In November, we celebrate World Kindness Day but I believe that we should perform acts of kindness every day, all year long. Random acts of kindness can change someone’s life or save someone’s life. People can connect through kindness and kindness can be taught.
Why We Should be Kind
Over the last 15 years, I’ve been traveling a lot and meeting thousands of people. One thing I’ve really learned is you never know about what they experienced the moment before they met you. Did they just break up with someone, lose a family member, get fired or receive a promotion? You never know what someone is going through. Sometimes a smile or compliment from you about their hair, their shoes or their clothes can really make their day.
Every so often, I’ll try to do something good for another person. I’ll shovel snow, cut grass, buy him or her something he or she has been working hard to purchase. In my opinion, that small act of kindness can make all the difference. Together, we make the world go around. It’s important to share knowledge and experiences we’ve learned from and help the next person. I believe that is why we’ve made it this far.
Make Kindness the Norm
So, always be on the lookout for your next opportunity to do something nice for another individual. It feels great to you, yet it feels even better for the other person.
