More about Acts Of Kindness~~~Susie Austin

“The best portion of a good man’s life:

his little,  nameless, unremembered acts of

Kindness and love.”

William Wordsworth

  

I firmly believe in acts of kindness and I believe it is possible to start little movements wherever we happen to be. It is in our power to change ourselves to become better people and help others by example how to become better as well.

I found a wonderful website called helpothers.org, I encourage you to visit and I think you will enjoy what you find there. I found smile cards and have been having great fun with them. If you find someone having a bad day, maybe the checkout at the grocery store, or the gas station attendant who is usually being harassed for the ever increasing gas prices. Leave behind a smile card which are random acts of kindness and you will become a better person as well. It is wonderful fun and a good feeling to make someone else’s day a bit better.

Yesterday after receiving in excess of 15 inches of snow there were many acts of kindness to talk about. My daughters went to the store and braved the snow to buy a few groceries to settle in for the night. We had already pushed her out of the snow bank once for the day, which was a great lesson on approaching this with a sense of humor. The girls helped push a stuck motorist froe the snow and the driver they had just helped told the girls thanks and she was going to pay it forward!

 It does not take much to help others, and I encourage you today to attempt to make  to a make a difference in others lives. I love doing things anonymously but remember this as well, the most amazing thing is this: not only do you and the person you helped feel better, so does some random person who happened to watch your act of kindness.

Many do not know or have never been taught how to be kind, selfless, or even how to be nice.

It seems simple doesn’t it? Be good, be nice, help others and be happy!
