Kindness makes a difference when you go above and beyond in the simple things. For example, when your empathy or sympathy turns into an action.
The other day, I forgot my mug of warm coffee with hazelnut creamer at home. It wasn’t the end of the world. Either way, as I was walking up the stairs with my coworker, I shared this with her.
She told me that she had an extra mug in her room she could lend me and a coffee maker so that I could make myself a cup. Her kindness made my day.
She could’ve simply listened to me and said she was sorry I’d forgotten my coffee. Instead, she went above and beyond by making sure I didn’t go through my day without my morning coffee.
She said something along the lines, “That’s what we’re here for, to help each other out.”
How has someone’s act of kindness made a difference on your life?
