How an Unexpected Act of Kindness Set Off a Chain Reaction

I believe that every act of kindness isn't random, it's intentional. It's a deliberate choice to generously and selflessly do something for the sake of someone else. It's never random, just unexpected. When unexpected acts of kindness are given to me, I'm utterly humbled.

Last Thursday, I checked my Facebook news feed, and I saw this:


My friend Ana from the Tierra Dulce Shop wrote these kind words about Nourishment Notes and me. I totally didn't expect it. Right after I saw this, I had a huge smile on my face. I couldn't stop smiling for some time after. People say that a smile is contagious, so Ana's act of kindness probably started a chain reaction of countless smiles. 

Who knows how many people saw me smile. I wonder how many people couldn't help but smile when they saw me glowing from ear to ear. It's almost impossible to know what happened after that, but I'm sure it was good.
