4 Ways to Share Kindness

4 Simple ways to share kindness

How are you today? I wanted to take a minute to share, A Season of Good through acts of kindness.

Doesn’t that sound fantastic?  It warms my heart just thinking about it.

I realize though, sometimes we have to do more than just think because action is where kindness grows.

Season of Good

A Season of Good begins with sharing kindness through a 4-week period.

It’s a way to push through all the chaos and focus on being kind towards others by setting a positive example.

When you focus on the good – you will find that negativity eventually floods out…

The goal here, is to plant seeds of kindness by improving the foundation in which they grow.

 

Beginning with Week One

Begin week one by taking a moment to smile at the people who pass by.

I learned this years ago from my daughter. When I started following this same method of kindness it was contagious and the smiles that came back my way felt amazing.

For those who didn’t smile back, I was taken to realize they may need prayer.

Sometimes a genuine smile can be just what another person needs to feel uplifted and reminded kindness still exists.

For week one share meaningful smiles to those who pass by.

Week Two we Open Doors

It sounds silly that opening a door for someone can be an act of kindness, but it is…

I love doing this for many reasons, mainly because it’s a nice gesture that takes very little effort.

This is something that Robert and I made sure to teach our kids in their younger years and I’ll never forget the first time we saw them both put it into action.

We were at church, pretty much that odd family out because we “homeschooled” yes, we were that family…

What I remember most about that moment, were the other kids watching our daughter and son.

A week later those same kids chose to open doors for others; it was awesome to witness.

It takes little effort to set a positive example, you just have to decide to do it…

For week two, be kind by opening the door for others.

 

Week Three we Choose to be Neighborly

Choosing to be neighborly is probably the hardest of all because we tend to focus on our tribe of friends and forget about the people standing nearby.

This takes me back to when I was a little girl.  My grandmother whom I reference often was always doing something nice for others.

In fact, she was one to smile, open doors and simply reach out to complete strangers, especially if she was at the grocery store.

It scared me at times because she would invite them to her home for lunch and everybody in the family would say to her, “You can’t do that.”

She just smiled at us without fear and it wasn’t until later in life that I realized what she was doing.

She loved people, it didn’t matter if they were in her tribe, lived next door or were a complete stranger.  She was always there to help others and had this amazing way of seeing good and sharing kindness.

Choosing to be neighborly doesn’t always represent the person who lives next door, it could be the person standing next to you at the post offfice or the one behind you while you’re ordering coffee.

Week three be encouraged to do something nice for someone.

    I have gotten into the habit of making a conscious effort to look at folks in the eye and smile at the grocery store or gas station. It’s always a pleasant surprise when they return the smile. I think it’s easier as you get older, to make the effort of smiling and saying “good day” to strangers. You care less about what people might think.
    Thank you for the reminder about doing random kind acts.
    My tagline for the past few months has been “Go Forth. Do Good.”
