Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Sharing Gratitude


--by 4abetterworld, posted Mar 27, 2023
I am still on holiday here in beautiful Iceland. I have practiced some teensy-weensy acts of kindness such as smiling at people or making some smalltalk.

Yesterday, I went a step further. Went into the local church and sat for about an hour thinking about every every single person who I am grateful for - even the ones who have given me a hard time over the years. Bad experiences are teachers too.

It was hard to concentrate as it was rather loud due to maintenance work. I found myself thinking about people I have known, encountered over the decades, the ones that especially made a lasting impression on me and tried to visualise their faces in my mind's eye. Wished them all the very best as I did so.

I also thought of our beautiful planet and silently expressed my gratitude for the stars, the sun, the moon, the water, all flora and fauna and suchlike because without nature we are nothing.

Then at the end, I made a personal wish and I noticed that everything was suddenly peaceful all around me and the sun was shining through the window just across from me.
And a few lovely things were to be observed which made me smile. I then lit a candle and wished for peace in every single person and peace in our world and went on my way.
