It cost no money to be kind, and it takes no talent, in fact, all you have to possess to practice kindness is a willing heart to undertake the action and be kind. There is probably not a better method for improving a person’s outlook on life than to treat them with a little kindness. All people deserve your kindness, and like most things in life, the more willingly this gift is given the more it is received. Be a giver of kindness today.

Kindness is Contagious

One of the great things to see is that one act of kindness provides a happiness that will be shared with kindness is contagioussomeone else, one way or another. You can’t help it when someone is kind to you, there is a feeling of warmth inside that you want to share with someone else. And most people do.  There are people who practice random acts of kindness and bring a light to the world. There are also people who are just kind to others all of the time. It must be a wonderful way to live.

We can only be responsible for our behavior and choices and the example we set for other people to follow. Take control of your actions today and implement kindness into each interaction that comes your way. You will be amazed at how much difference it will make in your life and of course the lives of others that you come in contact with during the day.

Kindness Defeats Mean

It is important to practice kindness with those who are unkind. They absolutely need it most. To be moving through your life and to consciously be unkind to others, a person must have experienced some awful things. Kindness can break through the darkness, and bring light into those spaces where kindness countsmean, desperation once resided.

A mean person who does not practice kindness has probably forgotten how it feels when someone takes the time to be kind to them. Once they experience that there is a chance that they will develop a more positive outlook and perhaps practice  kindness toward others. Again it is important to stress that you can only be responsible for your actions. Others are responsible for theirs, if they choose to be mean, hateful, spiteful and unhappy, that is their choice. Your choice is to not treat them like their condition is permanent. Kill ’em with kindness, that is all you can do.

  1. sniff..lovely song. I’ve been thinking about kindness. sometimes you can be so kind you lose yourself and the people around you use you as a doormat. Which is the extreme of being kind. It is also necessary to be kind to the people who see you most often. I found myself, last night, speaking in a mean fashion to my son. I felt horrid! To be tough and kind is also hard. this is a good share–thank you for being kind to your readers!

    1. Thank you Kris! I don’t think any of us can be perfect all the time. There are moments we are less than kind, it happens. The key I think is to become conscious of your behavior and you will find yourself being more accepting I think. I have moments continually throughout the day where I have to catch my behavior and need to change it. We are all human, just trying to be the best we possibly can. 🙂
