'Love, XYZ' : Compassion from Strangers #AtoZChallenge #WATWB - GODYEARS

'Love, XYZ' : Compassion from Strangers #AtoZChallenge #WATWB

April 28, 2017

What if, instead of the constant photos of hatred and photoshopped images spewing distrust, you chose to share images of random acts of kindness? 
Would it really be that bad a thing?

Each image below tells a story. A story of kindness and humanity that needs no explanation from me.

When you come across messages and images like these online, actively share them on social media. Brighten the day of people on your timeline with hope instead of darkening it.

Remind people that there is no shortage of kindness. 

It is just a matter of choosing to either find it or be the giver of it yourself. And you can start right now with a simple message to anyone in your life who needs it today.



This is part of my #AtoZChallenge where I will be focusing on Real Life Heroes: Shining Examples of Kindness and Compassion. You can find other real-life heroes here.

This post is also part of the 'We Are The World Blogfest' (you can read about it here). Aimed at flooding social media with peace and love, bloggers from around the world will look to share stories of love and humanity on the last Friday of every month to help bring a smile on your face and give you hope too.

Co-hosts this month are:Belinda WitzenhausenSimon FalkInderpreet Kaur UppalMary J. Giese and Peter Nena
You can read more feel-good posts (and also add your own, if you want to share the joy with #WATWB) in the linky here.

  9. So many of these messages brought a lump to my throat...the 95 yr old with $7 short, the offer for free food, water, or the offer of a ride....heartwarming!! Indeed, sharing such messages of goodness is much better than the hate messages we see nowadays.
    Beautiful..beautiful..post.

  11. I love all of the good deeds, but especially the woman who helped buy the 95 year old man his flowers. I would have been crying too. So cool, this tells me that the goodness of humanity far outweighs the bad. I'm proud to be part of this blogfest, to share the good news!

  12. Sometimes it's the smallest thing that can make a mark in someone's life. Hold a door, clean a window, hold the elevator, a small compliment.

  13. I wished for more! This post would never be enough to be honest! Loved it so much!

  14. I had seen a couple of these, but most of these images are new to me! Just goes to show how quickly bad news and hatred spreads. Kindness goes unseen. Thank you for shining the light, doc. Thanks for sharing these beautiful stories all this month.

  15. This warmed my heart. There is a young girl (17) I follow on Twitter, and I try to say nice things to her as she has no confidence in herself and suffers from depression. If a word or two makes a difference, I hope it brightens her day.
    We need more kindness in the world. Stop looking for someone else to make the first step. Lead by example.
    Thank you for sharing these wonderful stories.

  22. Your post encapsulates a quote that I have outside my classroom on the bulletin board: "If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction."
    Thank you for this wonderful post including the images/snippets of everyday random acts of kindness!
    My heart feels lighter!
