It’s such a simple concept really. There was a bumper sticker that was popular in the 90s, “Practice random acts of kindness, and senseless acts of beauty.” I have always loved that saying.
This video was shared on Facebook, and I thought to myself, “Wow, what a great concept, and it only costs $1.00.”
- One of the things I try to do is smile at everyone I see. A simple smile might just make another person’s day.
- I always thank the person who is serving me, whether it is the clerk at a grocery store, a server at a restaurant, a telemarketer—a thankless job—who is just doing their job.
- Give a stranger a compliment. It will make them feel better.
- When we had the toll on 400, and before I had my Peach Pass, I would pay the toll for the person behind me.
- If someone in front of a grocery line, is short on change, and if I have the money, I’ll offer to help pay.
It doesn’t take much. A little kindness can go a long way. I have been know to hug a stranger who is in a bad mood, or doesn’t seem to be happy. That hug has transformed quite a few people, and helped them feel better. It made me feel good too. Try it, you might like it.
This is the chicken piccata that I made with the carrot and avocado dish that I included with my last post about Change. I did substitute almond flour for ap (all purpose) flour to make it Paleo friendly. I love the nuttiness that almond flour imparts, and it is so much better for you than processed ap flour.
Here are some organic ingredients for this dish. Note: I use extra virgin coconut oil to cook with instead of olive oil.
