Here at The LaunchBox we are passionate believers in Random Acts of Kindness and love the thought of brightening someone’s day up by sending a small surprise gift or paying for a stranger’s takeaway coffee; sadly the latter isn’t possible at the moment. I was the lucky beneficiary of a random act of “paying it forward” several years ago when my husband and I went out for a meal and talked to a couple at the next table. We enjoyed the occasional banter and smiled warmly as they left. When we tried to pay our own bill we were shocked to learn they had paid our full bill including all of the alcohol we had imbibed on a rare night out together. I felt warm and fuzzy inside and was so grateful that I vowed to do it myself whenever I could in future.
Over the years my husband and I have tried to be kind and to help whenever we can. We have bought food and drinks for people living on the streets and we have paid the bill for the next people to buy lunch in some cafes we have been in. Nothing major but we always hope that it just puts a smile on someone’s face who needs it and helps them to remember that there is still a lot of good in the world; and maybe they might just do something nice for someone else. I love the thought of one random act of kindness spreading across a community and bringing smiles when times seem so dark and frustrating.
We talked at The LaunchBox about what we can do to celebrate Random Act of Kindness Day and we all agreed that want to make someone smile who might be struggling right now.
