Random acts of kindness is an act that really took off in 2018. People wanted to do something for someone else and feel good, of course I’d been doing this anyway but never really thought about it as a random act of kindness and just something that came naturally, for example I was in Southampton early 2018 and I chucked some coins in a buskers pot because he did Ed Sheeran beautifully; that would be a random act of kindness.
Oh if anyone knows who this is, let me know because if he has work out I NEED to buy it!

Was in Southampton today picking up a new Mac for Matt. An amazing artist (busker) performing outside Primark! One of the best voices I’ve heard while shopping in a while!! * * * * #busker #southampton #shopping #singer #performer #artist #travel #mac #apple #applestore #blogger #travelblogger #travelblog #gay #LGBT #cubs #gaysontour #gaytravel #cubsontour #guy
I’ve decided that it’s time I took at look at what I actually do and the impact it can have one not only my mental health but everyone elses. At the end of the day you’re going something nice for someone else and that can make them feel amazing, knowing that someone is thinking of them can be life changing.
At the same time you need to realise that it can have a huge benefit on your own mental health. It can be really tough having mental health, feeling like everyone is against you and that at the end of the day you might be thinking you won’t amount to anything or make a difference. With just one act of kindness, random or not you can change all that; knowing that you have changed someones life!
Don’t worry though, it doesn’t have to involve money. I know many people get put off doing something nice because they’re afraid it’s going to cost them and lets face it these days everyones a little broke. In fact it can be as little as sending someone a text when you know they’re going through a tough time. If people had text or given me a call when I was younger I wouldn’t have been feeling the way I was so often.
It’s totally worth it. I might even give you quartley updates on acts of kindness that I’ve performed. It’s not that I want to throw it in your face that I’m doing so much because that’s not it. I want to show you that it can be something tiny or something huge, they can both make a difference!
If you’re totally in random acts of kindness, let me know in the comments. I think it’s an amazing thing to get into and anyone can really make a difference. I read once that simply waving at someone from a car can change their whole day, I must admit that I’ve been waved at before and it’s put a smile on my face! Don’t wave if you’re driving!!
