‘Do random acts of kindness’ may sound like an overused phrase but give it a shot and you will feel quite satisfied about yourself. I almost never back down from helping another person. It goes against of my workflow sometime but I enjoy helping somebody out. You never know when you’re in trouble and then you’re hoping for help. So, why not reciprocate now and build up a good ‘karma’. And I mean the real karma, not a game level.
What is most important to take away from the phrase is ‘random’. Don’t help or act out of kindness in the hope of receiving it too. Do it because you get satisfaction out of it. We talk about humanity all day but when it comes down to truly playing the part, we use the notion ‘its not my problem’. Well, it could be and then don’t ask for help.
That is enough of a sermon for today. Now, go do a random act of kindness.
