random acts of kindness

do you calculate how many times you do a "good deed for the day" or just do something for somebody and not keep count.

Any random act of kindness that I do during the day is simply for the fun of doing something nice for someone when they do not expect it. If I do it for the Karma then I did it for me for me and not for them. :)

I love doing things for other people. It actually makes my day feel so much more productive. I knit sew and crochet and often make something just to cheer someone up. :wave:

Random acts of kindness seem to mean more to people and I find that a lot of people are really surprised when they are the recipent of these random acts.  At first I may receive a rather inquisitive look and then the look of realization that it is a true act and not some sort of sceam.  I, like so many others have a soft spot in my heart for the elderly and the very young.  God bless the people who perform random acts of kindness

What would be the purpose of keeping count?   :dontknow:

Has anyone else noticed that when you do a random act of kindness, when you "go the extra mile", when you try to make others happy---that when these people that you have been "extra nice" too (even when they get on your last nerve) see you again, they expect you to "take care of them" everytime after that???  They expect you to "cater" to them, do everything for them and they are now so friggin' lazy they can't even bend over to pick something up that they dropped and they have the nerve to tell (not ask---TELL) you to get it and they don't even say thanks? They now are acting so helpless...they can't do a thing for themselves.  REALLY?? (And these are not senior citizens I am talking about that need help with stuff sometimes).  It's like everybody all of a sudden expects me to "take care of them" and it's not my obligation or my job. I'll still spread the kindness but where the lazy & helpless are concerned...it's wearing really thin!! It is really upsetting me how unthoughtful, rude, impolite & inconsiderate alot of people can be lately.  It's like it never occurs to them to spread some kindness around themselves. What gives?

I think a random act of kindness is a beautiful thing.  It's spontaneous. I think sometimes people confuse random acts of kindness with charity. They are different charity is something that is deliberate. You plan to do a kindness. A random act of kindness occurs in the moment you just follow the goodness in your own being. :peace: :peace: :peace:

I dont count because i dont feel like its a competition but i am trying to do as much as i can even if it is small things like holding the door. I just think helping is so important people need to stop being selfish and think of others and how grateful they are i am really trying to do this. You never know how one small thing that takes you a few seconds or minutes can really help someone. Some things go along way

Who would keep a count?   :dontknow: That would sorta defeat the purpose of "random" acts of kindness if you were doing it on purpose to keep count and pat yourself on the back, would it not?

Unless you strictly do as in that one movie, pass it forward, and do 3 acts of kindness for every one shown to you, I dont see anyone keeping a count of themselves, maybe others out of curiousity but not themselves.
