Today I woke up to my radio … and what I heard, I could not believe my ears.
The radio DJ was asking people to call in to thank someone who have offered them a random act of kindness. It was my kind of way to wake up. Many, many people called into the show.
Many were overcome with so much gratitude. Many had no idea who these people were who helped them. One gentleman knew that if his helper had not shown up, he would have surely died. Imagine. Was it an angel who helped? Or are humans acting as angels when they offer a random act of kindness?
I thought I died and went to a happy, loving metaphysical Heaven on Earth. It was so refreshing to hear this talk rather than the usual news, sports, etc. banter in the morning.
I really enjoy random acts of kindness. It is the one true way you can offer unconditional love towards another human being. If the opportunity presents itself, I try to do a random act of kindness. Oftentimes, it is something so small and inconsequential, but always brightens someone else’s day.
For example, my favorite random act of kindness is to help someone take their cart back to the store or cart return area in a store parking lot. Easy. Costs nothing. I am already on my way towards the entrance of the store anyway. I always get a smile in return. That’s all you need in return—appreciation.
I still cannot believe that my favorite radio station started my day with showing me that others offer their love unconditionally. It is truly awesome.
One random act of kindness can change a person. It changed all the listeners who called into the radio today. Each person remembered that day with such gratitude.
From that one person, it then spreads out, in a sort of ripple effect, to others… and others… and still more others.
It is nice to feel loved.
