You know one of the most beautiful things about kindness is that, no matter how small, they always brighten someone’s day.
Just think about it. When was the last time you were a recipient of little, random act of kindness? Or, when was the last time you offered others these kind acts?
Something tells me it’s that time of year where people embark on a journey to make an improvement in their lives and in themselves. Some people practice these acts of kindness to reach out and help others. And these help and kindness need not necessarily be found in large or grand gestures. Something as simple such as holding the door or letting someone in front of you can make all of the difference in someone's day. Also, shout out to an international student who held the door for me this morning at the bakery. That was really nice.
I just love how these small, random acts of kindness are the best kinds of surprises. I could be having the best day, or I could be having the worst day, and they just add a little light to my life.

You’d never expect where or from whom these acts will come. That random girl in front of you at the supermarket could be the girl who holds the door for you, when your hands are full. The guy that you never spoke to in class might offer his notes to you. The person you met in the printing shop might spare you that bit of change you need to pay. My day is made when someone offers these kind acts. I’d tell my family or my close friends to tell them about the kind stranger who helped me. In a way, I do wish to repay them or pass that kindness on to someone else who crosses my path. These small deeds go even further on bad days.
Earlier, there were three cats fighting over for some share of food. Two of them seemed to be getting the share they want, but the other one seemed to struggled. That sweet creature didn’t get a chance to eat anything. And since I had a bread that was uneaten, I figured that this cat needed the bread more than I did. So I fed it, and just watching it nibbling away the bread made me smile. I don’t know, I just felt like I have made the cat’s day. It felt good.
My point is that, you could improve someone’s day, even if it’s just a wee bit. You could be making a difference. I mean, for all you know, the person you helped might be having the worst day. Take heed, no deed will ever be seen as too small or not good enough.
