Random Acts of Kindness

September 18, 2013

I love hearing about random acts of kindness. My heart sings knowing there are loving, caring, and decent people who go out of their way to help and bring joy to others. There’s so much negativity in the world, and so often, only bad news is reported. It’s a breath of fresh air to hear stories of random acts of kindness, or, better yet, to experience them firsthand for yourself.

I don’t believe in coincidences. As a true believer in the power of intent, and as a beloved child of God and the Universe, all that occurs in my life happens for a reason. I don’t believe in luck, only blessings. I know every person and creature is placed in my life for a specific purpose. Every situation is a learning experience. Everything happens for my own good. My life is a continuous evolution of self-growth. Having this knowledge and insight, I wake up every morning with enthusiasm, ready to face anything and anyone that wanders onto my life path. I remain curious as to the life lesson for the day and grateful for the beauty that God will reveal to me.

It took me a long time to learn to love myself. I grew up in an Asian culture where I was taught to be selfless, and to always put the needs and desires of other people before my own. The expectation was to never think of myself first, as that was selfish. My parents’, siblings’, relatives’, and friends’ needs and wants, all took priority over mine. It was ingrained in me to put my own needs and desires last. Pleasing others was more important than pleasing myself. Self-sacrifice was honorable.
