We all like when someone we know does something nice for us, don’t we ?
We all like to feel special even if it is just for a few moments. Just imagine if
a complete stranger did a random act of kindness to you. In today’s face- paced
cynical world some people may ask ” OK, what is the catch? ” Why would a stranger do something nice for me for absolutely no reason ? That kind of questioning is normal, but we can turn that around because we are better than that. Doing a random act of kindness feels so good on both ends, the person doing the act and the person receiving the act get pure joy.
Try it just one time, do something nice for someone for absolutely no reason and watch the joy you will get from it. During this holiday season let us all try to think of others. Here are 10 things you can do this season and all year long.
1.) Smile at 10 strangers.
2.) Surprise a retail cashier with a lottery ticket.
3.) Let someone in front of you in line.
4.) Return shopping carts for other people.
5.) Genuinely thank the store employees.
6.) Add an item to your shopping cart for someone in need.
7.) Hold the door open for someone with full hands.
8.) Buy a cup of coffee for Salvation Army bell ringers.
9.) Pick up some rubbish in the road which would otherwise be lying around.
10.)Compliment a work colleague for their excellence.
And we had to just add this last one for good luck,
11.) Next time you see a security guard, thank him/ her for their work.
