"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love." - Saint Basil
Take a couple minutes to think about how the kindness of your family and friends, and even strangers has made a difference in your life. Think about how the smallest acts of kindness youвЂ™ve received have made an impact on you. Well, you can become part of the circle of kindness. Just make a commitment to creating more kindness in your everyday life. Take some time to jot down all the kindness ideas you can think of - and then perform them!
Once you become more aware of the many ways you can be kind to others, youвЂ™ll be more conscious about how you treat those you come in contact with on a daily basis, and most likely, youвЂ™ll make more of an effort to perform random acts of kindness. With every act you carry out, you'll be contributing to making the world a better place.
Brainstorm and then make a list of all the ways you can practice kindness. Then, set a goal for yourself and work to complete the ideas on the list! Share the list with your friends and encourage them to start their own kindness list.
Keep a list of the acts of kindness you see that are performed by those around you. Did a classmate smile at you today? Has someone every held the door for you? Did a friend or parent listen to you last time you were struggling with something? Be inspired by the ways others are kind!
