Wake Up Call! – Simple Acts of Kindness


Simple acts of concern and kindness are treasured gifts.

In my meditations this week I reflected on kindness. A flood of memories surfaced of a difficult and stressful time in my life. I remembered the emails and phone messages from friends, those I worked with and some whom I barely knew. Perhaps unknown to those who sent them they were each a gift of love, sustenance and encouragement. I was not alone!

These messengers could have chosen to be silent or respect my privacy but instead they chose to be a light bearer.

Only I could do the work needed to come through that period but that work was more bearable because of seemingly simple acts of kindness and concern.

It was a reminder that my life is shaped and formed by a generous circle of people. Surely the concern expressed through kindness is a marker of our spirit? I’m wondering what opportunity this day will offer for an act of kindness?


Each day:

  • Be grateful for the kindness of another person

  • Be awake to opportunities to engage in a simple act of being kind

Notice how the spirituality of kindness expands your generous circle of connection.
