    I go to Starbucks 6 mornings a week

    and have gotten to know the "core team" pretty well. It's along my morning commute route, so it's always the same time and basically the same employees. This year, I didn't tip all year long. At this location, I learned that all tips are shared with all employees among all...

    One day I was in the drive thru of a popular

    coffee place. The line was so long. I wasn't in any hurry. I noticed a car coming to the line from a different direction. There was no other way for her to get into the line except wait for an opening, which didn't seem possible because no one wanted to let her into the line...

    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...

    A Stranger's Gift....

    Today, I was at the hospital waiting to see the

    doctor. I got sick and it's a sinus infection. So as I was about to exit the hospital, I noticed a woman in a wheelchair struggling to get her wheelchair going. So I helped her by pushing her to where she wanted to go. She had wanted to get to the Tim Horton's inside the...

    She followed the blood stains on the carpet,

    leading her to the hurt one. It was hiding under the chair in the living room. Scared. Shaking. Dying. Surrounded by the fear of death.  The big eyes, pouring the fear out all over its face, trying to look up at her, in agony of not being able to breath; wheezing, struggling...

    Much time has passed

    since I made a "selfish" promise to myself. This promise was/is that on a daily bases I will preform at least one act of kindness. The reason I believe it is selfish is because I believe in karma. What goes around comes around three fold. I never boast or tell anyone when I do...

    One time on the train someone had written

    "inspiration for everyone traveling" and had painted a heart on one of the seats. That's what I call a random act of kindness and it made my day <3

    I don't really see these things as being all that kind, because to me, it's just the way things should be. I hold the door open for people. I help people who have too many things in their hands. I will take the cart from someone who just unloaded it into their car, if I'm on...

    It makes me feel good to make someone else feel

    good. I love smiles, they're the most beautiful thing in the world. Except for flowers, of course. But I think some people don't realize that one act of unnecessary kindness can make someone's day! You never know when they need it. :)

    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.

    I now realize you can't be a nice guy.

    People don't appreciate acts of kindness. I'm tired of hearing I'm too nice. What does that even mean? I'm just a little fed up given so much of myself to self-serving individuals. Basically being kind, caring and loving doesn't seem to be as much fun as being a...

    I firmly believe in paying it forward.

    In my humble opinion if you have a chance to make another person's life just a little better or happier why not do it? If I died tomorrow, I'd want to know that I was able to serve at least one soul in this cruel world in some way or another...

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    I actually love to perform acts of kindness to

    others. I was raised that way by my great parents. A couple of years ago, I had done something that brought love and life to a childless couple. It was a wonderful suggestion brought by my girlfriend and her husband.
