Why I love Random Acts of Kindness

“The best portion of a good man’s life: His little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.” – William Wordsworth

“No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.” – Aesof

Watching Random Acts of Kindness videos is by far one of my favorite pass times. But, not just because of the feel good moments. I love it because it inspires me to get out and do something good for a perfect stranger.

There are things that everyone can do to improve the lives of others. The most important things are those little surprises of kindness.

I think these mean the most to me and inspire me so much because it really makes the world feel so small. It makes you care about a person you’ve never seen before or might never see again. It puts compassion and humility into the world and makes it a completely awesome place to be.

The news covers some horrific and unfortunate tragedies. As we all know, at times they are very hard to watch. Things like violence, cruelty, and murder make me confused and sick to my stomach.

But, as bad as these things are there are always counteracting stories and people who will never stop being good to others. These are the people I want to highlight. These are the people I want to dedicate this post to. These are the people I admire whole heartedly.

I hope everyone wants to be a little more like these incredible people who will help you in a time of need, surprise you when you’re feeling down, give a selfless random act of kindness to help someone they may never know.

In my opinion, the idea of doing something small yet kind for someone else for the pure joy of brightening their day is one of the greatest pleasures of life. And watching these heart warming videos on YouTube of people doing random acts of kindness takes second best. The internet is filled with intense videos of human compassion that will absolutely leave you speechless (even me–and that’s hard to do!) and wanting more.

So go on and check it out. Go get inspired. Go do great things.
