Acts of Kindness

Another blogger told us about a memory where a elderly woman was handing out roses, and kindness. I think that is something we are all capable of. Smiling at someone, and it is infectious. Hopefully that smile will be passed along, making their day better.

There have been days when I couldn’t find the change for the car park (most pay by card) When someone just hands over a pound, when they see you are struggling, I give a welcome thank you. If I am in a similar position, when I have change in my pocket, I could pay it forward.

I am part of a local Facebook group, when you can swap items. No one is allowed to profit, just a place where you can help someone. When you need something, there is always someone you can go to. I think it is a nice way to help each other.

I go to car boots, markets, where they sell toys, clothes (children’s) What is that old saying, what can be seen as rubbish, can also be seen as a much needed item. I have brought better clothes in a car boot, than I can ever find in a shop. Yes, it is pre-owned, but that shouldn’t matter when paying it forward.

As a child, my parent couldn’t afford to buy me the latest craze, but I consider myself lucky. I learnt that nothing is ever promised, and don’t expect something for nothing. My first pay check and I got my parents a wooden, ornate clock. I remember that because I was so proud to be able to give them the present.

Paying it forward, it is a good thing to do, because by helping each other, we can make the world spin that little bit smoother.

  1. It’s not always what we say, but what we do that “keeps the light on” in the world. My daughter too bought us a present with the first bit of money she earned! That still means so much to us.
