Perform An Act of Kindness Today

When life is bumpy and you're tempted to fall into an emotional rut, here's a simple remedy that will help your spirits... and others, too.

Set your sights on a person, whether you know him / her or not and make this person the recipient of a random act of kindness. Small kind acts can work wonders on life!
  • It might be as simple as offering a compliment, making sure that it is super sincere, though.

  • Offer your hand or your help to someone that is struggling with a challenge or a task.

  • Give an inexpensive gift to a person you know, such as a rose or a movie theater ticket, or ???

  • Extend a hug to someone that is hurting.

  • Offer to babysit a friends child for an hour so that she / he can have a little respite time.
What made me want to write about this today is that, despite the fact that I feel and think I appear tired, two of my community friends unexpectedly paid me nice compliments... at a time that really meant a lot to my tired spirits AND definitely perked me up.

It really doesn't take much to touch another person's heart in easy, little ways. Heck, you'll feel better for it, too!

Warmly, Carolyn
