This is the fourth of 10 weekly reading assignments and kind action recommendations using the book “The Power of Kindness” as inspiration.
Reading: Read the chapter called “Gratitude”
Read slowly and allow your mind to move toward stories in your life triggered by the reading. Pay attention to these stories, trusting they have something important to teach you.
Kind Action: Acknowledge With Gratitude a Kindness Extended to You
Pay special attention to any kindness that is extended to you this week, no matter how small. Late in the week, choose at least one of these kind acts and acknowledge it with gratitude.
This can take many forms, including expressing your gratitude to the person who extended the kindness to you. It could also take the form of paying the kindness forward to someone else, or simply by telling a friend or family member about it and why you feel gratitude for it.
As with each of these kind action suggestions, personalize your action so it provides the most meaning for you.
