What act of kindness will you perform today?

Whether you believe in a heavenly afterlife or prefer to strive for heaven on earth, one thing most philosophies can agree on is that kindness is key. 

Negativity gets broadcast much more often than the positive moments in life.

But, just because motivational acts are less newsworthy, doesn’t mean the world isn’t full of compassionate people. 

Take today as an opportunity to spread a bit of heaven on earth to the people in your life.

What kind of act will you perform today?

A small act of kindness may seem insignificant to you, but it may make someone else’s day.
