Tuesday Topics: Seven Acts of Kindness

There are so many ways to be a kind person. I believe that leaving a kind and happy life is what keeps my everyday life fulfilled. I think if I just try my best everyday, then that is always good enough no matter what.

So today's topic is acts of kindness. I'm just going to go over how I love to show kindness!

Show your spouse love. I love showing my husband love. He is one of the most important people in my life.

Put your energy into encouraging others. You don't know what is going on in other people's life or what it is like to walk in their shoes. Therefore, a smile, can really go a long way to someone else.

Refuse to run on autopilot. This is your life, pay attention, feel all the feelings, and face your highs and lows head on. Take time to reflect, take time to ask yourself the tough questions from time to time and be okay with the discomfort of your answers. Be intentional.

Take ownership of your gifts, strengths, and creativity so that you can give and receive the most in life.

We have all heard the phrase: comparison is the thief of joy. But we have also heard: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It is so easy to see what’s going on around us and compare our own life, our own decisions, and our own highs and lows to others. Be kind and intentional with your decisions in response to the decisions and values of others.

I am a big believer in contributing more than we consume. I have been consciously cutting back on how much I am consuming so I can contribute more through inspired work.

However, the biggest acts of kindness are to yourself, from yourself. It is hard for other people to love you if you cannot love yourself. Some of the ways I am kind to myself and remember all the love in my life is by making happy lists, remembering things I am thankful for, and living life to the fullest everyday.

  1. I'm totally guilty of running on auto pilot all too often. And comparison is SO hard to avoid, sometimes it's healthy to compare things (like prices at the grocery store!) but it's way too easy to slip into the habit of comparing people who have had totally different life experiences.

  2. I love all of these things ♥ I like to take time out of my day to focus on my husband and time to focus on my son. They are so important to me and I want them to know that. I also have a tendency to run on autopilot. The worst for me is that I am so checked out that I will have to idea what is going on in a conversation. Yikes!
