letting people merge in front of me while driving no matter what - it's a good way to remind myself that life isn't that serious, and a way to show kindness and grace to a stranger
Being "kind of" free means to me having the flexibility to work and play at my own pace, being able to work and not work on things and times I want to, so I can enjoy things I love like popping by my fav cocktail bar on a weekday afternoon, or hopping on a plane any random day to visit mom and drink some cava together in Madrid for the day. All without losing the professional aspect that allows my lifestyle to happen in the first place. Life's good.
Write kind things about friends/coworkers that may be suffering from the layoffs and making those intros for their next gig.
One free way that I am kind is to give a smile.
One way I am kind (for free!) is by making eye contact. In a hurried world where phones and multitasking are the norm...it's easy to forget to look up and direct our attention to the individual. This means putting my phone down and away from my hands when someone is talking to me. It means pausing for a moment when a server or cashier asks me how my day is going. It's made my "thank yous" so much more sincere as well!
Smile, say hello in native language to add a bit of positive social humanity back to the world!
One of my favorite things is complimenting strangers. Who doesn't love an unexpected compliment? I certainly do. It has the power to change your outlook, especially if you're having a tough day.
My mum - offering her legal services to those in need
My dad - says hello to everyone on his walk
Mine - endeavour to say 'have a nice day' to every service staff, customer service caller, delivery driver etc that I come across during the day
saying hi and sharing my food
Great artist feature this time!

I enable other people to be kind.
I run a website that encourages hen parties (bachelorettes) to do volunteering activities. Helping brides who want to give back and don't know where to start, and giving a platform to charities who can benefit from their time, money and good vibes.
Being attentive no matter what the situation. From holding someone the door open, over noticing a specific detail on a person's outfit to noticing and fulfilling a wish of somebody. Regardless its extent, showing attention is my go to way of being kind.
Randomly throwing things to your friends. A dope song. Powerful words from a newsletter. An artful mix. Just slinging links unapologetically, like you're Santa. And of course, not everyone gets the same thing. You've got your 128BPM guys, the ones who appreciate a cocktail recipe; and the [redacted] enjoyers. You don't just "consume" media. It becomes a tool you use, where you whip the algorithms to show you what you love. This is the definition of "Social Media" 🍸
Letting strangers say hi and pet my dog when we're out on a walk. Sometimes he barks or tries to bite them, but he's just so darn cute that they still appreciate the gesture, haha.
