The Power Of Kindness

We see it all the time, someone buys a lunch for a person in need, or someone donates their time to make a small difference in their community. And some people just shake their jaded little heads.
Have we become so cynical that the idea if helping others is more of a nuance then an amazing thing. Do people actually believe that small acts of kindness won't make a huge impact?
Because we can not think that way or the human race is doomed.
The idea of asking for help has become twisted and warped into a mean creature who people call pathetic. People who ask for help are seen as weak and lazy, meanwhile the human race is programed to need and desire help. Helping one another is how we can connect and bond on a deeper level.
Now trying to help is seen as stupid, naive, and pointless since unless you can completely solve a situation they is no reason to even try to change anything right?
Wrong.
Small acts of kindness changes peoples lives. It can go as far as helping someone feed their family, teaching someone to read or just being an advocate for those who go unnoticed in society. And when people step up and help, others take notice. Then maybe those people will pay it forward (excellent movie if you are ready to sob your eyes out). And the cycle continues.
So here are a few random acts of kindness to reinstate your faith in humanity. Because we all want and need help, we just get a little messed up in how to ask.
This man spends his lunch hour reading to his coworker who doesn't know how. Yes this isn't stopping any wars, but if everyone had just a little of this mans compassion, maybe wars would end.
Plus his coworker's life has been forever touched.
Buying someone in need food is amazing. This woman took it one step further by buying herself and this man lunch and sitting with him as his equal. She proceeded to spend her lunch chatting with him.
Talk about the cycle of kindness at work! Paying it forward is an amazing way to keep the kindness going. There was once a story about a fast food drive though in with every single car in the line ended up paying for a surprise coffee for the person behind them! It went on for nearly 10 cars.
In a time when so many people lost their jobs the idea of having a clean, pressed suit can make all the difference in the world. This laundry mat helped give struggling people a basic necessity back. No judgement attached.
This 82 year old barber goes to the park and gives anyone a shave daily. He charges 1 hug per shave. Sometimes people don't have the money for simple luxuries. Being able to get one seriously brightens someone week and give them a more positive outlook on life.
Needing a place to charge your phone may seem so trivial. But after a disaster like Hurricane Sandy, when people had no power or even homes, it means the world to be able to have a lifeline. Just being able to call a family member can make a terrible situation a little easier.
A train station full of people helped recuse someone who fell in the cracks between the train and the platform. This just goes to show how everyone working together can move mountains...or in this case trains.
An officer asked the citizens of Brazil to not fight during the protest that day because it as his birthday. So they brought him a cake. Even people on two different sides can come together for something important, like a birthday.
If you want to see just how life changing small acts of kindness can be, watch this video! Her reaction brought me to tears and she was even able to pay it forward!
I love humans!
Seeing the difference you make in someones life can improve your own as well. So start looking for ways to help instead of looking the other way. The world will become a better place because of you!
If you need some more inspiration I got a lot of the pictures from vivalnova and they have even more!

Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!
Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life. But Why? Several studies show how children who live with pets have a more developed emotional intelligence (EI), i.e. the ability of effectively understand, manage, and express oneโ€™s feelings and interpreting those of others. This is considered to be a key factor for a better quality of life. Unlike the intelligence quotient (IQ), which experts consider to be unalterable, the emotional intelligence can progress with time, through practice. Animals can help children do this. Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids. 1. Empathy Children living with pets early learn to take care and feed another creature, initially by observing their parents, storing up all elements they will use in every future interaction with animals. Several studies demonstrate that children who own pets feel more empathy towards other people and animals. 2. Self-esteem Taking care of animals necessarily entails responsibilities, which give children a sense of personal fulfilment and help them feeling independent and competent. Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda, authors of the book The Waltham Book of Humanโ€“Animal Interaction, reports an experiment in which children with low self-esteem showed great progresses after they spent 9 months with a pet in their classroom. 3. Cognitive development Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They donโ€™t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, โ€œconversingโ€ with animals helps children fighting stutter. 4. Stress reduction Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations. What do you think?
Women Are Clingy, Men Are Romantic
Why is it that when a man performs a wild, extravagant, borderline-stalker gesture, and he's SO ROMANTIC. A woman attempts to sweep a man off of his feet, and we're called crazy. Or clingy. Or obsessive. Why is it more socially acceptable for a man to overly express his emotional side but women need to play it cool when it comes to romance? Writes you letters everyday. Think of the Notebook. We're told to think that's super romantic of the guy, but if a girl did it she'd be seen as obsessed!! Throws rocks at your window. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger, hoping my crush would ride his bike over and say he loves me from the street below. But think about a girl doing that...she's probably stalking you. Shows up outside your classroom door to walk you to your next class. A guy standing outside your office or classroom door is sweet, touching, cute, but a girl might be a little obsessed with you, right? Trying to change your mind about dating them. Girls chasing after their crush telling them 'I'll treat your right!,' ' Just give me one shot,' or anything Heath Ledger said in 10 Things I Hate About You just sounds goofy to think about! Do anything annoyingly musical. Put on a performance in front of the whole school, hold up a boom box outside of your window, whatever it is, guys can do it and girls should sort of...not... Use pick up lines. Guys may get a huge eye roll for using them, but have you ever heard a girl throw out a pick up line at someone at the bar? Probably not. Ladies: Do you ever feel like you can't make any big romantic gestures? What's a romantic thing you've done? Ladies and Gentlemen: Would you be turned on or off by a girl doing a bigger romantic gesture that's usually just considered a guy thing? Personally, I'm all for everyone showing love in as many ways as they can! I'm not super into big romantic things for me personally, but I say guys and gals should be able to do whatever they want!
