The love in your heart wasn’t put there to stay
Love isn’t love til it’s given away

January 14th -  Loving Kindness

Kindness matters !  Two words, kindness matters, so powerful, so true and yet, so easily forgotten.  Loving Kindness is good for you: it makes you feel happy, less focused on yourself, more connected to others and all of those things are good for your physical and emotional health. 

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

William Arthur Ward

Loving Kindness  has to be some of the most beautiful words in the English language. It sounds beautiful; more importantly it carries some beautiful messages.  Loving kindness is an aspect of the caring feelings we can have in life that includes feelings of goodwill, benevolence, unselfish friendliness, and love

Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.

Barbara de Angelis

If we act in a kind way, it may seem that we are putting someone else’s happiness ahead of ours, but in practice it doesn’t work that way. Being kind invariably feels good, lifts our own spirits, and nourishes us in ways that we don’t always acknowledge. Everyone benefits.

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

At the end of the day, what matters most are the people in our lives. Put them first every single day. Before work. Before the computer. Before your hobbies. Treat them like they are everything to you. Because they are

We need to be the change we want to see.  Love fearlessly and without limits.  No act of love or kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.  The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion, compassion, humor, generosity, and kindness, and using these tools to improve the lives of those around you.  

Smile, and help others smile too.  

 Sure, not every day will be good, but there will always be something good about every day

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
William Shakespeare

Loving kindness indeed are two good words put together. It is easy too to look around and be aware how to help others and be kind to them, especially those in our family that we love.
