Another week has come and gone, and all week long I noticed the goodness in people around me.
It was many little things that could go unnoticed, but instead, were noticed.
It was efforts to laugh at others' jokes when the jokes weren't very funny, to give gifts when they were unexpected, to give a hand to hold when a hand was needed.
It was a well-dressed businessman standing in the cold winter air, holding a college door open for many young strangers.
It was a beautiful friend reaching out to me, sending an email to let me know she was thinking of me.
It was a caring manager sitting across from me at a meeting table, telling me I can rely on her.
In one week, many little moments like these made me remember why I want to focus on kindness: kindness makes me incredibly happy.
To know that people want to do good is to know that there is hope for more good. And, I need to know that. Don't you?
