A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. -- Saint Basil
When was the last time you did something kind without asking for anything in return? This morning? Yesterday? Last week? Don't remember?
Kindness is the simple act of helping another. It comes in many forms: smiling, kind words, helping reach something high for a stranger, letting someone go ahead of you in line, etc. It may not seem like a big deal to you but it has a huge impact on someone else.
I try to show kindness to people I meet and those I love every day. I smile at the exhausted grocery cashier and wish him/her a great day. I do something unexpected for my husband (aka household chores, backrub, etc.). I show compassion, love and a listening ear for a Twitter follower in need. They may seem small but they can have a huge impact.
Do something kind today. You will be feel happy inside and you will be making a difference in the lives of others. Imagine if every human on earth did something kind for each other. It would be a whole new world.
