Randomly doing or saying kind things are my absolute favorite! It’s so joyful to do something kind for another person…especially those which are so unexpected and catches someone by complete surprise. Kind gestures or words can uplift another in ways which cannot even be measured.  It literally can make someone’s day!  We really just don’t know what someone is going through in their life, and having someone do something kind and unexpected can change their mindset and have a rippling effect. Think of the times when someone has made you feel special and appreciated. Doesn’t this motivate you to pay it forward? Get in the habit of doing something kind daily for someone else and it will fill and expand your own heart.
