We often think of kindness as a random act of kindness done for another person or a donating time to a volunteer effort. Kindness comes in many other forms that you can do by yourself everyday. Smile, stand up for someone in defense, give a compliment, smile more, ask someone how you can help them, send a kind note, offer to help someone who is sick or has trouble with mobility, or send up an extra prayer.
Make a commitment to kindness as one of your goals for this year. Plan to set aside a day once a month to volunteer. Help someone by yourself or serve as part of a volunteer team. On a daily basis, make a commitment to try to be kind to one person a day, in a big or small way. In November we shared a video on How-To Make a Kindness Journal. If you haven’t started one, you might consider getting a journal or calendar and begin a journey of kindness this year. Notice all of the ways you make a difference over the course of the next 12 months. Kindness multiples, as one life affects another.
