Episode 89 Random Acts of Kindness – Boots on the Ground
Random Acts of Kindness – Boots on the Ground
It’s an inside job
“Along your pathway of life, you will observe that you are not the only traveler. There are others who need your help. There are feet to steady, hands to grasp, minds to encourage, hearts to inspire, and souls to save.”
–Thomas S. Monson, Past Prophet of the LDS Church
Random Acts of Kindness are a thing. There are groups, websites, and people who rally others to get out and focus on acts of kindness and the creation of goodness and service on purpose. I am one of those who has served as a herald to help rally others into the RAK movement. I created groups and get-togethers for people who want to use this life story tool for bringing some good into the world. During two of these meet-ups I interviewed the people involved so we could get a real BOOTS ON THE GROUND retelling of what it was like. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration from their stories. The cover photo is a group in Ohio that I was a part of. We made a sign saying we were giving away free hugs. The guy in the middle is one of the people we hugged, a man who wanted a picture with us to remember others reaching out to him.
Enjoy the episode and I hope it will inspire you to maybe find your own RAK today.
