We all get so caught up in our own lives. Time always gets away from us, and we hardly have any time for ourselves. But you know what? It only takes a couple of seconds to make someone else’s day.

It feels so good to give back, and I always do on any occasion I can get. I encourage everyone who is reading this post to spread kindness wherever you go. You never know. You just might save someone’s life.
