One of my friends has inspired me to be kinder. I always had felt I was a kind person, but after meeting him I noticed that there is a whole other level of kind that I can aspire to. He picks up things and holds doors even for folks he doesn't know and not just when it's convenient. Almost each time he has a chance to be kind he takes the opportunity. He is also very generous. His grandma always said about food that if there is enough for one, there is enough for all, and I think he lives his life by that motto of sharing and caring. Whenever I think about how kind I could be in this moment, I think about his example and it helps me be the kindest version of myself.
