AOK Thursday: Need Some Ideas?

Your random act of kindness won’t seem quite so “random” if you need to pull an idea from the list, but it’s the kindness that counts! Loki Morgan provides seven excellent places to start:

  1. When you walk past someone look at them and smile.
  2. Pick up trash and litter that you see, even if it is not in your yard.
  3. Hold the door for the person behind you. If you are the recipient of this act of kindness make sure to thank the person. (This is a big bugaboo for me. People who ignore my kindness often get a loud “YOU’RE WELCOME” which never fails to startle. Admittedly, this pettiness on my part diminishes the intended kindness.)
  4. Send a letter to someone you love. Emails do not count for this random act of kindness.
  5. Do extra chores or do a chore that no one in your family likes to do.
  6. Tip your waiter or waitress more than 20%.
  7. When you ask someone how they are doing, listen to what they have to say. (This is another big one for me. My wife, in particular, seems to think “HiHowAreYou” is a single word that doesn’t really require a response.)
