Be kind and generous and reap the rewards
Act of Kindness is good for the soul
You know if you are kind to people it can actually reduce stress, anxiety, etc. A selfless act is one of the best way’s to feel you are wanted and needed in this world, what a great feeling.
Can you remember when someone has been kind to you? I can’t remember exact details but I do remember the feeling, it perked me up and changed my outlook for the day, giving a feeling of being noticed and kind of makes you feel good, changes your perspective on life.
Same happens when you are kind to others, might be a small thing like opening a door or giving a compliment, even a hug, it can make someone’s day improve, there are so many ways you can perform an act of kindness and in turn, you will feel good.
How do you rate yourself
Let me ask you? what do you rate yourself from 1 to 10 how kind are you?
I have found that people who suffer from depression, anxiety, negativity etc. actually have a huge amount of kindness, I’ve seen down-and-out people risk their lives to save others, just for that short period they actually feel good, feel wanted, alive, so why do they revert back to being isolated? Generally, they feel safe, too scared to come out of their shell, become numb, no feeling, it a safety blanket, it’s so how sad. If you see a person like that, try and build the courage to sit with them ask them and say hello strike up a conversation, Yep they might tell you their life story, so what you have just done the best thing in the world, you may even have saved their life and picked up their spirit, If you are that type of person I rate 10 out of 10 in my books.
I might seem to be getting off the topic a bit but there is merit to my suggestions, Kindness removes those negative thoughts and of course good for the soul. So just imagine the people you meet every day all of the sudden became kind in spirit,” wow” that truly would be a sight to behold, but one person kindness triggers another person’s kindness and then kindness spreads. So it a simple process, change somebodies mood it can make their day, chances are they are feeling happier and they pay kindness forward.
So are you going to try to show kindness more often? will you be able to rate yourself 10 out of 10?
Kindness from the heart
Being kind, of course, is a wonderful and grateful gesture and makes you feel good, but if you can give kindness from the heart that’s where the big bang comes from, your soul swells with emotion, you feel enlightened, carefree, its amazing feeling and as mentioned in previous posts you as a person beams out emotion, people are instantly drawn to you, even try to help in your crusade of kindness, what an absolute fantastic feeling that is. Have you ever given kindness from the heart?
Stories of kindness
When something tragic in the world happens and you witness the devastation, people suffering, homes lost, family members possibly missing, animals suffering, you can’t help to feel sorry for them but in reality, we simply turn off the TV and continue to live our daily life now that’s sad. However, some of us feel helpless that we can’t be there to support them and have nothing to give the only prayer, some donate money, food, clothing etc. when we see this kindness happening it lifts our spirits knowing there is help and hope to all those suffering, when so many people get together it sways governments to act, that strength of so many being kind changes something in all of us, how lucky are we to be able to have feelings.
