The Kindness Challenge

“Last week I was having a bad day… so at the drive through window at lunch I paid for the car behind me “

I literally did a double take reading that sentence on IMMD

Wow!  Major challenge!  It’s hard enough being kind when all is going well but when I’m having a bad day and feeling grumpy???

Then just a couple of days later I came across this new initiative: 1makbirmingham

‘Imagine what Birmingham would look like if there was an outbreak of kindness across OUR city and everyone did a daily act of kindness…’

Theme going on or what?!

It made me think – what would Berlin look like if I, if we chose kindness instead of grumpiness? If I smiled when somewhat pushed in front of me on the U Bahn and took the last seat? If I was patient when someone blocked the aisle with their shopping trolley?

What about more proactive, rather than reactive, acts of kindness?

“Let’s light up the city with kindness.”

Feeling challenged, trying to figure out what to do with it
