Seven Days of Kindness

An act of kindness large or small should be a common place.

Just simple and small acts of kindness can go a long way to making others and yourself happy.

I am going to ask that you please try this fulfilling exercise.

Seven Days of Kindness

Today (Monday) I am going to ask you to try a test. To everyone you meet, look them in the eye and smile and say how are you today. Wait for their reply and response. Engage in a conversation if it calls for one. Also remember the drive-thru and restaurant server exercise. Smile at the person and use their name to address them, thank them, and wish them a great day. I would wager that 90% will smile back and appreciate your actions.

The next day think of a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to for a while and call them and tell them you have been thinking about them. Ask them how they are, and what they have been up to. I wager the conversation will be fulfilling.

On the third day perform a random act of kindness. Whether it’s mowing a neighbors yard, washing a neighbor’s car, helping take out the trash for a neighbor, or deliver a free pizza or take out food to someone you know.

On the fourth day think of someone you know that may be struggling or going through a tough time. Think of some small item or token they would appreciate. It may be a lunch together, dinner together, a movie, or just a simple card or face to face conversation. Call them, reach out to them, let them know you care and wish them well and recovery.

On the fifth day call your parents. Check in on them and see how they are doing and if they need anything. Is there anything you may do for them. That you care and are thankful for them.

On the sixth day call your sibling, child(ren) or very best friend. Tell them you care and appreciate them. Take them out for dinner or a fun activity together. Siblings, children, and best friends are a treasure. Treat them like the precious treasure that they are.

On the seventh day, speak to our Lord God. Visit your local church and praise, worship and learn about Him and His goodness and mercy. Remember what He did for you, and that He loves you and that you love Him. Be with and fellowship with other believers. Get energized and ready for your next week of acts of kindness!
