A simple act of kindness is worth more than the finest gold. Often are times when a person will need an act of kindness to make their world okay. It is a distasteful thing to note that we are living in a world where everyone is only concerned about themselves and their needs. Humanity has deteriorated to a point where if someone shows you an act of kindness is because they want something from you. Even so, we can all be different. Kindness is a precious gift that we should all tap into. All day long, we are surrounded by opportunities for kindness. We always have the chance to make the world a better place with our kindness.
Seize Opportunities for Kindness and Change the World
Lucius Annaeus Seneca said something very striking. These words keep ringing in my heart every time, and it motivates me to take all opportunities for kindness and change the world.
“Wherever there is a human being; there is an opportunity for kindness.”
― Lucius Annaeus Seneca
There are always more than enough opportunities for showing kindness everywhere we are because we are always surrounded by people. Many people pass up the chance to show kindness because they feel they are not obligated. Because of this, people have forgotten that there are kind people on earth. This reminded me of a time when I helped an old lady carry her groceries to her car, and she said she did not know kind people existed in my generation. This saddened my heart to hear, but I knew what she meant. We have to be a people with change. Showing kindness is the purest form of love and appreciation for humanity. Let us remind the world of kindness.
It Starts with You
Everyone is always busy trying to make ends meet and survive through life. You may also be in this cycle, and sometimes you may desire a simple act of kindness from anyone to make the day better and easier. Just like you may desire kindness, everyone else desires it. Be the bigger person and be a dispenser of kindness. Let it start with you, and you will change the world. Do you remember what Barack Obama said?
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
― Barack Obama
Make Someone’s Day Better
We are surrounded by chances for showing kindness everywhere we go and everywhere we are. All we have to do is take up the chance and act on it. You can rest be assured that you will make someone’s day better. You will always be touching a life every time you seize the chance for showing kindness.
Kindness is a virtue that so many people do not practice. Even so, you can always show forth what others do not want to show forth and stand out. No one can be forced to be kind, but they can be inspired by someone else. Be the source of inspiration and take up all opportunities for kindness; be an example.
