Let’s be honest…
The fast-paced world we live in and the sad stories we hear on the news, sometimes sucks our attention and makes us forget how important it is to choose to be kind even when our world seems to be unkind.
But what we sometimes don’t realize is that if we all choose to see the abundance that surrounds us and we all put a little bit of effort into making the world a better place, we could actually live much happier lives and be surrounded by much friendlier people.
The good news is that kindness is an attribute that can be learned, and by practicing it you’ll not only be improving your own life, but you’ll also be making a contribution to your community and to the world around you.
Pick one of these 27 ways to be kind today (and enjoy how it brightens your day at the same time):
1- If you see garbage, pick it up
2- Send flowers to a friend
3- Express gratitude to someone who’s made a difference in your life
