Random Acts of Kindness

One time at a Speech and Debate tournament in my junior year, a girl I had met in a round gave me a slip of paper that said "Your smile is awesome - you should show it off more often. Pass this on to the next person you see with a great smile. #RandomActsOfKindness." It was one of the sweetest things and it definitely helped me smile a bit more (that tournament was a particularly stressful one). In a way, I have always held the idea of Random Acts of Kindness, but I hadn't known it was a real "thing" until that year. I really love that idea - just randomly doing something nice for someone, whether you know them or not. 

This morning I was really tired, stressed, and a bit upset, but my day brightened up a little bit when I found out my family had sent me flowers! They even added our dog's name onto the card, how cute is that?! Sometimes the best Random Acts of Kindness, however, are the simplest. Some of my favorites are buying dessert for a stranger, taking in your neighbor's trash cans from the curb, and giving "Thank You" notes to people working in the dining hall. The official Random Acts of Kindness website even has a huge list (with filters!) of little things you could do to try to make somebody else's day better. A common thing to do is trying to do at least one act a day. What are some of your favorite Random Acts of Kindness?

Catch you next time.

  1. These are all great ideas! I especially like the one about giving a Thank You note to people working in the dining hall, because they work so hard!
