A Small Act of Kindness
The storms of life take its toll on individuals at times. It seems as though sometimes our circumstances have no beginning or end. In our minds life is too hard to muster. Individuals are laden with stress, depression, anxiety; leaving them overwhelmed, putting up walls and developing more problems and then more problems soon to find themselves in a state of despair and nowhere to turn.
Let’s make the shift now with paying it forward, random acts of kindness and just one small act of kindness. Enter farms, agriculture, horses, nature and the ability to just breath and be part of something bigger than ourselves. God planted the world with all of its beauty. Because we have so many people and so much technology we have forgotten what it is like to live off the land and what a true act of kindness in honoring the peace that nature provides. Smell the flowers, watch the combine, hear the grain, ride the horses, breath the smell, play games like tag, hide and seek, red rover, and many other simple games. Learn about life lessons through the interaction of horses, cats, dogs, rabbits and other livestock.
Enter the door of the barn can you feel the peace, smell the hay and horses. What a beautiful smell. Now can you touch the hay, touch and pet the horses, pet the cats and just breathe. Just take a very deep breathe. Now feel the walls, feel the stalls, picture the barn in your mind, picture the cornfields, bean fields, picture the grain bins and the old buildings. Let’s pet the horses again and breathe. Can you feel the shift? Can you feel the love breathing in and breathing out?
A small act of kindness means that individuals are able to experience this environment with all of its beauty and then magic begins to happen. A small act of kindness has changed someone’s life forever. They can go to school with lots of energy and self-confidence. They can go in public and not be afraid. They can solve problems and they can love again. God provided us with a setting and they give themselves permission to breathe it in and experience the moment. A small act of kindness has changed a life forever. God has provided us with a very special dream.
