It’s Day 2 of the KRC Random Acts of Kindness Challenge!
Today’s Reflection – and Challenge – is about smiling – one of the simplest and easiest-to-accomplish Random Acts of Kindness that I know!
First, my reflection. I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve noticed that people don’t seem to smile at each other very often. Whether waiting for a flight in one of the many airports I pass through, or walking out on the street, it seems to me that most people are going about their business heads down, absorbed in their own thoughts or whatever’s happening on their phone! We pass by without even noticing or acknowledging each other – even in the hallways of our own organizations! And to me, that’s a shame, because although it seems like each of us is separate and independent, we’re really all interconnected and dependent on each other! Although you might not know the person you’re passing, you can be sure that, just like you, they have hopes and dreams to fulfill, joy to share and things in their life that they’re struggling with! And just like a simple smile from someone brightens your day – a simple smile from you will brighten theirs!
So, today’s KRC Random Acts of Kindness Challenge (which you’ve probably figured it out already)…is…
Smile! At every person you meet in passing! Wherever you are! It’s an easy way to insure that you’ll feel great – and so will they!
