So I pose this question to you, if I introduced you to you, how would you like to be shown?
Personally, I’d want to be someone who showed kindness through the random acts I did in my life. Comment your thoughts below.
One of the easiest things to do in life is to be kind.
It’s actually super simple and there are tonnes of ways to demonstrate kindness to a world who really needs it.

5 Random Acts of Kindness
(1) Good-morning/Have a nice day message…e.g *Thinking of you*
A message like this is easy to send to someone on your mind. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, just click send and then wait for the reply of “Oh you just made my day”
(2) Saying sorry to someone you’ve hurt in the past which was never resolved
I don’t think there’s anyone else who hates confrontation more than me. It’s some scary shit to bring up old-unresolved issues to someone. But if you were in the wrong and realised that you need to apologise then this is another act of kindness.
(3) Buying someone a small gift
The gift doesn’t have to be expensive because the fact that it is spontaneous will be worth more than you’ll ever know. Everyone knows me as that girl who doesn’t buy people birthday presents, but will buy random gifts when someone has been on my mind. Personally, I find that more special.
(4) Making someone a cup of tea
This is easily my favourite random act of kindness. Ask someone if they would like a cup of tea, boil kettle, make cup of tea. Easy done.
(5) Visiting someone unexpectedly
Ah, simple. Just don’t scared them but it’s totally okay to visit someone unexpectedly. Hopefully if their being particularly nice, they’ll offer to make you a cup of tea.
