Kindness is spreading sunshine into people’s lives regardless of the weather.

If you can be anything, be kind.

When we do kindness with anyone it gives us peace.  Its a simple concept that can make the world a peaceful place.  It has the power to improve our own well being as well as that of our family friends, acquaintances, and strangers . If we do only one kindness our brains will learn a new skill dailly, even though its tiny, its so important for our peace and  and how we spend our life, we can start from home, then it spreads.

No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.  Kindness is a quality that help you fight your battles, accomplish your goals, and feel better about yourself.  

Being kind doesn’t mean that you have to give in to everything or let people take advantage of you.  You can still say no, set boundaries and have differing options while being kind.  There are ways to make a point or disagree with someone nicely.

By being kind even in disagreeable moments, you will be heard more clearly.  This means what you are saying will be more likely be heard and caonsidered fairly.  Plus it is believed that being kind can slow the aging process too!

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.

Amelia Earhart

Be patient on the days you don’t feel like it.  Being kind will help.  It isn’t enough to be kind when you feel like it or when it will benefit you . 

Even if your kindness is getting you nowhere, keep doing it.  You have to be patient and push through feelings that your kindness doesn’t matter, because it always matters. Even if it doesn’t seem it’s helping anyone else, it will make you feel better

Remember kindness always comes first. The things you say and do would mean more than if you made people feel bad.  Feeling like affect  people forever and kindness is a huge contributor to feelings.

People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Ahhh lady, you opened with this:

That is the gospel in a few words. It is amazing what a simple approach that is, to be so impossible for many to understand.

While in my youth, I don't recall kindness being especially virtuous. What a waste! Nowadays, it's one of my most-admired traits in other persons. Plus, who doesn't need more 'feel good, anti-aging' emotions in their lives?
