The ripple effects from kindness.
“Remember, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” (Scott Adams)
I love this quotation. I’ve tried to accept the fact that it’s by the guy who writes Dilbert (which I secretly love – not so secret anymore, I guess). What I’ve found is that my favorite acts of kindness are the ones that ensure anonymity. I like to pay for the guy behind me in a drive-thru. It can be a bit of a gamble – you never know what that guy has ordered or how much it might be. What’s awesome is knowing that someone is confused and happy. I’m not sure why I feel so excited when I do stuff like that, but I get this grin that won’t go away.
Change the direction of someone’s day. Make them smile and take no credit. It’s going to create ripples you couldn’t imagine.
