Connecting to caring starts with the simplest of acts like a smile or hello. Then when we find how really good we feel as we give to others, the momentum builds.

This is the open secret: giving to others gives to yourself even more.
Often I get the most inspired by stories of a simple act of kindness that someone did for another, without any other motive except to be kind. I especially love the story of how much a small act can completely steer someone in a positive direction that they may not have gone.
Here is a story of a man who paid peoples groceries at random. I am so inspired by this and plan to do my own version. Want to join me?
