“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”
With all of the anger and sadness that continues to dominate social media and the news as a whole, we must remember that a random act of kindness can do wonders for your soul. In today’s quote Princess Diana reminds us of kindness and the power it can have in our life and the lives of others. A random act of kindness is not planned or thought out in advance. It is something that is just done by one person for another with no expectation of a reward or wanting anything in return. It’s as simple as telling someone they look nice today, opening the door for them or helping an elderly neighbor by cutting their lawn. Just letting someone else know that they matter to you can do wonders for their own mental well being.
Kindness is often not as publicized as it should be because I am sure there are lots of kindness going around. We need to recognize it more and celebrate it more. Let that be the main headlines instead of all of the negativity that continues to take over the world’s social media feeds. Enough is enough. Kindness has as much of a chance to pay it back to you ten fold, much more so than the negative and unkind acts we are seeing today. Be the change you wish to see in there world. It all starts with you.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
