The Power of Kindness

 

KindnessEveryone finds kindness acceptable.
And more often than not, it is most welcome when it’s most unexpected.
Kindness is nearly always an action or a word that simply warms your heart and it is always something that shows that somebody was thinking about us – even if we were not thinking about ourselves.

When others show us kindness – we experience it as something that brings joy to our hearts and a smile to our faces

Though kindness can also be a ‘not doing’ something.

Not eating the last treat you know is a favorite of a friend or loved one
Not speaking ill of someone who is not around to answer the challenge
Not speaking harshly to someone – even though their actions or talk are hurtful or stupid.

We are all kind to others in little or large amounts every day.

When we show others kindness – we experience it as something that brings joy to our hearts and a smile to our faces.

Sound familiar?

Yet…

There is one person who will respond more to your kindness than anyone else on the planet.
One person who actually deserves more of your attention and thoughtfulness than you could possibly realize.
And that is the one person you know best in the world.

Because it’s You!

No matter what foolish thing you have said
Or not said when you should
Or stupid thing you have done
Or likewise not done when it would have been good to do so.

Don’t tell yourself off
Don’t dissolve in a pool of guilt and self-pity
Simply do the unexpected and be kind to yourself

You’ll accomplish more through kindness than you will through harsh words or actions

The you can truly let your smile shine on the inside and the outside.
