One of the simplest gifts we can give to others is the gift of kindness. 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 someone 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 mean, 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.
