kindness /ˈkʌɪn(d)nəs/ noun = the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate
it’s something i think all of us can do. we are all capable of doing an act of kindness. i wonder why it’s called a random act of kindness. is this an indiction that we aren’t kind as part of our inherent nature, and that’s why it’s random?
random /ˈrandəm/ adjective = made, done, or happening without method or conscious decision.
what if we weren’t randomly, unconsciously deciding to be kind, but we intentionally choose to be kind to someone every day?
it could be as small as a smile to a stranger that you walk past at the street, a gentle hello or thank you to the bus driver, or even a loving embrace to someone who is feeling low. i know a friend who instead of spending five minutes on social media, would send out a short sms/whatsapp message to friends to let them know what they meant to him.
what’s one deliberate act of kindness you can do today? it might cost you your a fraction of your time today, but isn’t it worth it?
