Why Kindness is Everything

Today I wanted to write a post all about kindness. I think sometimes people can often forget the importance of kindness. This can be the smallest gesture but can change someone's day. Kindness offers a positive atmosphere and one kind word can change everything. 

There are so many amazing words that are associated with kindness. Affection, concern, warmth, care and so many more. If someone is known for being kind, they are usually the type of person that is friendly, considerate and generous. If someone's main trait is kindness, then I would defiantly say they are a good person and someone I could be friends with. Kindness is such an important aspect of a person to me and I think a lot of other people would agree. Whether it's friends, family or new people you have met, kindness is the number one thing that I would notice. Whether it's a kind word, a simple smile or opening the door for someone, all of these small acts are something that I notice. 




Kindness is not only something that everyone should portray on a daily basis but it's something I think people should think about more and how their actions may change someone's day. Opening your eyes means noticing when someone is suffering. You never know when someone may need a helping hand, may need to hear those kind words or you might not realise how a small act of kindness can affect someone's day. Below is a list of just a few small acts of kindness that anyone can do:

  • Out of the blue send flower's to a friend 
  • Leave a generous tip for a nice waiter
  • Each time you get a new item of clothing, give away something to charity 
  • Hold the door open for someone 
  • Give someone a compliment 
  • Donate your old towels or blankets to an animal shelter 
  • Buy a hot drink or some food for a homeless person 
  • Pick up the phone instead of texting 
  • Let someone go in front of you in a queue 
  • Pay for someone's morning coffee 

One of my favourite acts of kindness is celebrating someone else's success. Feeling happy for someone else's achievements has got to be one of the best feeling's and I love to see others succeed. Whether this is with your family, friends or someone you don't even know. Letting someone know how well they are doing can be one of the greatest acts of kindness. If someone is working really hard on something, hearing a compliment about it can give them all the motivation they need to keep going. In terms of the blogging world, I will always take the time to message someone, comment on their Instagram or blog post of I think they are doing amazing. Spreading the love within the industry is something I will always do and love to see how many other people do this as well. 'You can tell who the strong women are. They are the one's you see building one another up instead of tearing each other down.'

 

Kindness is a major contributor to happiness and it's always a win win situation. You can change someone's whole day and make them feel so much better and it will always make you feel good as well. I think that a lot of people often forget how important is it to be kind and the lack of friendliness to strangers is something that I hate to see. Everyone has their bad days, that's completely normal and is human. But it's important to remember that even on our bad days, being kind is something we shouldn't forget. We can brighten up other people's bad days with a small act of kindness so it's an important reminder when we are having one of those days too. I think that kindness can be contagious. When other's see other people being kind, it can inspire them to do the same. There is nothing more rewarding then seeing a smile on someone's face and knowing you were the reason behind it. 



At the end of the day, we're all in this together. Everyone goes through some tough times and there's no reason not to be kind. Life can be difficult as it is, so why not make it a little easier for one another. Whether it's a human or not, being kind will get you somewhere and will always go a long way. I hope this post inspired some of you to go ahead and think about what small acts of kindness  you want to complete this week. It doesn't matter how big or small the act is, it will make a difference in some way. Share and spread your kindness today and everyday...you never know when someone might need it more than ever.

  1. "Opening your eyes means noticing when someone is suffering." Love this quote. Couldn't agree more with this whole post! We should all be striving to be kind and even if we do "little" acts of kindness, we never know that it could make someone's entire day!
