Practice acts of kindness



Spread the kindness around by sharing your love and generosity with others around you. It can be cheeky drink and nibbles with friends as an unexpected surprise (see above) or you could send them a handwritten card. Maybe buy your mum flowers when she least expects it, she did give birth to you after all! Get that DVD or book they have been talking about. Maybe you've made them a home cooked meal when you knew they were busy. Practice any action that will make them smile. Any action big or small is an act of kindness.

If you want a life that is filled with love and happiness, then you need to spread it around as much as possible. How about passing on a random act of kindness to a stranger, pay for their coffee, or pass them your day travel ticket when you are finished with it. I didn't have enough change for a train station toilet the the other day and a lovely lady saved me from a rather soggy embarrassment by giving me 20p. It gave my heart warm fuzzies and emptied my bladder. What more could you want? With that good deed still fresh in my mind, I made sure I smiled at everyone that I made eye contact with, I helped a lady with her suitcase and opened the door for my fellow man.

It makes you feel good when you do good.
