Friday 13th like you’ve never lived it before, you normally consider it as an unlucky day. A day where the most accidents are thought to happen, a day where staircases and black cats are feared. Would you believe me if I told you this November, Friday 13, 2015 is a whole different story. World kindness day falls on Friday 13th, so instead of fearing black cats adopting one would make a difference, instead of waking up and dreading the day because of freak accidents be more cautious and nice on the road. Helping others can restore a sense in humanity, but it also changes you.
“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”
Kindness day started when a group of humanitarians came together on November 13, 1997 and made a “declaration of kindness”.
Doing acts of kindness is about adopting all the animals from the shelter or giving every kid a home, we all know that just one person can’t do that, but we do know that just one person with one simple act of kindness can change someone’s day or life. You could donate; books, clothes, or food.
Volunteer at the local pet shop, nursery homes. Or simple acts like holding the door or complementing another person. Being kind has no price and you can be kind in any way possible. Being kind shouldn’t just be celebrated one day, being kind should just come naturally every day. Remember everyone is going through something, a simple compliant or smile can brighten their day.
“It was raining yesterday and I bought two umbrellas and put them where I know people who have no home go. I hope they went to people who need them. I know how good it feels to have someone do something good for me, and I like to pass it on. Human kindness is extremely important in this world today. We are all (and each) adding to the world karma every minute.” Ellen Suess from Las Vegas, NV
I was at school this kid had a disability he couldn’t find his hat at lunch so I offered him me to help him and I did I took all my lunch time just to find his hat when the bell rang we found his hat he was so happy that he gave my a hug I felt so kind and loving I was SO HAPPY what I did that and I went back into class and I told all my friends and my teacher and they we’re very happy with me- Tyleiha
It really makes my day when I can do something for someone without even a thank you from the person on the receiving end. I was in line at the grocery store, and a guy came with only three items too my seven. I made out like I was looking for something else so he could go before me. I did not want no thanks for my deed of kindness. It really felt like nice, especially with all the negative stuff we encounter daily. It completed my day for years to come.
