Random Acts of Kindness Award!

Oh look at this award name! β€œRandom Acts Of Kindness” and someone thought that I deserve to be nominated!
This is so kind of you dear Steve and thank you so much for this kind nomination! 😁

Don’t know what can I say about Steve and didn’t mention it before: Oh Steve likes warm places, this is totally new πŸ˜‚
Steve has surprised us lately with his talent in writing good and funny poems, actually both Steve and Muffin are so talented! 😊 😊
Steve is one of the kindest and most respectful bloggers out there, and his coffee breaks are always amazing and enjoyable! Check his blog for more:

No questions involved in this award but we must share our experience with an act of kindness we did or witnessed.

Rules:

  • Thank the person nominating you, and tag them.
  • Write a paragraph or more on the experience of an act of kindness or something you have read or seen, or done, yourself
  • Nominate three people who have to follow the rules and do the same as written above
  • Paste and copy the picture from above on your post. Let the people you nominated know they have been nominated

I’m usually a very kind person but I find it hard to list the things I did for another people, I usually intervene to provide help or assistance whenever I can, even if sometimes people are rude and disrespectful, but I do what I’m convinced to do and what I find right despite. I instantly smile when someone accidentally look at me (except few cases of course).
But instead of listing the things I have done or witnessed someone did it, I will post a video I love and a post I wrote only about kindness so hope you will enjoy them!

Kindness

/2019/01/03/kindness/

Whatever you do in life, whether you learn something new every year, you have BA, master, many certificates and high level educations, buy new stuff, buy branded clothes, hi-tech electronics and stuff, whether you are super smart and beautiful…You will find that someone else just did it, or someone is better than you or like you.
Someone has invented things you thought about, opened businesses you wanted to have, you feel that there is a lot of everything, too much competition, too much information, too much things…you feel that your ideas or feelings are outdated, you are so left behind, many have been there, did what you wanted to do.
There is too much of everything! Except kindness, it is so so few… being kind and nice will always be creative! And it’s never outdated.
Just be kind and expect nothing in return…

When I go back and remember all the people that were in my life, that never forget about me despite the distance and time, I find only one reason: I was nice! They didn’t care if I was smart, and I wasn’t rich nor famous…I had nothing to give…but I was kind! Something I lost maybe years later, I’ve become more rigid and intimidating…because I couldn’t handle the heavy burden of being alone in a world full of hatred, hypocrisy and fake people…I was standing alone and I felt a huge responsibility, a lot of pressure! I wasn’t that strong so I just fell apart, the storm was huge and everybody ran away…and few have the guts to get close to me since…

But when I sit alone, I miss the old nice me, I miss the kind person that was simply kind without expectations or limitations, that didn’t care what people might think or might take advantage of, and these people couldn’t forget me! Like ever…
I changed many lives by just being kind, it wasn’t easy but I let go of all the judgment, expectations and even misuse and exploitation of some people.Β Β  I just let go because I know that only buy forgiving and letting go, you change people lives even if you are not part of it. And this is the hardest part!

Be kind and expect nothing in return. Life in 6 words but it will take you a life time to realize that! And probably you will never do!

      • I’m good thank you for asking, how about you?
        And by the way, my comment on Ilona post wasn’t against you as a person and not asking about me, but as a blogger…So you didn’t find in this post something to say except « congratulationsΒ Β» ??Just saying…
        And if my words offend you, feel free to unfollow me please
        Thank you πŸ™πŸ»

      • I’m doing good too! πŸ€—
        I know, I’m sorry I should have understood and no I am not going to unfollow you. You are very right, I was in a rush when I jsaw your post and felt to say congratulations. You are so strong minded and I didn’t take any offence, it is infact a pleasure to meet you! πŸ˜‡

        Lots of love,
        Saania ❀️

      • Appreciate your positive attitude regarding this 😊 let me tell you that you don’t have to say anything at all, it’s not like obligatory and if you’re not comfortable to interact, just don’t do it, it’s all good! Many people have good content and I don’t feel like speaking to them so I don’t, it’s so simple.
        But when you decide to comment, do it to judge a content, and I believe my content is not shallow, even the awards I always include information and lot of ideas…this one includes an important post and very important topic as well…
        I blocked other people without speaking to them but since your attitude was positive I do appreciate that and thank you for your kind words about my character, I do appreciate your respect so much πŸ™πŸ»
        Lots of love to you as well ❀️

