Sharing requires no sacrifice. In fact, the miracle of sharing can actually deepen the connection we have with ourselves. Chad Brownstein's short film gives us a glimpse of what the world looks and feels like when we step out of our comfort zone and give simple acts of kindness a try. Something as easy as giving up a seat on a crowded bus to an elder or offering to feed a man who appears down on his luck can open the heart and attune us to the abundance around and within us. The stress of the daily grind can be dissolved - if only for a moment - by one simple act of kindness. A thoughtful gesture has the power to transform someone's day for the better, and that someone could be you. So instead of walking by a person in need or getting irritated at the woman holding up the grocery line, breathe and take a moment to see the situation through a different lens, one of compassion, kindness and service. Because we all benefit from the kindness of strangers, one way or another.
