Small Acts of Kindness Go A Long Way
If the past year has taught us anything, it has shown us that doing even the smallest things for someone can brighten up their whole day. I know that sounds super cheesy and cliche but it’s true. Whenever someone takes time to hold the door open for me or compliments something I’m wearing, my mood is instantly lifted.
It is so easy for us to get wrapped up in our own lives and the drama we may be dealing with, but we have to remember that everyone is going through something as well. We all have those stressful days where nothing seems to be going right or we received some bad news. That is what makes us human.
Maybe you aren’t on the receiving end of the small act of kindness, but you are the one doing it. I definitely have had those days where I feel negative and just want to go to bed. However, if I get the chance to do something nice for someone like give spare change to someone in need or make dinner for my family, I always feel better because it is making someone else feel happy.
To put a smile on someone’s face is free. Send a random text to a friend you don’t talk to very often, give someone a compliment, buy that coworker a cup of coffee in the morning, clean up around the house to surprise your significant other when they come home. The world could use a few more smiles and you could be the cause of them!
