    I Took The Cash And Ran

    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...

    Whenever

    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...

    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

    This kid (23 years old) came into my practice

    one day with an infection. His parents are drug addicts so he was the primary care giver of four younger siblings. Essentially this kid had four kids at age 23! Not fair right? He wasn't angry about it. He was happy to handle the siblings and from what I saw in the kids...

    Once I was walking around

    and I saw an elderly woman with one arm in a sling in her driveway pulling weeds so I stopped and started pulling them too. I didn't ask for anything and told her she could go in and I'd pull them all for her. When I was done she didn't know how to thank me and told me I'm an...

    A dear sweet, young girl I met at a local

    social meeting, won my affection! She reminded me of myself, but almost twenty years younger. The more I got to know her the more I listened to the trials going on in her life. One day as I was grocery shopping, I heard a little voice in my head that reminded me of this sweet...

    I do some crafting due to a Neurological

    condition. Like a lot of people, I got into scarf making. I take a gift bag with a scarf in it & a card that says, "You have been gifted ! please pay it forward in some way ! Have a great day" ! I take them when we go out & just randomly pick a Lady to give it to.

    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...

    Every Act Of Kindness Counts!

    There are probably many people out there who share the regret of not having enough time - or not putting enough time in to volunteerism. There are also those who never even stop to think about it - who don't hold a door for the person behind them - or help an elderly person load...

    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. :)

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Lined up at the queue,

    waiting for my turn to pay. At the neighbouring cashpoint, I notice a group moving together in unison: a thin woman of about 30, two young children clinging to her dress and a young girl of about 16. They were speaking a language I couldn't identify. I observed them as the young...

    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.ย  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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
