I’ve been absent from my blogs for over a year due to some changes in my life that I’ve been focused on during that time. I confess that I really haven’t had the time or inclination to sit down and write about anything…opinionated or otherwise.
That’s why, this morning, I am surprised to find myself here at my keyboard. I think it’s because I want to share with you something that’s been happening to me with an odd regularity lately. It’s been happening often enough that I’ve noticed it…and the more that I am aware of it, the more often it seems to happen.
The internet and social media are full of posts about the power of positivity and paying it forward…and RAOKs. Random Acts of Kindness. I see them on my Facebook timeline. get them in my email, see them on television…they are even on billboards along the freeway. But how many of us actually see them or take the time to let ourselves feel their message? Do we listen to our hearts? Or, are we just peripherally aware of them and quickly pass them by?
For the past several weeks, I’ve become aware of the reality of random acts of kindness in my own day-to-day life. I’ll tell you more about it in a future post.
In the meantime, I ask you to take a few moments out of your day to look around and see what you see. If you really look, I think you may find that RAOKs are going on right before your eyes. Please share them with me in your comments.
IMHO….we need a lot more kindness in our world these days. Let them begin with me…