      • I don’t think there is any need for me to argue, we are all friends and learn from each other πŸ˜‡
        And I for sure value what you say!
        A very happy Wednesday to you, hugs! πŸ’–πŸ€—

      • OMG πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ time for bed then ?? πŸ˜‚
        That was a joke
        I read you are 14 somewhere and I was surprised actually but you can write very well when you’re comfortable so hope someday you’ll be comfortable to write something on my posts πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  1. The gif at the end 😍😍😍😍. What a lovely one! The way you wrote it as wellπŸ’™. And it’s just that there’s a very sense of goodness that you feel when you help anyone, it may not last a while but it sure does feel good. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘I feel good even if I water a plant πŸ˜‚πŸ™ƒ

    • Thank you Sid 😊 yes this man is so brave! Not so many are willing to do that!
      It feels great to do good actually! Watering a plant also counts πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
      Thank you for reading and for the kind comment 😊

  2. Fantastic Huguette!! I knew this was a good award for you. So few seem to want to give kindness these days, and you’re right, it’s be kind and expect nothing in return and it feels so good when we give that kindness to someone even if we get beat up in the process. Wonderful post Huguette! Hope your day is going well!πŸ˜„πŸŒžπŸ˜Έ

    • Thank you Steve for giving me this opportunity 😊 so glad you loved it 🌞
      Eventually it’s the only thing that will last actually! Being kind and change someone’s day or life
      My day is good hope you’ll enjoy your sunny day πŸŒžπŸŒžπŸ“ΈπŸ˜πŸ˜Έ

      • You are right, that is one thing that will last. I used to enjoy going around to older people and visit with them, help them with yard work, take them shopping or do shopping for them. Sometimes just sit and have tea with them and talk. They so enjoyed this little bit of kindness, so did I. Rusty and Sylvester are busy this morning! Better get them some more peanuts.πŸ˜„πŸΏπŸŒž

      • This is actually great! People nowadays need someone to ask them how they are doing, small gestures are so big these days because they are so rare
        Oh Rusty and Sylvester are there 😸 this is great πŸ‘ wish you a great day 🌞🌞😸

      • Oh Steve and Huguette, I’m going to post on a little kitten that found his way into my kitchen, he’s now fostered as I have 8 and couldn’t take in another.
        Felt terrible to give him away but can’t cut his blessings as I foresee a fine future for him.

      • Sounds cool! Always good when another kitten can get a good new home! Look forward to reading about that. Might take me a couple days to get my reading back on schedule again!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ί

      • Oh this is so cute! You have already 8 😯 this is great! But you did the right thing, someone else will certainly take care of him πŸ™‚

      • Thanks Huguette! It was a long day coming back, both planes were late, adding more time to the trip. There was 11.5 hours flying time, plus 3 hours in airports and 3 hour drive home, a very long day!βœˆπŸ›«πŸ›¬ Muffin is very happy again now and she seems back to normal again.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸŒžπŸŒž

      • Welcome back and sorry for the hassle! Very long trip indeed πŸ˜• must be very tiring! Have good rest and glad to know Muffin is good and happy 😸😸🌞🌞🌞

      • We are both happy for sure, Muffin seems quite normal again. I was so tired yesterday but refreshed and ready to go again today! Have a great day Huguette!πŸ˜ƒπŸŒžπŸ˜Ί

  3. Of course you deserve it and from an Adolf Hitler to another I congratulate you πŸ₯³πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‰
    I love this video πŸ’• I’ve seen it so many times and every time I’m moved to tears πŸ’•πŸ’•
    You are very true, unfortunately kindness is missing in this world and every day I feel is worst…and people prove it.
    It is so simple yet so difficult for some…what costs you to be kind? Nothing? Is same as smiling, it costs nothing and can do so good πŸ’•πŸ’•
    “Be kind and expect nothing in return” everybody should memorise these 6 words and put them in practice in their every day life πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸŒΈπŸ˜‰
    Thank you for this award! I’m glad to see that my kindness is seen by some πŸ’•πŸ˜‰ as I said between Adolf Hitlers we understand each other πŸ˜‰πŸ€—πŸ’•

    • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚hail hitler πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      At least we know how to be kind more than many other people right??
      This video always makes me so emotional 😭
      You see the problem that everybody is complaining and no one wants to start from theirselves πŸ˜•πŸ˜• so weird! And when they spot a kind person, they use them! This is why I turn into Hitler actually πŸ˜‚
      Yes of course you’re very kind more than lot of people that pretend they are and looking forward for your post πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•

      • 🀣🀣🀣 yes, I guess in the end we are πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ
        Yes, of course, they like to use the kind people, but don’t worry, they’ll get their turn too πŸ˜‰πŸ’•
        Thank you always for your kind words πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•

      • 😁😁
        Karma is a bitch I know but I still prefer instant Karma 😌😌
        It’s always a pleasure ans enjoy the evening πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  4. Congratulation, and I always enjoy your answers, and like we allready have found out we are a bit like❀️
    Thank you for being you❀️
    Enjoy your day.

