If you haven’t already opened your “World Book of Kindness” book, let me do it for you. This book is filled with free and simple ways to spread kindness across the world. Where to begin? Right here by telling a loved one that you love them. Here is why this is so important:
1. If you haven’t experienced any “life is just too damn short” moments, consider yourself blessed. Life comes at us fast and sometimes we hold in feelings or thoughts we wish we would have expressed sooner. Tell somebody you love them and how much today before you miss the chance to do it again. Live life without regret.
2. You will feel better doing it. Knowing you just made somebody’s day can really change your day too. If for nothing other than the internal factor of how you might feel after doing it, tell somebody how much you love them. It’ll feel like doing a good deed except you’re benefiting the people closest to you.
3. You will make somebody else’s day! I consider this my favorite reason to tell somebody how much you love them which is why it’s number 3 on my list (also my favorite number). It’s only natural to want more in life. Money, recognition, possessions, are all part of it. Another major desire is power. I’m not talking about power to make decisions though. I’m talking about the power to change somebody’s day from bad to good or from good to great. By telling somebody how much you love them, you’re ultimately changing the world because the person you’re telling is part of this world.
4. You have no clue what your act of kindness can lead to. You’re “I love you this much” could lead to their “I love you this much” to somebody else which starts a massive chain of making the world a better place. How amazing would it be to know you had a part in something that traveled to each continent impacting people for the better?
Want to help the world? Start small and make sure your act of kindness inspires others to do the same. World Book of Kindness was written to do just that. Start with a small example doing something simple, share the experience with the world, and pass it on.
