Start a Movement of Nice
As the saying goes, “just do it.” Reach down into your heart, take a risk, break the norm of watching and just do it. Take some action, no matter how small, to make someone’s day a little bit brighter and make someone smile.
What a nice habit that would be. What a great hobby—collecting acts of kindness, straight from the heart, and expecting nothing in return.
How much do you think acts of kindness add to the value of you and nurture your own soul? What’s wrong with being nice, kind, caring? What’s wrong with compassion? Absolutely nothing, as the song goes. I bet it will move you as much as it will them.
Allow yourself the privilege of putting a creative thought in to action and watch for the opportunity to be kind. I promise you it is there every day. Just look for it. I promise you the opportunity to warm someone’s heart is just a small comment of appreciation away.Today I will count just how many opportunities were offered to me to make a slight difference. It’s not only strangers I will count. I’ll also look within my own circle, my own home, my own family.
Acknowledge another human being. Help someone struggling in life. As the saying goes, “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” So, clear your head and find that opportunity to creatively pick up someone’s spirits. Open a door, help with a task, find a stranger to help. Let’s start a movement of nice.
