Tell us about the time when you performed a secret random act of kindness — where the recipient of your kindness never found out about your good deed. How did the deed go down?
I sat here and thought about this prompt for a while. Mostly wondering if there was anything I ever did without the other person knowing. And I’m not sure I have. I don’t believe I have ever “secretly” done a good did.
I choose to live my life in a way where I am hoping that at least one person is happier. Letting people cross the street by holding up a line of cars. Leaving a quarter on a basket at Aldi’s (since you have to pay a quarter to use their basket). Saying hi to strangers. Smiling even when deep inside of me I’m crying. Giving to people anything I can give to them without leaving me on the street (because it’s not worth that. Honestly. *that’s me being yay me!*)
I’m the one who does the small things in life. Leaving notes for people inside of books at libraries or book stores.
I’m saddened, however, to know that I have never done anything without someone knowing I did it. Maybe I need to take a hard look at myself and start over.
