Small Acts of Kindness

I woke up really sick today.

By my bedside, starting to go cold, was a mug of lemon and honey tea which set the tone for the rest of my day.

I feel like a gooey lump of snot, but it’s been much easier to deal with since seeing that mug.

Sometimes the kind things that people do are less impactful than the fact they went out of their way to do them for you.

It didn’t matter that the tea was going cold because the tea wasn’t what made me feel better. The tea reminded me that someone who loves me has my back, and if I neededed anything, I could ask.

There is overlooked power in these exchanges.

These little investments of time in one another is how we weave the fabric of social connection.

It’s how we bond, it’s how we trust, it’s how we love.

Invest in your relationships little by little every day.

It takes five minutes to make a cup of tea, to pick up some chocolate, or to tidy someone’s space.

If your effort generates more than five minutes worth of joy, you’ve created a net positive in the world.

Take five and do something kind for someone you care about.

What goes around comes around.
