What it means to me
"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." Robert Brault
Gratitude to me, I think of gratitude as giving back to the people that help you throughout out your life like mentors. When I think of gratitude I think of my parents because they put me on this earth and they do whatever they can to keep my alive. I love them for that and that is not easy to pay back, I do small things for them but they appreciate them a lot. For example, I do all my chores without them asking, help around the house, and use most of my allowance money to buy them presents for special occasions. To me that is gratitude, I try to give back as much as I can and I am very thankful for what my parents have done and provided me over the years.
Act of Kindness
“Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference.” - Kevin Heath
Acts of kindness, I believe that random acts of kindness can help brighten up anyone's day. If you can help someone by opening a door for them when they are carrying something or sitting next to someone who is sitting alone at lunch can help that person. Think about it they could be going through something tough at home and you might have just made them feel better. I try to do at least 1 random act of kindness a day, if we as people could get everyone to do that, the world would be a lot better place. So lets spread the word and help people that need to be helped.
I enjoyed this book because it was about a boy who started out with a rough childhood and didn't have many friends but found a profession football player in the park and ended up being friends with him. Great book to read if you are into sports type of things.
