This has been without question my biggest “Aha ” week. I started out looking for just 2 acts of kindness every day. I thought I will notice these acts and then record them then wait for the next day. The first day I recorded 5 acts then the second day 9. Then something started to happen.
Watching these acts was not enough, I felt compelled to participate and create my own acts of kindness. As I was doing kind things I started to receive kindness in return, slowly at first then more and more. As the week progressed, it was also becoming hard to keep up with the kindness around me. It was as if a floodgate had been lifted and I was drowned in a river of people doing nice things for each other. WOW!
I did not expect this at all. Of course Mark J and the other instructors had already alluded to this phenomenon of seeing abundance where our attention goes – but to see it first hand was amazing!
There are times in our lives when we experience something and become changed by it to the point where we cannot go back to the original person. This was one of those moments for me. I don’t think I can stop noticing people being kind or stop looking for ways to be kind.
