Julie Z. Rosenberg recently interviewed the woman whose story was the basis of movie "The Blind Side." There was one part of the interview I found particularly compelling. When the author was asked what she wanted people to take away from her new book, "In A Heartbeat," she challenged people to:
"Turn around. Look to your left. Look to your right. That quickly, there can be somebody under your nose that needs your help and even the smallest bit of kindness -- . . . You will get immense satisfaction out of seeing what it does for someone else.
And if you do those sorts of things on a regular basis, it becomes second nature to you. And that's what I hope that people do. Small acts of kindness. If we all do that it will have a profound effect on this country and I really believe that. I truly do."
I truly believe it too which led me to start this blog. Reminders like her words and actions shows what a difference one person can make if they chose to do so. I also second the sentiment that you receive more in return than you give including intangibles like purpose and peace. I hope to leave the world a little better place than I found it one random kindness at a time. And if I can, inspire a few others to do the same.
