Chain of Love by Clay Walker is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard. I tear up every time I listen to it. If you haven’t heard it, take a listen!
When I was a teenager, my adopted mom gave me a pin that said, “Practice random acts of kindness and senseless beauty.” She told me that she gave it to me because it reminded her of me. I was so touched by that, and kept it in my pocket like a worry stone for a long time.
I’ve recently met a person who lives this better than anyone I’ve ever met before. And the one thing I realized is that people who do practice random acts of kindness become beautiful or are beautiful just because of these actions. It’s like a beautiful action rubs off onto someone’s physical appearance!
Very few good people can see their own loveliness, and I’m not speaking physically. They see their flaws and their mistakes, their periods of imperfection, and their funny little quirks. A truly beautiful person encompasses flaws as well as beauty. What could truly be beautiful in a person who had no flaws?
Practicing random acts of kindness is easier than it appears, because you can do small things for people instead of just big things. A compliment can go a long way, or even small little gifts of service, time or novelty items can turn someone’s day around. Sometimes I think it’s the random acts of kindness from strangers that have been some of the most beautiful moments in my life. Maybe we can’t all make a big difference in increasing loveliness in the world, but a small difference? You betcha!
If you think of it, take some time out today to recognize a beautiful person in your own life.
