Kindness

Today’s challenge is being kind to others. I was reminded yesterday, when total strangers offered to load my car with a heavy purchase, that it means the world to someone on the receiving end.

Be mindful of others and any chance you can to be kind to someone, you should never pass that up. Hold a door open for someone; let a car out in front of you in busy traffic; offer to get something off a high shelf for someone in a wheelchair; open the grocery bags on the carousal as you’re checking out; pick up a piece of trash… There are so many small things you can do that make such a difference to others.

Above all, smile. Say hello to strangers and if they seem to want to talk, stop and take a minute to do so if you have the time. In this world of internet friendships, we sometimes forget to make human connections. You can really make someone’s day by just taking a minute to let them know you see them. They aren’t invisible and someone cares enough to smile at them. You can make a difference in someone’s life without even realizing it.

Thank you, kind strangers. I will pay it forward!

Have a great day!!!
