Day 23: Let Someone Go Ahead of You

I did this! 196

Posted on December 23, 2013

Acts of Kindness - Let Someone Go Ahead of YouSitting from the comfort of my cozy den the other day, I watched hundreds of reindeer run through the tundra during their annual migration. They seem to be in such a hurry but I guess I would be too if I had a chance to guide Santa’s sleigh.

If you venture out into the streets and stores today and tomorrow, I bet you’ll see a lot of determined humans running around like the reindeer, doing their part to help Santa. So let’s do our part to help them.

Even if you are a last-minute shopper, let someone go ahead of you so their busy day is that much more pleasant. It may cost you a few minutes but you’ll feel better knowing that you’ve helped someone drive to their destination, get through the line-up, and complete their check-list that much quicker.

It’s a small gesture but in the busy-ness of the holiday, it can make a big difference. Tell us how you did in the comments below.

I know many of you have been performing kind acts over the last few days so please go back to press the “I did this” button so we are up-to-date on the progress. And then give yourself a pat on the back for spreading the kindness. Together, we’ve completed over 7600 AoKs! Woohoo!
