NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Acts of Kindness

By: Kym Grinnage email

If you have been watching our news this week you may have noticed that Sabrina Squire is doing a full week of Acts of Kindness. It reminded me that we should practice our own brand of Acts of Kindness every day.

Thanksgiving and the holiday season remind us that we should be very thankful.  Even if you are not exactly where you want to be in your life right now or it hasn't been the type of year you may have envisioned, there is still always something to be thankful for.

I truly believe that even when it may be difficult to give and share, doing it anyway always returns to you tenfold. Giving and sharing does not just mean giving money or donations, many times it means sharing your time, your thoughts, your wisdom and your love.

We sometimes take for granted the power of a kind word, or deed. There is someone you may encounter everyday that could use a thoughtful word or gesture. So challenge yourself each and everyday to perform random acts of kindness.

People may not always remember what you say or do, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
