Do Something Unexpected But Nice For Someone Else


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I try to practice random acts of kindness at least once a day. It can be something as small as holding a door open for someone, letting someone get in line in front of you at the market if they have fewer items and you have a full cart, whatever little things you see. It makes people so happy to be treated to an unexpected kindness and reminds me to be more positive throughout my day.

    I try and do this as often as I can. In fact I have challenged my students to do acts of kindness from last Mon. to their Christmas break. We are keeping track and discussing them to encourage those who are hesitating.

    The Golden rule. Do unto others as you would have done unto you. emoticon
