Feelings aroused by the touch of someone's hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith - all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.
November 20th - I am thankful for the touch of kindness in my life
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
We all tend to flourish when treated with kindness, and this becomes even more true as we age. With less time ahead of us than behind us, the need for a less complicated, kinder life replaces the need for those external signs of success like the big house; the new car, etc. that were so important to us in earlier years.
They that sow kindness gather love
Showing kindness doesn’t cost anything or even take much time. It does not require elaborate preparation. Kindness can be as simple as a warm smile; a touch; or a word of encouragement.
Remember: Being kind to others is a way of being good to yourself.
True Kindness is a kind act done not for looks not for any other reason than the act itself. It brings a renewed faith in human nature, a sense of the sheer goodness which human beings are often capable of, which sometimes might seem difficult to see amidst the chaos and conflict of everyday life.
No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever.
