The Power of Kindness

Comment 1 Standard

Never underestimate the power of being kind to someone, especially someone you don’t know.

I found myself getting a little annoyed at people as I was shopping at the grocery store today. When I start feeling that fire in my belly, I try to think of something positive.

While I didn’t have an opportunity to perform a random act of kindness today, besides hold a door for someone, here is a list of some things I have done for strangers:

  • Bought someone a coffee (I’ve done this many, many times back home – especially in the Tim Horton’s drive thru!)
  • Bought a homeless person food
  • Made someone laugh randomly
  • Offered a seat on the bus/subway
  • Signed a petition for a cause someone else believes in
  • Opened many doors
  • Indirect acts of kindness – sponsoring children in third world countries, purchasing items that support charities like FEED USA + Target

In February a week is dedicated to Random Acts of Kindness, but really it should be every day.

  1. See, the kid at Dunkin just made my day! He gave me a munchkin! I guess I looked like I needed more chocolate!
