Be Random & Kind
Today is "Random Acts of Kindness Day" and I like it for a few different reasons.I think it's a fun day to think outside of our normal sphere of things that we do each day. I also enjoy the challenge of coming up with new creative ways to make some one else's day a little brighter. I don't think this is a day where people should feel "forced" to be kind to their circle of friends and family and even strangers.
I enjoy today because it gets people communicating and sharing ideas and gestures that can help make the world a little less stressful even for just a few moments. A small act of kindness can give someone who is going through a particularly stressful time a little hope that things will get better.
I'll never forget the time I walked into Inner Diva for a Zumba class during a time when I was experiencing a lot of stress and was greeted with: "I'm so glad to see you! You always make class so much more fun when you're here." I was truly surprised at how that little statement, from my classmate Angela, lifted me up and helped brighten my mood. So, yes I believe in Random Acts of Kindness not just today but everyday.
