#actofkindness of the week: Encourage someone to believe in themselves! There are few things more frustrating than seeing someone important to you lacking in confidence. Simple words of encouragement are powerful things, and they cost you nothing! #bekind#wednesday
We can work on ourselves, but are we giving back? Are we being kind to others? Challenge yourself to one small act today, and then do it again tomorrow, and the day after. And share it with someone, challenge someone else. I gave this challenge to my young women and I love hearing how they are putting it to practice! . . . . #actofkindness#grateful#givingback#todaysanewday#bekind
➰Kind hearted stranger➰ In Durban, street vendors sell huge bunches of fresh juicy litchi’s in summer. Beautiful red cobbled orbs of fruit still on the branches tied in big clusters. I stopped to buy some litchi’s, navigating my way across a busy road, I was greeted by this lovely lady. On enquiring about the price I opened my wallet to find it basically empty. I thanked her, confessed I didn’t have the full asking price and turned to leave. She stopped me, told me to wait a minute, disappeared and returned with a packet of single litchis from her stock. Thanking her profusely, I refused as I couldn’t pay. She absolutely insisted and said ‘One day I may receive a blessing too.’ Grateful for this experience and a moment of humanity by a kind hearted stranger. 💗 . . . . #durban#cityofdurban#humansofdurban#peopleofsa#ilovemycity#kwazulunatal#southafrica#ilovedurban#hpsasouthafricans#litchi#litchiseason#randomactsofkindness#actofkindness#mademyday
The photo taken moments before a pretty awful meltdown and rescue. I’m so thankful the kind stranger in the far left corner, though blurry, made it into this frame. . We were enjoying a nice lunch when the little guy started crying uncontrollably, nothing would stop it. It was a loud wailing scream, no offers of juice, water, food, holding...nothing helped. As it continued I felt panicked, I figured we should just leave our food on the table, grab my purse and go. My husband was on the way to meet us, but it seemed like the screaming and crying wouldn’t stop. I tried to find a back exit; it was locked. Hopeless, I went back to the table to try a last offer of food. He calmed down. Turns out he had scratched his lip? Anyways... . . After he calmed down, I was still in shock and panic mode. I was sitting there staring into space when a really kind lady came over and asked if I was okay. I told her I was still getting over what just happened. She gave me so many words of encouragement, reminding me that it’s okay for him to express his feelings, that her daughter had special needs and couldn’t cry to express herself, and that anyone who was upset at the restaurant obviously didn’t have kids. Then she got me a water and stayed with us until my husband arrived. I cried the whole time she talked to me and for a good while after. So, we both had meltdowns I guess. After a while he asked me for about 5 kisses and as many hugs. . . How awesome that people like that exist out there. I hope I can pass on the favor one day when I see a struggling mom. . . #actofkindness#kindstranger#momshelpingmoms#momtribe#thisismotherhood#toddlertantrum#whymykidiscrying#wednesdaywisdom#krausebrothers#lunchdate#twoyearoldlife
Small act of kindness! So this morning a friend and I reached to attend an exhibition far away from the city. Hungry and cranky, we walked out looking for something hot to eat. We found a tapri (small shack) next to the petrol pump station. The stall was so small but we were a little hopeful! They had prepared bread pakodas which were little cold. The woman heard us asking for something hot. She interrupted and asked us if we can wait for some 10-20 mins and she would prepare some. That one act of consideration and of course hot food in cold weather brought in such happiness! 😁😍 . . Where? Mihan Sez, Tapri next to HPCL petrol pump! . #pakodas#actofkindness#foodstories#customerengagement#extramile#nagpurdiaries#travelgram#travelteaches#the_etraveller
Building community begins with being intentional. • So, whether your paying it forward or a random act of kindness, take a moment to love a little today. Because, life is not meant to be lived alone, it’s mean to be shared • In true community, you will be stretched, you will grow, you will celebrate, you will cry, you will get angry, and you will forgive. • But most of all, you will be the best you, because of it! • So take a little time today, to be intentional. It will be worth it!

Temperature here can drop into the 20s (Fahrenheit) sometimes. What an excellent way of keeping everyone warm. Truly spreading warmth!! Matthew 22:39 ...’Love your neighbor as yourself’ #love#share#staywarm#actofkindness
Imagine the changes in Bali seen by these elderly people. Tourism is now the primary industry, Wi Fi on Mt Agung, and western medicine moves into Bali working alongside more traditional healing practices. For many, seeing a doctor is frightening and despite their age, possibly the first or second time they have been to a clinic. Our team offers free health care to the poorest villages between Amed and Mt Agung but we need help to continue this life-saving work. Our two room clinic is simply not big enough for the 7000+ patients. Bricks for Bali is raising funds to build the new clinic, the land has been found and plans are being drawn up. Now we need bricks! Every rupiah or cent donated goes a long way here and they appreciate all support 🙏 https://www.rumahsehatbali.org/bricks-for-bali/ #charity#balicharity#agungcharity#amed#karangasem#pleasehelp#sharingthelove#wecare#rumahsehat#balivillages#donatetohelp#bricksforbali#mtagung#rumahsehatwecare#rumahsehatbali
Proud mommy moment. My daughter has the biggest kindest heart ❤️ I remember this day. In the store she kept telling me over & over mom I need to get my friend a new lol doll because she had lost hers & was so upset & wanted to make her happy. #kindness#happy#friends#proudmom#actofkindness @theellenshow
