Kindness is a Way of Being
Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day in this shining New Year of 2019, and it feels happy, fresh, and hopeful. Kindness is a way of being. A mindset. An intention. Once you set your course of kindness, you begin leading a different life—one filled with so much more love. This way of living is based on empathy, and empathy is certainly a form of loving-kindness. When you show loving-kindness to others, it makes them feel good, and it makes you feel good, too.

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed with everyone and everything we must deal with each day, especially when things are rough, and we are tired, and just want to get home and crawl into bed.

But showing kindness alleviates a lot of this stress. It can even change the energy around you instantly. Once you make up your mind to be kind, you’ll be looking for ways to show kindness, and that will fill you with joy that lasts a lifetime. Why not take the first step on Random Acts of Kindness Day?
There Are Many Ways to Show Kindness
There are countless ways to show kindness on Random Acts of Kindness Day and beyond. Think of the loving things people have done for you in your life that made you feel seen, appreciated, validated, and most of all cared about too.
Small Acts of Kindness
- Be an example of loving-kindness on social media, especially to people you don’t know. You may not realize how healing your positive words can be to them.
- Make a point to give positive feedback to a store employee who gives you great service, and to their manager. This includes positive Yelp reviews too.
- Take food to your local police station. Be sure to include plastic forks, cups, napkins, etc., as they will need them.
- It is true loving-kindness to give any care you can to the stray animals near you. Leave food out for them and give them fresh water to drink too.
- Wave at drivers who let you merge into their lane. This makes them feel acknowledged.
- Leave inspirational cards wherever you feel guided. A random note of encouragement can make anyone’s day on Random Acts of Kindness Day or any day for that matter.
- Tip your server as generously as you can. Their job is certainly hard, and they always need the cash, oftentimes to just be able to pay their rent.
- Donate your money, time or gently used items to a worthy cause. Everything helps.
Have you ever asked someone for advice and support and it felt as if they were just handing you clichés and platitudes? Or worse, did they just tell you to get over it? It certainly didn’t feel very loving or helpful, did it? If someone is hurting and they come to you, do your best to listen deeply—both to what they are saying and not saying. Let your heart be your guide, and ask Spirit to give you the right words also. This will aid you in showing empathy, compassion, and understanding, and help you say what will truly uplift them too.
Simple acts of courtesy may seem unimportant to some, but they certainly help show kindness on Random Acts of Kindness Day and any other day of the year. Something as easy as being patient, or putting your cell phone away, or offering your seat to someone who needs it shows thoughtfulness and caring.
If you do something nice for someone, and they show zero gratitude or appreciation or are rude about it, don’t let their negativity infect you. Carry on being kind to people, even if people aren’t courteous to you in return because you’re making the world better. And who knows what the unkind person might learn from your act of loving-kindness?
You shouldn’t have to look too hard to find something beautiful or unique about someone. Whether it’s their eyes, their fashion sense, or their knack for homemade gifts, make it a point to compliment them. Pay compliments often and sincerely.
Lastly, remember that forgiveness is an act of kindness to others, and to yourself.
May 2019 be wondrously kind to you.
