If you got here by searching for random acts of kindness ideas on Google then let me say my heart just swelled up a bit. I fully believe that we can greatly enrich both the lives of others and ourselves by practicing random acts of kindness. You never know when that seemingly small comment you make or action you take will have a far-reaching impact on the other person. It makes me giddy just thinking about it.
What I especially like about random acts of kindness is that they don’t have to be anything big. I make it a point each day to say nice thoughts when I think them. So if I see a cute dress, outfit or shoes for example, I say something. I want to get those positive thoughts out into the world, not just locked up inside my head. I say please and thank you, I ask cashiers how their day is going, I try to tell people how I feel about them at any point I have a positive thought about that person. I want people to feel good and I try to be mindful that my actions have the ability to sway a person in both positive and negative directions.
One of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou sums it up nicely…
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
