It’s Memorial Day in the United States and as a way to consider centering in our minds the sacrifice others have made on our behalf, I offer this exercise — to engage in multiple acts of service this week.
Start this right away and make it a serious practice throughout the week. These do not have to be big at all.
If you’ve followed Kind Living for a while, I hope you’ve come to see that opportunities to do something kind, nice, generous, and thoughtful are readily available to us. Complete some for family, for friends, for strangers. Perform them spontaneously and plan some in advance.
The key thing here, the absolutely most important thing, is that you perform these acts for the reward you get doing them, not as a down payment on future favors you expect to be performed for you.
