During the time I had to write down something kind I did everyday I became more aware of the kindness around me. Many days I thought so much about what I had done that day, that I realized how nice my parents and friends are to me. Although I considered myself a kind person before I started this journal, I was surprised at how hard it was to find a different kind of kind thing to do everyday. I think that by writing down what I'd done, I encouraged myself to do bigger and better things. Because of this project I purposefully try to do more kind things. Eventually, I hope it will become a habit and I will become a better person. Encouraging others to do a "kind thing of the day" is what I do now. In return for all my kind acts I know that I can expect a greater amount of kindness and respect from others.
