Random Act of Kindness

I have walked through my apartment entrance with my briefcase (which carries my laptop) and my handbag in the morning many times, and never have anyone run in front of me and opened the door and let me go through effortlessly.  This happened to me this morning by my African American neighbour or visitor.  What a nice, random act of kindness.  I immediately started my day with a good mood and thought about the other acts of kindness I could do to others:

for example:

  • gave a discount coupon code for a concert to a friend
  • bought flowers for my colleague to celebrate his becoming a U.S. citizen
  • told someone I was grateful for their acts which they could not remember
  • smiled at strangers and wished them a great day
  • held the elevator and prompted the person to get in even though the elevator was pretty full

AND:

  • be kind to yourself – write down 3 things you are grateful for everyday

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;

for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;

and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
