Random Acts of Kindness
By definition, a random act of kindness is a non-premeditated, inconsistent action designed to offer kindness towards the outside world.
When we asked our team what a random act of kindness meant to them here is what a few said:
- Doing something for someone without expecting something in return.
- Kindness is the sacrifice of selflessness for another or group of others.
- Helping those in need or someone who needs a smile.
- Selfless acts of beauty, compassion, or niceness.
- Good deeds should be done with intention, not for attention
We see it now more than ever, people doing kind things out of the goodness of their hearts and without provocation. When you are out or even on the phone with a customer service representative, sincerely thank them for addressing your concern. Write a letter to the General Manager of a restaurant letting him/her/they know that your experience was great because of the team members. Next time you see a member of our military, pay for their meal as a thank you for their service. Tipping people in the service industry and extra 5-10% could help them pay an extra expense that month. Let someone cut you in line or give away that primo parking spot at the shopping mall. Shopping local can help save a local ‘mom and pop’ shop. These things matter and impact not just the recipient, but you as well. Even the smallest act of kindness can make a big impact on a person or group of folks. Be kind today and always.
