Challenge Myself: Day #154 Perform One Act of Kindness
Today is Day #154 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says, to give someone your seat on the bus, OR do one simple act of kindness in your day. You don't even have to wait until you are traveling to do this.
The book says,
Be a good person. Get up, and with a smile, offer your seat on the bus, train or subway to an elderly individual. It's the right thing to do.
Think of the good karma you are generating. Old people are not as stable on their feet as they were in their youth. Vacate your seat and allow them the safety of sitting instead of holding onto a rail or a strap over their heads, something you might easily do.
You'll feel good just knowing that you showed an act of kindness to another. And you are a better person for having done it.
I have found that a simple way to show an act of kindness is to just smile even if you really don't feel like smiling.
Just For Today: I will start and end the day with a smile.
