I really like this week. It’s funny but I came up with a random act of kindness business, app and ecosystem idea a number of years ago. I even pitched it to a superstar. Point being, random acts of kindness have always been a part of me.
Giving to get just makes sense. Now I have valid science send data to back me up. That’s powerful.
It has been hard, however, to do some in secret. Doing kind things comes naturally. I hope that doesn’t come off like bragging. I just like the feeling it gives and that comes from giving of yourself. I actually like to do things without recognition but at times I have felt that I didn’t want someone to get the wrong idea. I learned a lesson once when I tried to leave chocolate for a girl I had just met but she didn’t appreciate it. It was too much too soon. 🙂
Last night, the woman in front of me was standing and had placed her iPad on her seat. I noticed it and just before she sat on it I was able to grab it. I apologized so she didn’t think I was being fresh. It was such a great feeling. I know that she was happy as well.
I have found that when you feel that you are low, doing something for some else can be a great way to improve your mood and outlook. And if you make part of who you are good things will come from it. I have no idea when or how but that’s not the point. You do because it’s the right thing to do. When it comes to random acts of kindness–a little dab will do ya.
