The other day, I was checking out Facebook, and I came across a video that I will share below. The caption that somebody put with the video captivated me a bit, and made me want to check out the video and see what it was all about. As it turned out, watching the video really changed my life for that day.
The video was about sharing with others, or helping others in some way. Actually, I already try to live my life in this way, doing charitable things, or helping people when I can. I often find that helping people in unexpected ways brightens up their day, and that really makes me feel good. So, the video didn’t really change the way I live my life, rather it reminded me that I need to do this more often, and it also made me commit that day to go out and do a few random acts of helpfulness.
In fact, in the comments area, I challenged others to make the same commitment – to go out on that day and do a few unexpected acts of kindness, and several people made the commitment.
You know, if enough of us made such a commitment and actually did do acts of kindness and help, it would spread. We could be the catalyst that brings this practice to others, influences them to make a difference too. I have decided that I am going to try to do nice things for people more often. Even just small things, no matter if the thing you do is big or small, if it has a positive impact on somebody, it is a good thing!
How about you, can you commit to do nice things for people? If you do, I can guarantee it will change your life for the better! I know it has done that for me.
If you have not done it already, watch the video above. If you do, I am sure that you will do some nice things today!
