Recently, I’ve been thinking alot about karma. My fiancé (still feels weird saying that!) is a huge believer in karma and that good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people.
Inspired by his thinking, and also to make my days that little bit brighter, I’ve started to do random acts of kindness for strangers and people that I know too. Some of the things that I have done include leaving a pound in the trolley at Tescos, writing a really good review of a bar I visited recently remembering to mention and thank all of the lovely members of staff by name, letting cars out of busy junctions, complimenting people and meaning it, speaking to customer services about a helpful member of staff in a shop; and leaving a £1 coin in a parking meter change slot. I’m trying to do at least one extra good deed a day.
In turn, I feel that I am collecting good karma points as unexpected good things are now happening to me. For example, in Costa coffee, I got THREE marshmallows instead of the usual two.
Now, its all well and good to think that perhaps my free marshmallow was just a coincidence but it is nice to believe that it is down to good ol’ karma working its magic.
It’s making me feel happier knowing that I may have made someone’s day a little bit brighter and I do feel we need to be kinder to one another in this world.
Spread the love! What random act of kindness might you do?
