Everything we do in life, both positive and negative, can and will directly impact our future as well as the future of others. Although it may feel at times that we are a small being in a much larger universe, we are actually all connected.
Many people think that the best way to get ahead in life is to put themselves before everyone else. While at times it is necessary to put yourself on the top of your priority list, you still need to make sure to show love and compassion to others.
We all live on Earth together and many of us share the same challenges in life. For this reason it only makes sense that we should band together and help one another instead of trying to brave everything on our own.
In some cases, a simple act of kindness can completely change someone’s life. Something that doesn’t even seem like a big deal to us might possibly be what makes someone else feel as if it is worth continuing to push forward.
Random acts of kindness bring many people blessings, including those who are doing the kind act. We have all heard of karma and I am sure that everyone has experienced at least one situation in their life where the power of karma was evident, whether it was good or bad. We should all know, what comes around goes around. Therefore, the more small acts of kindness we do, the more blessings we will be provided with in life.
Sometimes one of the best blessings in life is knowing that we helped someone else through their struggles. That doesn’t necessarily mean that we should spend all day, everyday, going out of our way to find people to help. You should simply keep your eyes open during the day and wait for an opportunity to help another to present itself.
One idea you may want to consider is volunteering at a soup kitchen or some other facility for the needy. This will offer you the opportunity to conduct acts of kindness while receiving a healthy reality check at the same time. Many of us tend to forget how lucky we really are in life and how blessed we truly are. You may think that your struggles are tough but how do you think the homeless mom feels who has two kids to feed?
Another act of kindness that you may want to consider is taking the time to speak to someone homeless on the street. Chances are that the person you find has not been spoken to like a normal person for quite some time. The simple act of asking them what their name is or how their day is going might completely change their circumstances. For example, that might be the one conversation they needed to feel human again and regain the confidence and drive to change their life entirely! Imagine how much of a blessing it would be for everyone involved if you were to see that same person a few years later in a highly successful position.
The beautiful thing about doing random acts of kindness is the fact that the more you do it the easier it becomes. Sooner or later, it basically becomes second nature. As well, the more acts of kindness you do, the more blessings you will receive in your life.
If you are a person who tends to have a hard time doing random acts of kindness because you never had anybody do it for you, it is highly important that you learn how to change that mindset. Instead of thinking of how things were hard for you, try thinking about how happy it would make you feel to make sure someone else doesn’t have to struggle the way you might have.
One thing that is very important to keep in mind is the fact that you should not be kind to others solely for the anticipation of blessings. We should be kind to one another because the more we help each other, the stronger we all become. Think of the cliché saying from childhood, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link” Well, although it may have been annoying to hear over and over, there is actually quite a bit of truth to that statement, both literally and figuratively speaking.
Another thing to keep in mind is the fact that helping others will help you to help yourself. There can be times in life where certain challenges can be made easier by helping someone else through similar challenges. Simple acts of kindness such as these can provide you with a view of your own situations from an outside of the box perspective which may reveal alternative solutions that you did not see before.
Begin helping others and conducting random acts of kindness whenever it is possible and you will surely be surprised by the blessings that begin to flow into your life and the lives of others as well!
