I often write about being kind and what it can mean to others who are having difficulties in their lives. The simple act of smiling at someone can change their “miserable existence” into “Hey! I am someone and I’ll be okay!”
A simple smile…
Let’s take a look at some other conscious thoughts we can think of that will result in you doing/saying someone kind for/to someone.
- When was the last time you held a door for someone whether they needed you to or not?
- When was the last time you said “good morning” to a total stranger?
We are born already capable to give and receive love as witnessed by an infant’s face while interacting with others. What happened to that love? Did somebody take it from us?
Kind people are not fools. They are capable, interesting, often well-read people who have decided to be kind and fall to negative thoughts and allowing others to treat them badly.
Here’s what my days look like:
I consciously smile and acknowledge most every person I pass or encounter in some manner AND I don’t use slang. I say hello – not hey, good morning/day, or I comment on the weather with an interest in another person’s response.
I want you to know that I get mad at people regularly and forgive them right after forgiving myself for the outburst. We are all on our own journey and we are in control of how we will act and react on our journey at any given time of the day.
I’ve given you a lot of questions to answer for yourself today and it is my vision to inspire you to be more kind to yourself first and others day today. So…
Be kind to you today and then be kind to a total stranger who could become a life-long friend as a result.
What does this all have to do with kind people can succeed? People who are kind have good attitudes, are more healthy, happier at work and play, and most of all – they don’t take any grief from others who don’t want them to be happy.
Be kind today. I will be…
