If I had the chance I would want to earn a living by spreading random acts of kindness all over the country or the world. This is something a few friends of mine and I do at college in a club we started at Wilkes University called ARK (Acts of Random Kindness), and I must say the smile on someone’s face after being delighted by a complete stranger and in a completely unexpected way gives off a feeling that would be payment enough. The money would be a bonus and basically just a means of living. I would probably spend most of it setting up different acts such as handing things out, clean ups, paying for a family’s dinner, etc.
After each act I would hand out stickers that would say “Don’t let the chain of love end with you”. Hopefully, this is how my occupation would impact the world. When one spreads kindness simply to brighten someone else’s day with no intentions of anything in return, the lucky person will be more likely to continue the chain, with the sticker as reinforcement. I on the other hand have a simple passion of helping others, surprising people, and brightening their day.
There are too many different types of people in the world to count, but everyone deserves a surprising and honest smile of pure appreciation once in a while.
