One of my favorite quotes is \:

“Unexpected Kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change”.

This quote is one of my favorites because it is a reminder that being kind can change lives. We never know when others are not well, down on their luck, have lost a loved one and feeling lost, or feeling forgotten. Your neighbor, coworker, teacher, family member, or an acquaintance could be feeling the emotions due to illness, grieving, desperateness, and unimportance. Whether they like it or not they’re vulnerable.

It is my belief that just being “nice” can lack sincerity and often suggest minimal efforts. Being “kind” is doing intentional, voluntary acts of kindness. Kind people don’t do acts of kindness when it is easy or draws attention to themselves. Instead, truly kind people do acts of kindness when it is hard to be kind.

Has anyone ever done something kind for you, and you thought how you would like to pay it forward? That is because kindness can be a chain reaction. It’s like a wave that keeps rolling and it only needs one person to start it. One small act of kindness can change your community.
