As said by Aesop, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” I believe in kindness.
There are so many ways people show kindness. For example, my neighbor, who we share our front lawn with decided to mow the lawn one day. It wasn’t a big gesture ,but the fact that our neighbor went out of their way to do that made my dad’s day as he had a lot of work to get done that day.
There’s also other, smaller ways to spread kindness too like giving someone a compliment or smiling or waving at them. Even making a new friend or inviting someone to eat lunch with you is spreading kindness. It wasn’t until after that day that I realized that kindness, whether intentional, unintentional, or on the spot, it can brighten someone’s day.
I have my fair share of kind-hearted people in my life varying from friends, family members, even teachers that serve as examples of kindness.
I strive to be kind to others so that I can be a good example to someone else.
These people in my life have also shown me that it doesn’t take much to be kind. And their genuine personalities they hold make them seem like they have a big heart. These kind people in my life have also helped me change a lot into a better and kinder person. At the end of the day, I strive to be as kind hearted to others so I can serve as a good example to someone else.
Not many people know about this holiday, but February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day.
In my opinion, although it is an unofficial holiday, I think this holiday should be more widely known and celebrated around the world. This day is dedicated to celebrating and encouraging kindness. If this holiday was celebrated around the world, there would be so much more happiness and positivity in the world.
Kindness is such a powerful thing. Think about it. When you show kindness, it makes a difference. It can make your day brighter. Or make life more enjoyable. Even one act of kindness can cause a chain reaction of kindness to come. It is important to be kind because you never know what someone may be going through right now.
One thing I hope, you can take away from this is that kindness is a precious gift that shouldn’t be taken for granted, but spread onto the next person you meet.
