#HAWMC Day 3: There’s No Such Thing As A Small Act Of Kindness

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.

Tuesday Tunes: “Ain’t No Man” by The Avett Brothers

I’ve always loved The Avett Brothers and this song just reminds me why.

It’s an upbeat, feel good song about not letting other people dull your shine, step all over you, detail your path or make you feel like you’re not good enough.

You’ve got to serve something, ain’t that right? I know it gets dark, but there’s always the light.

It’s about being so confident and proud of who you are, that you don’t let other people make you question your dreams. 

If you want to feel good about yourself and if you want to feel like this girl 💃🏼, then seriously, do yourself a favor and listen to this song! 

I Aim To Be Like The Sunflower 🌻

While most girls wish for a bouquet of roses to show up at their door, I hope to be handed a sunflower.  

The happy flower. That big, tall, yellow thing in the distance. The flower that symbolizes adoration, loyalty and longevity. 

  
I don’t think there is anything quite as beautiful as the sunflower and I’ll tell you why:

On the darkest of days, this flower stands tall and faces the sun. Wherever the light may be, no matter how weak this flower may be, it always finds it. That is such an admirable trait. One I aim to adopt for myself. 

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine

-Anthony D’Angelo

I aim to be like the sunflower. To keep my face toward the sunshine so that I can’t see my shadow. 

  

 

 

Song of the Week: “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King 

  
Keeping the soul vibe goin on with this week’s song of the week.

Feels like this song is giving me a warm hug when I listen to it. It’s completing, loving, and a “never gets old” favorite of so many. Whether it’s a significant other, spouse, best friend, sibling, etc..I hope you all feel loved this weekend and know that you’ll always have someone to stand by you when things get dark and stormy. 

Spreading love to you all 😊💕
