JSmall Acts of Kindness can go a Long WayJ


Do you ever find yourself giving kind gestures towards a friend or someone you know? You can exhibit an act of kindness every day, such as paying for someone’s food in the line in the drive-thru at the next McDonalds you buy food from or giving someone a small gift at the next family gathering you attend. The truth is these small acts of kindness that you can commit to doing everyday can go a really long way. These small acts of kindness can have a huge impact on others, it can make them happy, teach them how to be kind to others, and can help them through a tough time that they may be going through.


First of all, your small acts of kindness can spin someone around into a good mood. Giving someone the gift of joy is the best feeling in the world. It’s really worth the trouble of giving someone these small acts of kindness when you get to see a smile on their face. Plus, people love it when they receive these acts of kindness. Doesn’t everyone just want to be happy? Being kind can easily put a smile on someone’s face. Receiving an act of kindness will completely change someone’s attitude.


Second of all, these acts of kindness can teach the receiver to be kind themselves. Teaching someone to be nice is a great way to help others. Also, there is just one more person out there making the world a better place one step at a time. Making one person happy by giving them an act of kindness can make so many more people through more acts of kindness.


Lastly, this person may be going through a tough time that you ease them through. Just a small act of kindness could make someone’s day a little bit easier. For everyone, life may not be easy at some points, but you being kind may just be enough for them not to lose it for one more day.


All in all, making someone feel joy, teaching them how to give joy themselves, and sliding them through a hard time can make the entire world a better place. The world needs people to be kind, and something as small as buying a child of toy out of a gumball machine can be enough for people to realize it. The world need help, and kindness is the best way to achieve it.
