Happy Friday! How will you make the world a better place today and this weekend? You have the power to make a drastic difference in the lives of others and increase your happiness all at the same time! How? You can dramatically change the world around you by practicing a little Kindness! It is simple, easy to do, costs you nothing and is one of the most underrated agents in human change.
Each of you receives promptings, probably many times during a day, to give a compliment, say a kind word to someone, smile, do a kind deed, open a door for someone, etc. When you receive this kind of nudge from your inner voice, what do you do? Do you follow through or do you think, “I am sure that is not needed; or they seem fine, or I don’t want to bother them…” Remember – you never know what someone is going through or what they need. The simple act of caring and kindness you can display may be just what they need to “get them through” whatever their circumstances are at that moment. There is a quote that comes to my mind as it relates to this which is, “Be Kind For Everyone is Fighting a Hard Battle”! You may never know the impact that your kindness has, so bestow it on others. We are in this world together and we are all striving for meaning, connection and support from others. Be that light that shines for someone else. Human…Kind…Be Both!
Now, more than ever, it seems that there is so much insensitivity in our world. Please listen to the nudge from your inner voice when you are encouraged to bestow kindness on someone; follow through on the prompting. Your words and deeds have power and healing. Your words and deeds may be just what is needed to lift someone up. Kindness is a simple concept, but so very impactful.
Think about the impact kindness has on your life. How does it make you feel? Does it transform your outlook on the day? I bet it does. So, why not bestow that same energy and experience to someone else? Every act of kindness creates a ripple effect that spreads from person to person with no end in sight. How cool is that?
Kindness is contagious. Spread a bunch of it around today and everyday. Maya Angelou said, “People may forget what you did; people may forget what you said; but they will never forget how you made them feel!”
Have a GREAT day; Have a GREAT weekend!
