I had to be the first to respond. Q knows I agree with this big time. There are so many things in this world that we do now because we can not because we should. I have to rush off to work but I could talk about this for hours.

Witnessing random acts of kindness has to be one of my favorite things to see. It could be as little as seeing someone help walk an elderly person across the street, or a bus driver waiting a few more seconds at the bus stop because they noticed someone running to catch it. Those simple acts of kindness can truly make someone’s day.

Sadly, I cannot think of an act of kindness that I have personally witnessed. But I am grateful that I was able to do a few😀

My sister sent me a mug describing her thankfulness for our sisterhood…. just because. Nothing better than sending and receiving a token of love for no reason other thank than your gratitude for that person.

Yes, just a few weeks ago my son’s tire came off his car. A kind man stopped to help us. That was awesome.

The first acts of kindness that popped into my head were the first grade girls at a small outdoor birthday party I was helping out at. One girl went out of her way to be inclusive to the shy girl. I know this doesn’t exactly fit the “random acts of kindness” definition, but it was still kind and made me smile.

Acts of kindness. I’ve learned to condition myself to see things from a perspective of gratitude. With that perspective it allow me to see acts of kindness more often. So just hearing good morning from a stranger when walking into a store is a act of kindness I’ve learned to appreciate.

That’s a great perspective! Simple pleasantries are totally an act of kindness in my book too!

The part in the video where he said the attention span of the average adult is 1 second less than a goldfish got me laughing  😂 . Random acts of kindness can be so small, yet so impactful. This message has inspired me to do one random act of kindness today.

But besides that, a random act of kindness I do everyday is clean up after my cousins so my aunt and uncle don’t have to. My cousins are three and two years old and run around throwing things, and mess up the entire house so it is a pretty big tedious to clean up all of their toys.

That’s very kind Sidd. I’m sure your aunt and uncle are very appreciative.

Simple acts of generosity make me smile and remind me that there are good people everywhere. For example, holding the door for a stranger or letting the other car go first.

I’ve watched this video! I like the video when he talked about the school system too.

Yes once when I was little the lunch lady felt bad because on free and reduced lunch you can’t get any of the special drinks or snacks. She knew I stayed after school for sports so she would give me one of those special snacks for after school.

I see random acts of kindness more often than not. Holding the door for someone is a very simple one.
