I believe that kindness is one of the most important human characteristics. It is not that hard to say a simple 'thank you', and yet it can really change the outlook of someone else's day. My sister once told me “It takes more muscles to frown than to smile.” I have noticed that just being polite to the people around you can really make the atmosphere around you more positive. I can think of a lot of examples of when being polite has made things a little smoother, including one at the doctor's office. As I was heading to my appointment at the doctor's office, I entered an elevator to go to the third floor where my doctor's office is located. As I entered the elevator I pressed the button and waited for the door to close. I was running a few minutes late and I was a little concerned that I would not make my appointment in time. I noticed an old man enter the building and slowly make his way to the elevator. Instead of allowing the elevator door to close on the old mans shrivled body I generously steped in and help the old man out instead of turning my head and proceding to my much anticipated appointment. I belive that any act of kindness doesn’t go unnoticed “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” this is a quote by Aesop a very inspirational author who has influenced my life by trying to help others out. So everyday you should try and do atleast one act of kindness in hope that that person will pass it on so I would like to share a very inspirational quote “Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end” (Scott Adams).