  5. Hello dear Huguette , my congratulations for this beautiful Award well deserved πŸ’“ , your words were so true and meaningful , especially when you said that we always can be creative with kindness 😘
    Unfortunately nowadays this quality is left behind and no one cares anymore!
    Being a person who tries to do her best for helping people , sometimes when the accumulation of bad things , pushs me to say to my inner me ,why why this happened to me I’ve always been a good and kind person who helps everyone , then in sad moments like that i just say ok I’ll no more be that kind and generous girl, but funny thing is that deep inside when you are a kind and a caring person ,you know that you will never be able to change this nature , even if you get all the strength and power of the world !
    In fact I always thank god for this amazing quality ,been able to be kind is a gift, because out there there is a world full of hate and superficial persons!
    I think that it should be the main quality to learn and educate ourselves with !
    You were right when you said that there is few , really few kindness in world, it’s like it’s going to disappear if it continues this way, a sad reality πŸ˜₯
    Thank you a lot for this wonderful post , have a good day πŸ’“

    • Hello my dearest Souad and thank you for reading and this sweet comment 😊 I do understand what you mean and this is why I said we shouldn’t expect anything in return, moreover sometimes we must expect hurt in return as it happened to me many times and like you, I always say I don’t want to be kind and anyway years made me more rigid as I said and I intimidate people but the fact is I’m nice! I’m kind and I don’t like to hurt anyone…
      I believe it’s a hard mission and I do feel your frustration but we are whom we are and we should be proud for being good and kind people in this era, we should really be proud and you are right to be thankful for this gift, this is really a great gift and I’m sure that you are shining like a candle in a dark room! ❀️
      Have a great day as well πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

  6. Congrajulations Huguette, i was so involved with the share, that video was one of my fav then and now and that post indeed what u mentioned at end is the hardest part(forgiving and letting go) How and why you shocked me at the end it took sometime to accept it😲. i was nominated by Huguette πŸ€— Im proud and grateful for my First nomination from a honest and most talented blogger. πŸ₯°U made my dayπŸ₯°

    • Thank you Simon for reading and for the kind words 😊believe me you deserve this award and looking forward to your post 😊 so glad it made your day 😁
      this video is more than amazing actually and glad you liked the post as well πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Š

      • Thanks for your motivation Huguette πŸ₯°, you are my Great supporter and motivator. Im nervousπŸ˜€ My First award πŸ€— .. I will post as soon i reach home πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘βœοΈ

      • This is great that you are nervous 😁don’t worry take your time and recently I stopped nominating people on other awards but asked them to claim it, so if you want to claim any previous award, be my guest, I will add your name πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

      • Hi, Hope you liked my first post on this award. I Hope i did my best in nominations. Anything wrong, or if anything i did is maybe i misunderstood this award. You be honest in this. I know u will. I dont mind getting uncomfortable with your comments.

      • Hello Simon, yes sure the post was very good and I commented already, nothing is wrong at all and it’s related of course 😊
        Don’t worry, I will always give my comments honestly 😊

  7. Hi Huguette, Congratulations on this award. And placing Chelsea Handler’s GIF from the start, you made me smile. Come on girl you are “kind” you maybe frank, but you are kind. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ You are responding to my comments and you’re not ignoring me no matter how senseless I am sometimes, that is a total act of kindness. πŸ™‚ You go girl. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much for reading and for the kind words πŸ™‚ I appreciate it! I certainly don’t ignore people until they cross some line or I decide to unfollow them then whatever they do, I will ignore them! But I never ignore the people that take time to read my content and leave a nice comment πŸ™‚ And you’re not senseless πŸ™‚ Have a great day

