I’m happy to admit that my love language is gifting or random acts of kindness. I love the feeling of making your friends or loved ones feel thought of and cared about through small gestures. It doesn’t take much to turn somebodies day around and make a positive impact.
Before we get into it, I want to say thank you! I received my 1,000 likes award yesterday! I am so incredibly thankful for this community and for my readers.
1. Post a Card
It’s not really done much anymore, but I really enjoy sending cards in the post to friends or family. I think its much more personable than just sending a text or email, although those methods are great too! I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy receiving unexpected things in the mail (besides credit card bills haha). It’s also really inexpensive to do this too.
2. Pay for an Order Behind you
This is one of my personal favourites. Acts of kindness don’t just have to be to those that we know and love. A random act of kindness to a stranger is even more special. Who knows what they are going through. You could be that one thing that changes their perspective for the day.
3. Give Someone a Helping Hand
The first step is asking. How can I help? How can I make this better for you? Something as small as those questions can make a difference. It makes the other person know that they can count on you. It also helps you to know what the right thing to do is.
4. Let Someone Know You Appreciate Them
Although it’s easy to forget to do this, to me this should be almost a daily occurrence. We shouldn’t wait for a special occasion to let people know we love and appreciate them. It should be a regular thing we do. This could be a random message, or email, or even a phone call. Just let the people who mean the most to you, just how much you love and appreciate them.

What things do you do to brighten other peoples day? What do people do in your life to brighten your day?
It’s good to be kind. Even when sometimes you don’t feel like it. Whenever I do these random things, I always feel better afterwards. Just making people feel good, happy and appreciated is enough for me to feel fulfilled.
