's life. When we do good it makes us feel good, and who does not like to feel good? Hopefully this will inspire my readers to think of an act of kindness they can pass on to someone else, even if it is as simple as giving someone directions!
