Kindness can come in many forms. It can be random acts done anonymously, specific acts done with intention, simple but quiet acts done from the heart, and the list goes on. One of the easiest ways to show kindness is to give of yourself and your time. It’s also one of the most generous acts of kindness you can bestow upon someone, including yourself.
Making time to meet a friend for a simple cup of coffee can be difficult in our hectic and rushed lives, but that’s exactly why it makes such a difference. You get to slow down, have a chance to catch up and reconnect, and let them know you genuinely care. You find out what’s important to them in that moment. You tune everything else out while you share a coffee and a chat. It may be deep and meaningful, it may be light and full of laughter, or it might be shedding a few tears together. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you do it. Not only are you sharing and spreading kindness, you’re also inspiring kindness. You’ve created a ripple that can travel beyond your wildest dreams. One kind act can and does change the world.
So, in keeping with kindness, Suspended Coffees is inviting you to text, tweet, or tag three people and invite them for coffee and a chat. It can be at your local café or online or even over the phone. Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be asking you to come back and share your stories with us and inspire others! When you’ve gone for that coffee, mail us your story, so we can share it with the world.
