Week 10 experiment to help a stranger every day
I love the warm content feeling of helping (or trying to help) someone out. Not only does it make me feel better on a selfish and individual level but I also think it restores the faith of other people in humankind. It is often said that "one good deed deserves another" and perhaps this is true; that my one act of kindness will somehow filter through like dominoes or the butterfly effect, inspiring other people and making the world a slightly nicer place to be. We never truly know how any other individual is feeling and a simple gesture or act of kindness can literally change lives. The idea of "paying it forward" has become so popular that it has a specific day (April 28th 2016 if you're wondering) aiming to generate over ten million acts of kindness in a single day, worldwide...how amazing would it be to be involved in that?!
Much love and best wishes
