There are so many people in the world..you know because you bump into them all of the time. But isn’t that one of the problems…
You bump into each other, you run around each other, you talk around each, but when is the last time you did something for someone who was a complete stranger..
Well before you dismiss this you should know that there are studies that say people who give to others are actually happier, so perhaps you might want to pay attention.
Random Acts of Kindness are a great way, well just to do something nice for someone you don’t know for no reason at all. It can be anything, a shout out on-line just to say hello. Paying for the coffee of the person behind you, without saying a word, sitting with someone in the hospital, or paying for someone’s bag of groceries.
RAK’s can be not only a great ways to be a blessing to someone, they are often felt by people long after you have come and gone. I have even heard of people passing them along to others just because someone did something nice for them.
Here I share a story about a random act of kindness someone did for me.
Random Acts of Kindness are a great way to bless someone else, but they also become a wonderful way to make someone’s day. Plus, you can’t do something nice without feeling the impact of the gift yourself. It’s almost like two people got gifts, both you and them. Although, you may not know the person, or even get a chance to see their reaction, but that is not the point.
Kindness is a gift that anyone of us can give, whether it is time, encouragement, money, or your presence. You never know how you one gift may life someone’s day, or even their life. It may give them the courage and strength to go just a little bit further, or it might be one bright spot during a terrible time.
Have you ever done a RAK, and if so how did you feel when you were done? Please feel free to comment below.
What would happen if you picked a day, shared it with your friends. Each of you could do a RAK and report back what happened and most importantly how you felt. [tweet “You may not feel like you can change the world, but each of us has the power to change a life. One small act at a time.”]
What could you do today that would make someone’s day just a little bit brighter?
