Random Acts of Kindness
These days people seem more selfish vs selfless. The state of the world around us seems more depressing than in the past. I feel myself not paying as much attention to the news around us. There is this cacophony of noise coming from the White House that feels like a flip-flopping seesaw. What’s real, what’s not? There is an underlying feeling of fear as if our leadership has unlocked Pandora’s box. Are we just living in a TV show?
Then there are the small things that happen such as a new generation of officials who have been putting their hat in the ring with a group of citizens behind them that want to change the leadership we have had for decades. Everything is a moving target.
Just when I have lost faith in people being empathetic towards their fellow person, I got a few random acts of kindness to come into my email box. People who I do not know that wanted to do something for me from giving me the advice to amplify my voice to an interest to share things I have written.
More people seem to be yearning for being present in the moment, being part of a community and connected to their friends, it is those random acts of kindness that make me believe that there is a very bright light at the end of the tunnel from where our world seems to be right now. I certainly hope so.
