Random Act Of Kindness Experiment

Something different. I don't Blog to espouse any particular life philosophy, but rather to momentarily prompt pause for thought. December is a month of celebration and reflection for many. Connecting with friends and family, present giving and receiving and for many some contemplation and renewing of spiritual beliefs.

In the midst of this crazy neon illuminated tinsel sprinkled hustle and bustle are many lost souls enduring a disconnected sense of emptiness, highlighted by the apparent joie d'vivre playing out all around them.

Here's a thought. Not original I might add. Try doing something a little outrageous this month. Let's call it a Random Act Of Kindness. Random as in unplanned, spontaneous and possibly anonymous, and marvel at the impact. I'm making a leap of anticipation here, and that is; the impact on YOU will be as profound as the recipient.

Some concrete for instances. When someone next asks you for some change, tell them you've only got a $20 note, would that do?!  Perhaps stopping to assist some poor motorist who's broken down, even if it's raining and you're late for an appointment. I am sure you can think of some much more creative ideas, I'd love to hear some examples, both of how you felt and the reaction of the recipient.

It's good occasionally to step out of line and do the slightly irrational act and notice the ripple effect it has on the rest of your day.

Of course you could totally ignore this dribble and perhaps be a recipient, and that'll definitely mess with your world!

Please share your Experience and thoughts-I am online to be inspired and occasionally inspire!
