Each day when we walk out of our homes, we can make the decision to help others just a little: to hold the door open, pick up a glove someone may have dropped, help someone cross the road. We may think of these things as little and inconsequential. However, one small act of kindness does have a ripple effect.
The following video shows how the act of helping others can gain momentum and become something greater than that small gesture we have made. (Warning: you may be in need of a kleenex when you watch this).
Often I do these acts without thought. Now I am wondering how my small acts have snowballed. I do know that I am always grateful for the small kindnesses that are offered to me – especially when I am in need of the help.
Have you been the recipient of a kindness today? What was it?
