    A Simple Act Of Kindness

    The Boutique

    There is a lovely little boutique in our local shopping centre that I hadn't visited in a while. I bought my Christmas Day outfit there and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. In fact he selected the top that matched the long skirt I had already chosen. He then asked me to...

    It is true when people say

    My Belief Is based On Experience

    I can honestly say that it's a two way street for me. I believe in being kind to others, but if people are kind to me it goes a long way also.

    The Cafe

    I was shopping alone when suddenly someone tweaked me on the shoulder. I froze. Who could this be with such a personal touch? It was my Mum! She laughed. "Who were you expecting?" We decided to go for a coffee but she told me if I gave her the money (I was paying) she'd pay and...

    A Smile For You Is A Smile For Me :]

    I believe kindness does go a LONG way. I always try to be kind to everyone, even people I don't knoe. I have even stoped complete starangers on the street, that seemed upset, to ask them if they were okay. I think that if someone is going through a really rough time, sometimes...

    It's very difficult to do a lot of the time but,

    I try not go judge someone by their appearances, or their words and behaviour, I try to add a little kindness to my thoughts. People are complex in their reactions to what they perceive, nothing should be taken easy at face value, because life isn't like that!
