Sunday’s Food for the Soul: Random Acts of Kindness & Senseless Acts of Beauty


Do you find yourself becoming overwhelmed with work, back to school, or just life in general? Wish there was some way to ease the anxiety and bring contentment back into your life? There is.  The treatment towards contentment within is threefold; service, kindness, and love.

See, the moment you remove your attention from yourself and put that thought and energy into doing good for others through acts of kindness you are reminded of what truly matters in life. Random acts of kindness is a way to keep you grounded and you never know just how much your act of kindness means to others…it might be the one act that prevents someone from making the biggest mistake of their lifetime.

  1. Be kind

Do you have any suggestions to add to the list? I know I personally enjoy serving others with friends (thus the image above…we are rockin those hairnets, lol!) and family. Do you have a story, experience, or act that you would like to share….sometimes reading about the joy others receive through acts of kindness encourages other to do the same so please share.

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!
