Day 21: Turn On Your Kindness Radar

I did this! 145

Posted on December 21, 2015

If you've been dilligently perfoming Acts of Kindess through the month, you may have noticed something: after a while, you start to be on the lookout for ways to be kind. That's because your capacity for kindness, like any other strength, grows with use, almost as if it's a kind of muscle. Put another way, the more kindness you give to the world, the more opportunities to be kind you notice, and the more you'll find yourself wanting to help in ways big and small. We call this your kindness radar. We've all got one, and today we want you to really listen to it, and more importantly, act on it.

Did someone at the coffee shop drop their change? Help them pick it up. Notice your office-mate working frantically toward a deadline? Offer to pick up lunch for them. See a car parked at an expired parking meter? Put in a quarter or two. Once you're tuned in to the signals your kindess radar is detecting, you'll be amazed at how many opportunities you'll notice. You just need to listen.
