Kindness is cool.

“Acts of Kindness:
A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light In The Heart

I work in a care home as a housekeeper. It’s not always great and I used to find myself complaining about it every single day. Not so much anymore. I still know that at some point (hopefully sooner than later), I’ll move on to new and better job, but I learned to accept where I am now and find beauty in every day life.

The quote I put at the top relates to a situation that happened to me during my shift on Sunday. There’s many lovely residents, but I have my 3 favourites. One of them was sitting alone and waiting for lunch. As I walked in to clean the dining room, I greeted her with a big smile. She’s always lovely to everyone and she always says something nice that lifts people up. This time was the nicest she’s ever said to me. She reached out to me and she gave me a big hug and after that she said:” You are such a wonderful girl, you know that, right?” …. I said big thank you to her and that she’s amazing lady as well. Then she asked me:”Doesn’t everyone know it about you? It’s written all over your face”. This sentence made my day. I was in a good mood already, but this made me feel even better. It also made me realise how important it is to be kind to others everyday. Kindness can appear in our words, in gestures, in the way we look at other people. There’s many ways to do it. Kindness is a choice. Kindness can change the world. If every person in the world decided today to do one small act of kindness the world could be much happier place. I can only start with myself and encourage others to do the same. 😉
