“We carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness.” – Wonder
Does being kind to others need further explanation? I don’t think so.
Everyone needs to be shown kindness, cause frankly, sometimes it feels that there’s more hurriedness, meanness, and me-ness than there is kindness in our world.
You can be that change.
Here are some ways to be kind:
Call someone (better)
Meet someone (best)
Write love letters to strangers
Hold the door open for someone
Keep the public toilet clean
Put away your phone when you are with someone (it’s a no-brainer way to make people feel that they matter in this digitalised world)
Think of yourself less
Genuinely compliment someone
Listen when someone is talking
Clear your tray after your meal
(and now imagine these being done to you, feels good eh?)
You’ll never know how far kindness can travel.
Visualise the kindness you gave to another person boomerang-ring around the world.
