Do An Act of Kindness Every Day

When I first heard Dr. Wayne Dyer talk about this, I remembered the several incidences, in which I had been nice, helpful and supportive of others, sometimes even just by listening well to them. I am the kind of person who wakes every morning with a clear mind, naturally inclined to be in a good mood, and appreciative of sunlight (whenever available). Yet, the events of the day that follow may not necessarily go well. This is where reality kicks in, stress levels rise up, mind preoccupation takes over leading to total exhaustion (mentally and physically) at the end of the day.

Yet, when I wake up again the next morning, I would have forgotten what was preoccupying my mind the night before, and I choose to start my day with a smile and an optimistic aptitude towards life and others. Then, upsetting events happen and so on.

Dr. Dyer’s advice of doing an act of kindness has been one good habit that I had been doing for years without noticing that it had been contributing to my levels of positivity, inner strength, levelheadedness when I needed to make important decisions and renewing my faith in God, fate and mankind.

Seriously, if we commit daily to doing at least one act of kindness to others (even if it means that we let a driver pass before us), we may be amazed at the major positive effect it has over our sense of connectedness to others, to ourselves and to the values that we hold.

Personally, I have found that entering a place with a nice smile and a poised attitude makes a world of difference in the conversations that happen consequently. Big issues turn into smooth solvable ones, and feelings of resistance from my or others’ side seem to fade away, favoring the voice of logic and mutual understanding between us.

For years, I have been practicing starting most of my days with optimism, happiness and a sense of kindness towards myself and others that it had turned into a habit, without me being aware of it, until I read that gesture by the fabulous Dr. Dyer.

In our lives, we have cultivated many habits; some we are aware of and some we are not; some are good, others are not. So how good will it be to cultivate a positive habit (for a change) that has good returns on ourselves as well as others, and refreshes our sense of connectedness?

So what act of kindness have you done today? How did it make you feel?

Here’s a tiny optimistic gesture wishing everyone a very prosperous day ahead and a beginning of a fun weekend!

Be the light you want to have in your life.

Cheers!