  8. Good evening, you deserved the award, you are kind, you know for people who is really kind is always difficult to make the list of what kind of kindness they have done, because they help and they forget, they going forward with their kindness. Loving the video and music in it, as i said in one of my posts it cost 0,00 dollars to be kind or nice, my motto Just be kind and expect nothing in return… It may come to you in the different ways, maybe after few years, there no need to sit and wait for it. There no need to give good conversation matters, someone who understand and can give good advices, someone with who you can feel comfortable. I know what you meant when you said you miss old you, the world made you who you are, i was use to trust people and be nice with them and now i created so many barriers for myself, for example: there i dont go, with this one i dont talk, now i better dont say a word, i limited myself for my own safety and goodness, thank you for nominating me❀️it was very kind of you, well 3 or 5 rules breaking happens, i’m breaking rules of awards those days😁

    • Thank you dear Ilona for reading and for your kind comment πŸ™‚ I actually not only I forget, I don’t like to mention as well the things I do because we shouldn’t…I never wait for something in return but I know that “what goes around comes around” whatever you do will go back to you, good or bad…It’s hard sometimes to believe that when you feel everything is going bad despite how good you are but still, everything will take its right place eventually
      The old me costs me a lot! But I miss it sometimes, I was really kind and stupid haha anyway now I intimidate people as I said and few have the courage to even speak with me sometimes, maybe it’s better these days!
      You also deserve the nomination, because you are very kind person and you care about others and respect others and this is such a great quality ❀ Yes I thought that since no questions, people will not mind! Have a great day πŸ™‚

  9. Awwwww! I have literally re written this comment a thousand times. I don’t know how to thank you for this amazing nomination huguette. This made my day!πŸ€—πŸ’•
    Also, you have no idea, you absolutely deserve this award. You’re so nice and when my notification says your name. It fills me with utmost joy. Keep on rocking your amazing personality πŸ€—πŸ’•
    Have a great day ahead πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

    • 1000 times πŸ€”πŸ€” you could do much better than that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      I’m really humbled by your kind words while some see me as Hitler πŸ€“πŸ€“
      Definitely you’re a very kind person in both your personalities and blogs😊 I can turn into a total jerk but you’re not certainly 😊
      Looking forward to reading your post πŸ€—πŸ’•

      • 🀣🀣🀣 I agree! I need to do better. Ms eager beaver won’t be proud πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha! C’mon. You’re savage to the ones who use this platform as a place to fish for fans and followers. Girl! I ain’t judging you for that πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ƒ
        Awww! So are you πŸ€—πŸ’•
        C’mon! You rock girl! And let’s be honest, we need some reality at the platform, don’t we?😌😌
        I am really looking forward to writing it.πŸ€—πŸ’• But I would like to borrow myself some time. I am struggling with two blogs!πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ You had to create 2 blogs so you make yourself busier huh?? no hope from you πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ what’s your horoscope by the way?? I always say I wanna ask you
        AT least you and some fellow bloggers appreciate my honesty and direct way, and this is enough for me especially after knowing these people and know how smart and special they are, so I feel proud because I care about quality so much! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• take your time but don’t take your time! Got it Gauri?? 😎😎😎 I’m watching you πŸ™„πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜

      • 🀣🀣 I know! That wasn’t a smart decision! But it makes me happier 😊😊
        Haha! I am a leo. And newspapers have never given me “normal” daily horoscopesπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Awwww! That’s so sweet πŸ€—πŸ’•
        Of course! We appreciate you and love your presence here!😊😊
        Haha! I won’t lie, took me a second to understand that. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        😲😳😲😳 Looks around for butterfliesπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      • If it’s make you happier then it’s certainly wise 😊
        Leo! I knew it! But unfortunately I have complicated relationship with Leo, some are perfect and some are terribly weird full of misunderstanding , oh well no normal for you πŸ˜‚
        No butterflies nowadays it’s honey bees πŸ˜‚
        Thank you for the kindness and enjoy your time πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

      • Hehe! Yeah. It makes me very happy 😊
        Haha! How did you know? It always astonishes me when people predict my zodiac sign.πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
        Haha! Very true. Leos and Normal don’t go well together πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha! Honey bees… So many of themπŸ˜…πŸπŸ
        Aww! My pleasure 😊. You too, have a lovely day ahead πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

      • From some answers on various questions, your character that some writings reflect…I concluded you’re a Leo but it was just an assumption because after all I don’t know you but I’m surprised my guess was right 😊
        This is my problem with Leo, they seem super normal and super clear before they start showing the other side πŸ™„ if weird all the way, you get prepared, but a switch is always harder…if you know what I mean and not meant as an offense here πŸ™‚
        🐝 🐝 let’s hope it will be only honey 🍯 πŸ€“
        Have a great time πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

