Every Little Act Of Kindness Can Spread Through Multiple People's Lives

It could be little things or big things but remember it always needs to come from the heart

Don't we all remember back in elementary every one was nice to each other? All you had to say was Hi and you automatically had friends. Back in elementary at least at my school we had a Random Act of Kindness board. Every time you did something nice and someone noticed they would put your name up. As a little kid you would always try to have your name on that board.

However growing up and becoming a teenager there wasn't that random act of kindness board. Social groups or "cliques" started to form. You had to act a certain way or dress a certain way to fit in.

Or even do things just to fit in. Was it really worth it? Changing yourself just to fit in? Is fitting in really important? Well to me fitting in with the crowd was never my thing. I never changed who I was, my mentality , my views and my self just to fit in. So you guessed! You thought I was that lonely girl sitting in the corner and stayed reserved?

Well your wrong! I did make friends and those friends were the people who I could be myself with and really enjoy any time I spent with them. However I never stopped those random acts of kindness. Often times were just so busy with our own problems and things were going through that we don't have time to do acts of kindness.

Hardly do I ever see anyone going out of their way for people. In this generation we don't care about each others problems we just care about fitting in and acting superior. This ideology needs to stop because staying reserved and not doing anything nice for yourself or people is really not what life is about.

A random act of kindness can take you a long way. Having a kind heart and being optimistic can take you a long way. Also you shouldn't do nice things just for a show or just to take a picture of it and post it on snapchat.

Posting the random acts of kindness you perform doesn't do anything but it takes the value away from the action and it makes it look like you only did it for attention. Doing acts just for attention really shows that you never had the kind intention. Showing people on social media what you did is really vacuous.

When you do something from the heart in means to make someone happy than theirs a lot of value in that action. Making someone happy within itself holds a lot of value. You never know what a little act of kindness can take you. Doing one little nice thing for someone can really open opportunities.

Now you shouldn't just go around doing random acts of kindness for the advantages of it you should do it because it holds value in your heart. Some little things you can start doing is first by forgiving everyone who did wrong to you. Forgiveness is hard but trying to do nice things for people does require a kind and clean heart.

Let go of what happened in the past. Forgive those who had the intention to hurt you. Second thing is to come up with a list of people who you are close to or know. Third start by thinking about everything that individual did for you. Of course for some people in the list such as parents, you cant ever pay them back for everything they did for you.

Start by coming up with a list of random acts of kindness that you can perform every now and then. Such as buying roses for your mom or buying the groceries for the house. It could be little things or big things but remember it always needs to come from the heart with the intention to make someone's day!

I have compiled 21 tweets about anti-vaccination parents and their children that did not only make me laugh, but made me further enforce my belief that parents need to vaccinate their kids.

These tweets are pretty dark, to be honest, but once you think about the situation at hand, sometimes it is best to approach it in a funny way so you can get your point across.

You have been warned.

These tweets may be funny, but the situation is not funny. Do your research and help people around you not get sick by vaccinating your kids.

7 Philosophical Ways In Which Winnie The Pooh Understands Food

Short easy words like "what about lunch?"

9

Despite being a "Bear of Little Brain," Pooh really gets food. He honestly and wholeheartedly does. His philosophy behind food shines through the entire Hundred Acre Wood.

Here are 7 quotes I have found that prove this "Silly Ol' bear" may not be quite as silly when it comes to food.

1. A highlight of the day is food.

"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like 'What about lunch?"

Pooh doesn't cut any corners with his simple love of food. To him, the highlight of a day is when he eats, what he eats, and with whom he eats it. Food is easily accessible to many of us living in the Western world, and viewing food as a source of joy gives us at the barest minimum several moments of happiness every day.

2. Food brings motivation and joy.

Routines have a comfort and an excitement in their own selves—food can be a consistent bright spot in your day. Having a routine or something you look forward to with your eating habits can make even the most stressful days positive. For Pooh it's honey. For some, it might be a piece of chocolate, or something green, or always eating breakfast. For me, it's a cup of tea.

3. Food eases loneliness.

Friends are important. And food is important. And the two can physiologically be correlated. Studies show that if a person is lonely, holding a hot cup of tea can make them feel less alone.

There will always be times in our life that we are alone, even just physically, even just for a night. Something to smile about can make the difference between being alone, and being lonely—and comfort food is comforting for a reason. When you're feeling a bit eleven o'clock ish, a bit of honey can be just the thing.

4. Food bonds people.  

"What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying 'What about a little something?' and Me saying, 'Well, I shouldn't mind a little something, should you, Piglet,' and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing."

Food is embedded in our lives every day. Our eating patterns form in relation to other people and is integrally linked to social groups. Sharing food with other people is one of our oldest forms of connecting with other people and creates an instant, natural bond.

5. Food has its own spiritual power.

Milne's cognizance of the spiritual nuances behind food is easily seen in this exchange between Piglet and Pooh. This moment, so simple, speaks volumes. Piglet recognizes that food brings comfort to a distressed emotional state, and food offers support to help Pooh find himself again.

Food (or its routines, or its comfort) can help bring us to a balanced, centered, more spiritual state. Also who hasn't been hangry? It's very difficult to be zen when you're hangry.

6. Food feeds the imagination.

The internationally famous chef Anthony Bourdain viewed food as a powerful storytelling tool. Some native American cultures believe food tells you where you've come from and where you're going. It can empower you to reassert control over your own self and your own life; it reunites you with your spiritual or imaginative self. ("For Bourdain," 2018).

Milne here captures the je ne sais quoi behind food—where food has not only a physiological and emotional influence, it also has an imaginative influence as well.

7. Food exists to nourish and fill us.

We need to eat to survive, and it doesn't take a Bear of Little Brain to tell us how wonderful it is that something we need is also something we find so much delight and joy in. Pooh got how beautiful it is to enjoy a good meal--and thankfully, with a yummy snack or a home-cooked meal or a trip out to eat, you can too.

8. Bees only exist for one reason.
