Recognising Kindness

The following was posted anonymously as a comment to my previous post and it struck me as something that should be featured so even more people could read it.   

Thank you for submitting it to share with us, “Thinking outloud”.

Recognising Kindness

And as we act progressively seeking opportunities in which we better, rather than detract, those around us, don’t forget to recognise & acknowledge when kindness is done to you.

Yes, you!

Did someone stop and let you merge safely on a busy street, or idle patiently for you to cross an intersection?
Were you let ahead in a grocery line because you had a basket of 5 items versus a family-sized cart?
Did someone at a store, business, or call-support completely understand your question/problem and resolve it quickly?
Did you get flowers because of something you did, but didn’t think it was that important? Someone did!
Did a friend thank you for listening to their problems, even though you thought it was just sharing coffee?
Did someone say to you, “Don’t worry about anything. It’s all under control.” ?
Did a smile from a baby, casual person on the street, or special someone make your day? (did you smile back?)

…did you feel a moral obligation to pay-it-forward when any of those happened?

Well, it’s not the law, but it’s a pretty good idea.
