“Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”
Whether it’s an intentional or spontaneous act of kindness, it is never senseless nor is it futile. The ripples of kindness and compassion have the ability to transcend because even if the receiver shows no sense of gratitude, the act itself can be beneficial to the giver. Acts of kindness not only gives a sense of accomplishment but also a sense of confidence, happiness and being in control and the optimism that your act can be contiguous because the random act of kindness can be paid forward.
Life can sometimes trap us in daily busyness and we get so caught up in our lives that we forget that even the most simple things in life can make a significant impact on the lives of others. My random act of kindness for today are these four daily reminders to self of how important a simple act can be in the life of someone else. So pay it forward!
