I was buying my morning coffee and upon paying was told it was already taken care of “a random act of kindness.”
In this world is something that small, that insignificant really an act of kindness? I’m not saying I’m ungrateful I just mean with all that exists in this world, all the issues people encounter every single day is that really kindness? Buying someone a coffee!
As I sit here writing this and drinking my “random act of kindness” coffee I can’t help but wonder if people in the society that we live in have just gotten lazy. Instead of doing something that might truly make a difference in someone else’s life we have just lowered the standard on what we consider a “random act of kindness”.
Why I don’t really know… Is it so that we can still feel good about ourselves in this world with very little effort or is it because we need a sense of hope in a world with so much chaos and loss?
When I was given my coffee and told that it was a “random act of kindness” it made me smile and immediately it sparked the idea of what I could do for someone else to give them that same feeling.
Maybe this “random act of kindness” isn’t suppose to solve the worlds problems maybe it’s just suppose to help make someone else’s day a bit better, one coffee at a time.
