↑ An example of what is NOT a true act of kindness – even if it is just a teeny bit funny. ↑

I’ve managed to fit in a few random acts of kindness, nothing super huge or grand, just small scale RAK’s.

  1. I helped an older woman unload her grocery basket at the store. She was a bit hunched over and seemed to be struggling, so I just started helping her. I’ve found that if you ask someone if they want help, they’ll often just say “No thank you.” but if you just step forward with a smile and start helping they’ll let you help, and be grateful for it. While this was just a small gesture, it still felt good to know I helped someone in need.
  2. I found a parking meter that didn’t spit out paper tickets, but rather was the old school type where you feed the coins and the time increases. So I popped in a few quarters on a meter that was about to expire. Good deed done, that probably never got noticed. That’s okay, because I know and my 4 year old saw me do it. I’m happy to know I’m teaching him how to be kind, by example.
  3. At the mall yesterday I complimented a lady on her hair, and she got the biggest smile ever. Made me smile too.

And that completes my random acts of kindness for the past few days. What kind things have you done lately? Please share.
