In the spirit of giving, think about a gesture of kindness that you can do towards someone you know or to a complete stranger. This gift of kindness or random act of kindness can bring about a positive impact on a person’s mood or spirit. Your effort can even have a far-reaching effect beyond the person you did the act for initially. They can be inspired to pay it forward or take action on something in his or her life that positively influences others.
Try this: To practice kindness, here are some ideas:
- Pay for the person behind you at the drive thru
