Random acts of kindness

"What you focus on expands".  When I finally "got it" I realized that this quote may be the most important truth in my life.  It works in so many ways but right now I want to focus on all the little acts of kindness I receive every day.  When I am saying a silent "Thank you." for the smile from the toddler in front of me at the long check out line, it's hard to notice the grumpy, pushy guy behind me.  But I did notice, so I said "you look like you're in a hurry, wanna go in front of me?"  He smiled, declined and lost his grumpy look.

 

How many times did you complain today?  What if instead, you focused on the many positive random acts of kindness you received?  They are all around us.  FOCUS on them and watch them expand!

Good Thursday morning Marian Goetzinger -

It's true when we pay it forward even in the smallest way it can change not only our attitude but those around us.  Good job and thanks for the early morning motivation.

I have always been a believer in Random Acts of Kindness.

If everyone just held one door each day  or acknolwedged  a stranger in passing with a smile... just think of the impact this would have on the world.
