Moments of Kindness

Describe a moment of kindness, between you and someone else — loved one or complete stranger.

Kindness is the act or the state of being kind, being marked by good and charitable behavior, pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions

Kindness is, in my view, the one thing of which there is way too little of in this world.  I have shared some acts of kindness with you in the past.  The top two, which most moved me, are:

An unexpected act of kindness towards me

My act of kindness towards an unknown man

Aesop said “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted”.  How true is that!

We often think of kindness as being huge acts, which would require time or money.  Kindness, however, can be shown in so many ways which would require very little of you:

  • Kindness is letting someone else take the cab you just hailed.
  • Kindness is smiling at someone who is obviously experiencing some kind of emotional turmoil.
  • Kindness is buying bread for the homeless person you passed on your way to the shop.

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!
