Acts of Kindness
At this time of year, we’re a little more sensitive, and a little more aware of the people around us. The season may even inspire us to be more kind than usual, and isn’t that a nice thing? I came across an organization that promotes kindness all year round. It’s called The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. On their website they have all kinds of ideas for ways that we can practice kindness in our home, school, workplace or community. There are even lesson plans for teachers, and it’s all free of charge. The philosophy of the foundation is that as people tap into their own generous human spirit and share kindness with one another, they discover for themselves the power of kindness to effect positive change. When kindness is expressed, healthy relationships are created, community connections are nourished, and people are inspired to pass kindness on.
