One thing I have learned in life is that small acts of kindness can be transformational. When I tell people how their kindness has changed my life, they often have no recollection of the event. To them it was no big deal. To me it was everything. I was reminded of this the other day when I received a call from an old friend. I haven’t seen him in at least 30 years. He called to thank me for something I did in the 1970’s. He said it saved his marriage and was the impetus for him starting a business that made him wealthy.
So, what did I do that was so meaningful? I have no idea. And it doesn’t matter. What matters is that I was able to help someone have a better life. Whose life will you change today with your kindness? Who changed your life with theirs? Have you thanked them?
