Unkind on Random Act of Kindness Day

Did you know that today is a day that encourages the doing of a random act of kindness. Sadly, I blew an opportunity already this morning when I charged ahead of a young gal and her small kids at the bagel shop. If only I knew that today was the day I was supposed to be kind. :(

Guess that is the troubling point. Today impatience got in the way of kindness. Other days selfishness trumps kindness. So many obstacles to kindness. Small wonder that I need to be reminded to do something kind.

What things do you think get in your way when it comes to being kind?

Perhaps if we become self aware we will be kinder and do kind things?


  1. The short answer: self absorption, in all its ugly forms. Maybe there should be a bumper sticker: "Be self-aware not self-absorbed!"

      I like it Corey!
