I believe in God, fate and karma. I don’t follow the rules of religion but that doesn’t mean I’m not a believer.
I believe the more good you do, the more good you receive. This doesn’t mean bad things don’t still happen because they do, and often to good people. However, at least in my life, the things that seemed truly terrible ended up serving a great purpose. My experiences have shaped me into who I am, and lately, most days I like that person.
What I’m trying to get at is, random acts of kindness will have a far greater impact on the person you bless than you know. I’ve been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of random acts of kindness and it has always been such an uplifting experience. They always come at the perfect time and restore my faith in my beliefs. For that, I’m forever thankful to those strangers. This is also why I try to help whenever I can. From holding the door open for someone, to donating to a go fund me campaign, to buying someone’s coffee behind me, I try to do what I can. It’s little things but I know they make a difference. It’s the little things that have gotten me through a bad day, week, month and year. However, can you really say it’s bad if you find at least one moment of good?
All I know is I will continue my RAOK campaign, I’ll be grateful for trials and triumphs and I will always be thankful to the strangers who changed my life for the better.
