World Kindness Day!
My name is BayMaxx, I am a 3-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the unofficial mascot and office pup for Next Level Plumbing! My humans are Mollie, who runs the office, answers the phone, and books calls; and Byron who is the owner of Next Level Plumbing and a master plumber! They decided early in the blogging that it would be fun for me to share my thoughts and voice with you all! So that’s what I’m doing today!
Today is World Kindness Day, but I do not think many people know that! It is internationally observed, but you may not know about these special days if you do not use a National Day Calendar! On this day everyone is encouraged to share kindness, even if you don’t feel much like you want to! Have you ever noticed how kindness is infectious?? Or how animals can often recognize whether someone is a kind person? Most animals are a good judge of character! I always try to see the best in everyone, and by showing kindness to others, I often receive twice as much back in return!
Acts of kindness can be big or small, and sometimes the small, unexpected ones are the best! I LOVE an unexpected treat from my humans, and have seen them show kindness to each other in thoughtful little ways many times over the years! When was the last time you showed a little unexpected kindness or appreciation for loved one or friend???
If you are looking for some ideas on how to show kindness to others on this special day, check out the “Random Acts of Kindness” website to get inspired and help kindness become the norm! It’s a great reality check for our very often introspective lifestyles and self-centered mindsets! Choose to step outside your bubble and share a bit of kindness today! You may be surprised to find kindness being returned where you least expect it!
Don’t forget to be kind to the people working to make your life better everyday as well! Whether it’s a salesperson, a waiter, or a technician, try to show them the kindness you would hope to receive! I know Byron, and all of us at NLP, appreciate and remember kindness shown to us!
As always, don’t hesitate to give us a call or text at 941-504-3578! Whether it’s a last minute problem, or something you want to schedule to be done later in the year, we’ll be more than happy to help you with any plumbing issues you may have!
