My neighbor and I like to chat about gardening and the weather, always a smile when we see each other. So when I found out his father died, I wanted to do something to show I cared. I gave a card and muffins and walked them over. My heart blossomed with happiness and I knew I wanted to do it again.
It made me think of expanding my thoughtfulness repertoire beyond people I knew.
Have you ever seen the Liberty Mutual Commercials? I love them. People helping others: selflessly, without expecting thanks in return, and inspiring others to pay it forward. I could do random acts of kindness like this. I hope you’ll be inspired too.
