Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a type of world where everyone said sweet words, doors were always held open, there was no bullying, and peace reigned supreme? Sure, that’s a dream world. But it’s one you can at least aim for in your school, home, and neighborhood. By showing respect and empathy, you can have a huge impact, turning those words into acts of kindness, Julie Kaufman of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation in Denver says, “When you do something for others, it makes you feel good, it benefits both the giver and the receiver.” Those great feelings can snowball into having those around you wanting to do kind things.
Kindness is an internal quality we all can strive to achieve. The best way to teach and share kindness it to be an example. It’s important to show people we care. It’s the small things we do every day that are the most important. You don’t need to be creative, have a big budget, ore heaps of bright ideals to show someone you care for them.
