Chapter 7, Page 13,Book 20

Youre never too important to be nice to others

Jon Batiste

July 13th -  It’s nice to be important but more important to be nice.

Constant kindness can accomplish much .  As the sun makes ice melt, kindness cause misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

Albert Scheitzer

Kindness is defined as the quality of being generous helpful, and caring about other people.  Being kind to someone is one of the most important things we can do.  Every time you are kind you are telling others that they are important, that they matter .

There are endless ways to practice kindness and research shows that it will improve you heath and happiness and make other around you happy too.  What we give is what we get.

Our society often places so much emphasis on being important, but at the end of the day people remember you for the way you treat others.  Being nice costs us nothing, it’s a simple choice and what does it say about is if we chose the alternative.  Don’t we want to be remembered for making them feel good? It’s a win win situation because when you are kind to others they will be kind in return.

Kindness not only helps to improve the live of those around us, but it helps improve our lives as well. This world is too often an unkind place but despite what’s happening around us there is always someone who has it worse, so why not try to uplift them, just as you’d want someone to uplift you.

A little smile, a hug, a pat on the back can really make a difference in someones day!  Remember there is always time to be kind.  These many acts of kindness in my life have truly made me a better person. 

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

Have you, too, noticed all the "Be Kind" messages -- on I-65 billboards, t-shirts and even facemasks!
In my (much) younger days I don't think I put much value on kindness. I'll never forget the 'lightbulb' moment when -- reading condolences left on a classmate's obituary -- so many people mentioned Maureen's kindness. Now THAT's a beautiful legacy.
