Random Acts of Kindness: Why They Matter

Many live a life where they naturally provide random acts of kindness to strangers, whether you paid for a meal for someone behind you in line at a fast food restaurant or you dropped a secret card off for that teacher that went up and beyond each day to teach your children. Random acts of kindness should be a natural way of life for human beings, as it brings us to a place of generosity in a world that seems to be going downhill while growing a generation of self-absorbed people.  With that being said, we would like to think there are still just as many people out there choosing to live a life where they lead by example with random acts of kindness and as a means to inspire more to live that way we are going to share why these random acts matter.



When you provide another human being with a random act of kindness, even something as simple as a kind gesture of holding the door open, you may have just changed the direction of their day for the better. No one knows what internal battles another person is suffering from and so in that one moment of you expressing a random act of kindness you may have just saved that person’s life without realizing it. Having the ability to turn another person’s life back towards a positive lifestyle is a great feeling, not only did you just make this random person feel better in that moment but you are also going to experience an uplifted sense of happiness in that moment.


Whether you believe that the Universe sends back when you put out there or not, truth be told, random acts of kindness start a domino effect of people starting to pay it forward. One kind thought or gesture inspires others to do the same, we all want to feel internal happiness and bringing joy to another person through simply being a kind human being is the easiest way to make the world a better place, one random act at a time. When you take that little moment to do something kind for another person you are starting the cycle of the Universe sending back those positive energy waves to others and in time you will start to see the world slowly becomes a better place.


A random act of kindness can be defined as any thoughtful, positive spontaneous gesture you have just completed for another human being. There is no true definition as to what a random act of kindness can be, it all depends upon your area of the world and what you feel can be defined as a kind gesture.  We hope that by reading this today you become inspired to go out into your community and do something kind for another human being, we promise it will make you feel good.
