One Small Act | October 2023 Email Update

Connection to your community is critical. When you are connected,  you feel a sense of belonging, direction, and meaning. In this fast-paced world, we often lose sight of the importance of human connection. We have social media but are more isolated today than ever before. Quite a paradigm.

One simple thing can help overcome this: kindness. Something we learn in grade school and yet is so hard to actually live out as we are hardened by our trauma and life experiences.

Simple acts of kindness can have profound positive impact on individuals, relationships, and society as a whole.

The simple act of offering a genuine compliment to a coworker or friend can brighten their day and boost their mood. Or the time to listen actively and empathetically to a loved one during a difficult time can strengthen the bond between you.

In essence, kindness is a universal language that transcends cultural, social, and economic boundaries. It is a fundamental aspect of what makes us human and has the power to make the world a better place, one act at a time. Whether it's a small gesture or a grand effort, kindness has the capacity to transform lives and contribute to a more compassionate and harmonious society.

Let’s challenge ourselves to do one kind thing for a stranger today. You will NEVER regret being kind to someone and best yet, you never know the effect it can have on someone!
