Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Scott Adams
A smile to the person passing you by. A note to a stranger telling them to have a good day. Offering to help someone carry their bags to their car. Little acts of kindness such as these, are actually not so little at all. When you act kindly, you inspire others around you to act kindly as well. No act of kindness is too small. The positive effect that you can have on someone’s day should be reason enough to act kind. Just think about the bad days you’ve had yourself. Doesn’t it make your super crappy day just a little bit better when someone does or says something kind to, even if it’s just a compliment or offering to do a small favor for you? Having kindness sent your way can completely turn your day around. Therefore, when you spread kindness to someone else, you have to the potential to completely turn their day around as well.
There are a couple of places that I like to turn to when I want to hear positive stories about people being kind: The Bobby Bones Show and the Love What Matters podcast (which is run by Amy from The Bobby Bones Show.” The Bobby Bones show promotes pimpin joy, which means when you spread joy and kindness to someone else, they are likely to spread that joy and kindness to another someone else, and so on and so forth. They always encourage people to do something kind for someone, and their stories of real people doing so always bring a smile to my face. In fact, they have something called Joy Week, where they do things to spread joy every single day of the week and share those things with their listeners. The Love What Matters podcast does something similar. It shares incredible and positive stories about people just like you and I. Most of the time, those stories include someone doing something kind for someone else.
Always remember: there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act of kindness will help someone in ways you may never believe.
Let’s be kind to one another.
