I signed up for the 14-Day Kindness Challenge, posted by Celes Chua on her Personal Excellence website. Along with over 500 people, and the number keeps growing by the minute, I will intentionally do at least one act of kindness every day for 14 days from Nov. 1 to Nov. 14.
I do believe in being kind and doing acts of kindness for others. A smile, a “Hi,” a thank-you note, a phone call, how insignificant they may look like, can make a big difference in life.
These past two days, I have called and tried to contact a few friends and relatives on the east coast to ckeck on their status before and after the davastating Hurricane Sandy.
“Thank you for thinking of us!” People appreciate it when you show some kindness by doing little things like making a phone call.
I know I am not always kind, and I am not kind to everyone. Sometimes I am not even kind to the people who are most close to me in life. I have a lot to improve.
I hope by doing the 14-Day Kindness Challenge, I will become a kinder person, will be more intentional in doing acts of kindness, will touch someone’s life, will improve my own life.
Please join me in this challenge. The more, the better!
