Have you been kind today?

This post saddens me somewhat. Several times in the last few days, I've seen tears from very simple acts of kindness. I sensed that someone was having a bad day and offered them a free cup of coffee to clear their head...I saw tears. A sweet child was short a quarter so I happened to find a quarter for him to complete his purchase...the mother had tears. A warm hug of compassion for someone that just lost his wife...more tears. These are just a few examples, but what has our world come to when acts of kindness are not the norm? These are simple things that we should not even think twice about. Every chance we get, we should be watching out for our friends, neighbors and strangers as well, and take notice if they maybe need a pick me up. People should not be surprised by kindness, it should be expected in our society.

Being kind not only has a direct effect on others, but it has a positive impact on yourself as well. Everybody can use a little bit of kindness in their life. Of course, being kind is pretty self-explanatory, but there are a variety of ways that you can express it. Whether it is opening a door for someone, delivering a bouquet of flowers, making eye contact with people and offering a smile so they know they are not alone, kindness can have a greater impact than you think. It is one of the greatest attributes that someone can have, and also one that is visible without ever saying a word. Smiles and a listening ear are always free...try it. Make sure you practice some form of kindness EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Being kind goes a long way. Have you been kind today?

These are some of my favorite quotes: Enjoy!