      • Haha! Your Guess was spot on!😎😎
        Hahhaha! I know exactly what you mean! Leos are very very moody! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
        Astonishingly, I know some Leos who are more leo than me🀣
        No offence taken 😊
        Haha! I guess I have finally started to get some honey πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
        You too, have a lovely time πŸ’•

      • you are an awful Leo that’s for sure 😎 you are more than enough, doesn’t have to be more Leo than you at all, you have a black belt and doctoral degree that’s for sure 😎 at least you’re getting honey so something good at the end πŸ™‚

      • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ A doctoral degree in Leo! Sounds like a torture on the people around 🀣
        I guess! I am getting better πŸ™‚

  10. That commercial!!! Heart strings tugging…crying into my morning coffee…kindness wins in the end, right? I believe it does. We have to be kind to each other and ourselves to survive on this planet…another point that I like to surround myself with givers and not takers.
    Great post, Huguette! Hope you are having a wonderful afternoon! &*&

    • Yes isn’t it ? 😟😟 I immediately thought about it when writing the post , I watched it like thousand times
      Kindness doesn’t always win here in this world but at the very end, yes probably and anyway « what goes around comes aroundΒ Β» always! People don’t forget how you make them feel ever, I certainly don’t, good or bad, I don’t
      Sometimes we’re the only givers and nothing else to be done about that , unfortunately
      Thank you dear Elizabeth for reading and for your kind comment πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ‘πŸ‘

  11. Hi. Congratulations for this award. I like the idea. And I love the video. To be honest, I almost cried. I never saw kindness like this and I don’t know if I could ever be like him. The man is great. Money can’t buy his satisfaction that he made people smile. I am a little like how you were before. I understand all the time that people use and take advantage of me for their works but I help them anyway. It’s one of my weaknesses to not be able to say no. But I also like to help people.
    Kindness is the best anyone could offer to someone else, even strangers, without expectations. I believe in karma so I think it will always come around. Thanks for sharing the video πŸ™‚

    • Thank you dear Ramyani for reading and for your lovely interaction πŸ™‚ Yes this video is actually amazing and I couldn’t but think of it while preparing this award…And you don’t need to be like him, there are million other ways actually so don’t limit yourself
      What goes around comes around, it’s very true! Have a great day πŸ™‚ ❀

  12. Small acts of kindness can change someone’s life.
    That video is amazing.
    There is so much of everything, except kindness..Well saidπŸ‘
    Hope I can be kind to people around me.

  13. It’s a well-deserved award Hug!
    Since I already commented on the kindness post. Let me just take my time here and cry with that man. Sniff. SO touching. The ending kind of annoyed me though. I wish it was just a story and not a commercial. But I’m so happy he adopted the dog (or is the other way around?) Felt tears in my eyes when he smiled for the young girl, ugh, seriously emotional. 😭
    And since I’m wondering if you think I think I deserve it, this time I made sure to scan the nominated names and yay! ❀ Thank you πŸ’ƒ

    • hahahha Thank you Jess πŸ˜„ This video is so moving, even if commercial it’s very well done! and I’m sure there are people like him out there, but they give silently and away from social media and cameras…
      You saw your name yayyyy πŸ˜„ it’s my pleasure and don’t worry if you’re tight with time, you can always change your mind ❀

      • Yes, there are so many like him who doesn’t care about bragging it for the world to see. And I think that they’re the one who deserve most recognition.
        Nah, I like the award, just kind of digging in my brain on what post to attach that will match it πŸ™‚

      • these people believe in kindness regardless the recognition
        i attached a post because I don’t want tell a story about something kind I did or something else did, you can just tell a short story that’s it

      • Oh that’s a relief! Because seriously, I’m a bad judge of myself. I asked my husband and gives me a list which will make me sound like an arrogant narcissist if I wrote them down myself.

  14. People, who go through life with the β€œit’s nice to be nice” philosophy, are the type of people it is good to be around.

    I think the best part of being involved in the blogging world, is all the good people I have come across who are full of kindness.

    • Thank you Ronnie for stopping by, kindness is such a great quality and I second you regarding blogging world, it’s the best part indeed πŸ™‚

  15. Beautiful article. Wayne Dyer once said β€œin order to forgive, you once, must have blamed.” Kindness comes fro within, and is nurtured through the act of forgiveness of self and others. Thank you for this reminder!

  16. Oh my heart. Thanks for touching my day with your lovely heart. Kindness definitely speaks volumes. Just as your posts continue to speak to my heart. Thanks so much Huguette! ❀️
