I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

A great act of kindness

on February 25, 2013

Kindness can be contagious.  When you do something nice for someone else, it usually makes them feel good and in return makes you feel good.  Of course, there are always exceptions to every rule and there are people in the world who are just so miserable that they wouldn’t crack a smile for the nicest, sweetest person of all.   For those few people, they probably don’t trust anyone and it might take a while to get through to them, so keep trying if you know anyone like that.

There are all sorts of things we can do for other people:

  • smile and say hello
  • send a card, email or text
  • treat a friend to lunch
  • complement people
  •  help an elderly neighbour cut their lawn or shovel their snow
  • tell people that you appreciate them
  • hold the door open for someone
  • send an anonymous gift to someone in need

Today I watched a video about a man, Sir Nicholas Winton, who did a HUGE act of kindness 50 years ago and he totally deserves being rewarded for his actions.  I was very moved by what he did for so many people.  Amazing man!
