This is Thanksgiving week.  A time to remember to be thankful for all the things in our lives.  Good deeds are actions you take for the betterment of another person or the society as a whole.  When we see the world turning harder and colder to one another be sure to go out and do a good deed today!


So, for a moment, let’s remember how difficult these past few years have been. People cried, got sick, and unfortunately died. Businesses collapsed. And so naturally, anxiety, depression, and mental illness increased. Yet, with all this chaos, people still went out to do good deeds. You don’t always need a lot of money to make someone else very happy. We can spread kindness just by a smile or with a hello.

Perceived as Good

A good deed is an action you can take for the betterment of another person or society as a whole. However, good deeds need to be seen as good by the recipient. Otherwise, they don’t count. So, you might need to do some trial and error while trying your best to put a smile on someone’s face or to  make the world a better place.
