No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves ~ By Amelia Earhart.
This morning I posted on twitter about my radio interview in the afternoon and I asked for advice about being interviewed. Then there was many Action of Kindness followed. I received advices and supports from both Twitter and FaceBook. Some of whom I have never spoke with before. These kind people saw the post of “advice for interview.” The thought of the advices came to them, and then they took the Action to write to me with the advice. That was an Act of Kindness.
The holiday is coming soon, and a lot of us have the thought of making a donation to Goodwill, volunteer to feed the homeless at Thanksgiving, adapting a family for Christmas, doing toys for tots or may be going to an elderly neighbor and inviting them over for a visit. Whatever the thoughts might be, choose to take Action on your kind thoughts and you will turn them into Kindness. It will be the best Holiday gift you can give to yourself.
And if you are every having days when you are feeling blue, take an Action of kindness; think of a kind thought about someone and take Action on it. You will be glad you did.
Kindness begins with Action! What do you think?
Imperfect Action is better than No Action.
