Spreading Kindness Day #2

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

It's a little late, but I still made it to Day 2 of Spreading Kindness!

This next way to spread kindness is kind of an add-on to smiling. Take smiling one step further and actually ask a stranger how their day is going. It can be scary, I know. An easy way to do this is to ask someone while you are making a purchase. For instance, if you happen to be buying something at Target and the cashier asks you how you are doing, you can ask them back. Really simple :)

I think that it is so important to be nice to the people who are helping us out at stores..maybe it's just because I have worked at Target and Starbucks, but some people can be so rude over a shirt or a cup of coffee. It makes me wonder how they would react when something really serious happens, but that's another story.

"Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God's Law and Prophets and this is what you get."
-Matthew 7:12 MSG
