I enjoy the small gestures, just helping people and acknowledging them. I live is an Asian neighborhood in SF and people help each other all the time, lots of honor and respect going around. If it becomes the norm people step up.

Driving is another chance to pass on goodwill. When someone, especially a kid or an elderly person is walking a crosswalk while I am waiting in my car I try to nod, let them know i see them and give them an extra second before I move forward. Or if I enter an intersection at the same time as someone else, I'll let them go first, point and smile. In my world view we're all in it together and the kicker is the it feels very good to work with others instead of treating situations like it's all about me.

Yes, I am and proud of it. Unfortunately there are more users out there than kind folk. Be careful with your kindness because there is always someone laying in wait to take you for what they can by virtue of your kind nature.

I developed that trait by being a deadhead. "Are you kind?" has always been at the forefront of what it meant to be a deadhead.

I inherited that trait from my dad and my maternal grandmother. They were the kindest people on earth and would do anything for anybody whether they asked for help or not. They could eyeball a situation and step in to do the right thing instinctively. I have a truck load of memories of them helping others their whole life long.
