A simple powerful video is going around. The message is as simple as it is inspiring: do good and good will come back to you.
The video is a Thai ad, and it follows a young man going about his routine doing simple, random acts of kindness. From diverting the runoff water onto a dead potted plant to helping a street vendor with her cart. He feeds a homeless dog and then goes on to give all the contents of his wallet to a homeless woman and a daughter that aspires to go to school.
All the while, strangers look, on and disapprove of his actions.
Random acts of kindness are not something that should be done once and then bragged on social media about. They should be done without a second thought, just because they are the right thing to do.
If you see someone who needs help, and are able to provide it to them, help them.
This is what humanity should be about, helping one another in any way we can, whether it’s giving up our seat on public transportation or being kind to a plant, an animal, or a fellow human being.
We are not alone in the universe, your life is not the only one that matters. In fact, it matters very little when you don’t take advantage of every opportunity you have to help make a difference in the world.
Watch the powerful video and be inspired to do good, even if it involves simple random acts of kindness, you will find that your life will transform for the better, in the most unexpected ways.
