Hello and welcome to another week in the MKMMA journey.
This week we are identifying KINDNESS because has you know what we identify will multiply.
It is amazing how great and good people are but must of time all they need is some inspiration, or incentive.
We live in a world where it seems that nothing is done for free…not any more
Me and my MKMMA buddies are changing the world this week, it is over 200 persons doing at least 2 kindness actions per day without any credit, the goal is not get caught, but if we are that is ok.
There are so many little things you can do to make the world a better place, simple things like hold the door for someone, let a car go first in the row, clean the table after your coffee in the cafe shop, buy a coffee to a stranger, or pay for is toll, help someone with groceries, etc! I will put a full list below !
I want to share a litle one that happens this I tough was so cool! On my coffee break i went and buy some cookies for my friends in the office. It is a little office we are 5 in total working there. The lady from the cafe shop, saw it and asked, “so Rui is today a especial day ?” I replied “No, Just trying to make the world a better place”
She went in and come back in a few seconds full of chocolates, one for each, and said, “that is great. Let me contribute and gave one chocolate for each of us.”
I found that so profound, and make me feel so good.
