Don't you learn a lot on t'internet & especially in Blogland?
Angela (Tracing Rainbows) said that yesterday was World Kindness Day. Er........ does it say something of the world that we have to have a day dedicated to kindness? Don't people just do kindness as a matter of course? Despite my wonderings about it I do think it is a great idea and went to the linked website.http://www.randomactsofkindness.org/kindness-ideas
Some of the ideas are scary - "help a motorist who has broken down "- and be mugged if it's a scam? Some of the ideas I do not have the skills for - "help a motorist who has broken down" came to mind again - lol. Some are beyond my budget - "pay the bill of the person behind you in the queue" - I can barely pay my own! And some I don't consider kindness but just good old fashioned good manners e.g. "Clear up after yourself" rather leaving your mess for someone else.
However overall, I think this is a brilliant website and it has made me wonder if I do something kind for someone else every day. Am thinking of taking this into the new year as some kind of resolution as there are some good voluntary/charity work ideas.
So what did I do that was kind yesterday? Well I'm glad World Kindness Day was yesterday as I was, coincidentally, a bit kind! (The day before I just felt a bit bad tempered - lol!)
So, yesterday I took some homemade pre-cooked meals to an elderly relative .....
.... and then took her to the dentist (not sure that bit was very kind- lol!)
What do you think about having a day dedicated to kindness? Are we kind enough to people? I don't think we are really.
Wishing you a happy (kind!) Wednesday.
