When I put out a call-to-action on Facebook asking friends and family to share heart warming stories of compassion for my Soul Candy series, I received an overwhelming response. This one comes from my friend Arlene who lives in Florida and witnessed how one simple gesture could make someone's day.
I'm so excited to be getting submissions for this new feature. Soul Candy is a new series where I want to share your stories! If you notice a random act of kindness, or participate in one yourself, please share your uplifting story with me so I can spread the light. This story came in from a reader who would like to remain anonymous. It actually landed in my inbox when I needed a smile myself.
As someone who's always trying to see the world through a compassionate, optimistic lens, I'm excited to start a new series showcasing random acts of kindness featuring heart warming stories that show the love and kindness in the world. I don't know about you, but I despise watching the news. The mainstream media typically likes to exaggerate and exhaust any story that showcases sadness, violence and horror just to get people to tune in for ratings. It's sickening. Living in a world of terror, it's important to remember, that we're also still living in a world of love. I invite you, my readers, to also submit your random acts of kindness stories via email as I'd love to spread the word!
