A small act of kindness goes a long way. This is a phrase most of us may have heard from time to time. The fact of the matter is, this is completely true. A simple smile to your friends, colleagues and coworkers can make their day. You don’t know how bad someone’s day has been but you know you can make it much better with a simple act of kindness.
