1. Introduction

With the way the world is right now, kindness, and random acts of kindness can make an even bigger difference and impact to someone more than usual.

During these times of the pandemic, social distancing, self-isolating it can be quite easy to feel down, alone, scared to name a few feelings at this time.

A good deed or a kind deed could literally light up someone’s day and could be the difference between them having a good day or bad one. Knowing that there is still faith in humanity it truly is a good feeling.

The littlest or smallest things make the hugest difference, whether it be a message or a phone call from family or a friend. Or a video call with family and friends these moments are always precious, but should they happen in a moment where you might be feeling low, it can uplift your spirit, mind, and soul. These are treasured and priceless moments. They can make you feel happy from the inside out.

Kindness is good for the soul, and if kindness comes from a stranger it can be even more uplifting. An example of this in these times of social distancing, just by someone saying hello or paying you a compliment it is a nice feeling. I went into a shop and someone complimented me on my shoes, to be honest, I could not even remember what shoes I had put on, and my mind was focused on making sure I was keeping the correct distance, so that compliment completely lifted me out of “coronavirus, pandemic mode” and made me feel some sort of normality. It was a nice feeling.

As an example, my mum had a hospital appointment recently. She was not feeling too good on this particular day. Many people helped us. It was overwhelming but in a nice way. Both my mum and I noticed these acts of kindness. We could not express how much we appreciated them. To the person, it could just be doing something that came naturally, but for us, as we were struggling it really uplifted us, it was humbling, and we were so grateful. Many people helped us out on that day, and we are eternally grateful to them all.

Another example our mum told us ahout a time she was shopping. She was at the checkout and as she was told the total she was about to pay and the person behind her in the queue said they would pay the bill. Our mum was shocked by this and said, no, its okay you do not need to do this. They said no, they would to do it, they wanted to do it, and so my mum agreed. She was humbled and grateful for this act of kindness. What was quite significant about this is that same week in her chuch random acts of kindness was spoken about, and the example of someone randomly paying for your shopping was spoken about. (This was before the pandemic).

When the pandemic first began, everyone was more or less in the same position:

  • A majority of people were not working.
  • A majority of people were working from home.
  • A majority of people were only leaving the house for essential shopping or for one hour of exercise.

The Nation and the world were unified.

Now in this lockdown, there are more people at work (i.e. more key workers), so the dynamic has changed:

  • There are people who go to work so are out of the house daily, or intermittently throughout the week.
  • There are people working from home, going shopping, doing exercise.
  • There are some people who might not be able to leave their house. (They could be required to be shielding).
  • The point with this is as we are now more divided in our circumstances, acts of kindness are even more important.

Little things count and can light up your soul. For me what I know but maybe try to not focus on is that human interaction is so important, and we are used to interacting with people face to face, so the past year has been extremely difficult.

My sister and I try our best to help and spread awareness of causes or matters that we feel might not get its rightful recognition, that is why when we found out about this, we wanted to make it a topic.
