You Are Beautiful // Random Acts Of Kindness

You know those things that just make you feel good....like a sweet compliment or a hug? Well there's these other actions that make me happy and they're random acts of kindness.



Whether it's buying coffee for the next person in the drive thru, or helping carry someone's groceries to their car, these acts can make anyone feel beautiful. I love the feeling I get after helping someone, especially if they don't even know it was me.
You're wondering how that happens, right? How do they not know it was me? I'll let you in on my secret...surprise random acts of kindness are my favorite. You can see another secret delivery of mine here.

I love leaving things for people, standing back...and watching for their reaction. It is so much fun and amazing to see their genuine, raw reactions.



The latest surprises were left in different areas of my local Target. I purchased Starbucks gift cards and left them in various spots with a note to pay it forward, and enjoy the treat!



The feeling I get when someone is on the receiving end of my kindness makes me all sorts of giddy. I would give my last five dollars to make someone's day. I would much rather help someone and turn around their day then let it go to waste.
You don't need to spend money to be kind to someone. Hold doors, offer a helping hand unloading their car, offer to babysit a friend's child so she can go to the store in peace...there's so many little things you can do to make a difference.

You know what else I love? Entrepreneurs who have worked hard to build their business and all the while do amazing things for others. If you haven't heard of Kiki La Rue or The Shine Project, please check them out. Becka and Ashley constantly inspire me to be a better person and to more for others.

Leaving a mark on someone else's heart, making them smile, turning their day around....are all beautiful pieces that come to make our world a better place. That's pretty awesome when you think about it.

How will you make the world more beautiful? What's your favorite random act of kindness?

Join Lauren & I again on May 28th for the next link-up. Have a wonderful weekend friends!
