As you know, tomorrow, (St. Patrick’s Day) is known as the luckiest day of the year. You
may celebrate the occasion with a green ensemble, a corned beef dinner and a lottery ticket, but where does that leave you today and the rest of the year?
Here at Lions Pride, we are firm believers in the power of making your own luck. The theory of Karma is a fundamental belief in Buddhism, and the law of moral causation.
Simply speaking, karma teaches us that we are accountable for our actions, so the trick is always to be looking for ideas to help others. Consider setting a goal to perform a random act of kindness each day to keep paying it forward:
Here are seven ideas to get you started:
- Experience a friendly customer service associate? Be sure to stop and tell their manager.
- Pay it backward by buying coffee for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop.
- Start spring cleanup early by picking up garbage along the highway or in your neighborhood park.
- Compliment the first three people you see today.
- Donate to a cause you care about.
- Leave a generous tip for a kind server. You can bet that will make their day!
- Send ‘Thank You’ cards to your area police officers and firefighters expressing your appreciation for their service.
