It’s true, it really is. It’s like the idea of “Paying it Forward,” when you experience another’s kindness and it encourages you to grace another with that same Kindness. A domino effect that’s inspiring to see and can have a deep impact on those affected. I’ve personally seen it work in the Starbucks Drive through line, when someone picks up the tab for the person behind them and so on and so on, and it doesn’t stop for hours. It’s doesn’t need to be much. An act as small as buying coffee for someone can snowball into a phenomenal movement
Kindness is defined as: the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. November 13th is the perfect day to talk about kindness as we celebrate WORLD KINDNESS DAY. It’s the day we celebrate our LOVE for Humanity. A day recognizing the hardships we all endure, and we sacrifice something to make it a little bit better for someone else, or for many. Kindness isn’t just about being “Nice” or “Good”, but generating action and intent based on empathizing with others, and a genuine concern for their well-being. It comes in many forms that we’ll discuss in a moment.
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. “
“Together we can change the world, just one random act of kindness at a time.”
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”
