I Perform Random Acts Of Kindness

Sharing stories of doing something nice all on your own 32,125 People

    I grew up listening to the following words

    that my mother would often say to me, 'When you help someone, don't let your left hand know what your right hand does.' It was after her death I came to know that her demise, besides her family, affected lot of people - whether blood relatives or not.

    A Stranger's Gift....

    It wa just last week when I finally decided to act on my plans. While I've always been someone that just loves doing something nice for another because it feels so good, this one night I decided to do something that a little different. I pulled up at the petrol station, filled up...

    This morning, on my way to have a manicure/pedicure done, I stopped at the Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) to take out some cash. There was a short queue ahead of me. When the man infront of me finished making his transaction, I stepped forward and inserted my card into the...

    On my way to work I noticed a homeless man

    huddled up by the train station. Around eight hours later I was making my way back home, and he was still there in the same place, just staring at the floor. It made me so sad I quickly bought a bag of crisps and some bottled water from the vending machine inside. I had a bit of...

    I talked to a guy at work today

    who I know, about his guitar he had at work. The guitar was beat up and had many things wrong with it. He still talked about how he loved it and wanted to fix it up. I have known this kid a few months. In the past few months he has had a rough go at life. He found out his mom...

    I had a sweet and very simple experience today!

    I was at a pedestrian stoplight and made eye contact with a very stern, rude looking woman! It looked like she was glaring at me but I ignored that fact and instinctively smiled at her just because this is what I naturally do when I make eye contact. Anyhow after we crossed...

    Cure For Depression...

    I act on every kind thought that enters my head. I figure it came for a reason. If you are blue, find someone who's worse off than you , And make their day. I'm happy when I take the importance away from myself. Life is a circle game ( thank you Joni Mitchell ) When I die, I...

    Nameless Strangers and Timeless Lessons.

    .. An old man used to go for a long walk, passing by our house. This happened many years back, when I was a teenager. We stayed at a place where it was very windy, we had a dooryard and we enjoyed chatting in the evenings. It so happened, my grandfather bumped into the same old...

    and as I was leaving the parking lot, I saw a woman walking with two big garbage bags of clothes. It looked like she was struggling to carry them.. So God strongly encouraged me to stop and help her. I wasn't sure so I kept driving but God didn't let me forget about her. So I...

    Because, well, everyone should now

    and then. It's therapeutic for the doer just as it's beneficial to the person receiving the kind act. Never hurts to take a break from being absorbed in one's own world to just have a heart. It's eye opening sometimes to see through someone else's reality when one steps out of...

    If I come into your life,

    I want to leave you feeling better. I believe in being kind and thoughtful in everything I do. A compliment, holding open a door for someone, even if it's as little as a smile, I want to be a light in darkness.

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!
