:: A little kindness goes a long way ::




"Be nice to everyone. You never know when your paths will cross again."  
~ Sarah Warren ~

Isn't it sad how many folks don't understand this very basic truth?  It's sad, really, because life would be a lot less stressful for all of us, if people simply tried harder to be kind. To me, kindness should be an understanding of one another, so that at any given time, on any given day we understand that we could be that person who could use a little kindness-we could lose someone we love, or a job, feel hurt, or very sad, or just be on the short end of the stick... but regardless, kindness is simple. It's the human connection at it's deepest level of understanding.

It could mean many different things. Sweet words in the time of sadness, simply holding the door for a stranger and not expecting a thank you, talking to a complete stranger who feels the need to unburden themselves to a stranger, letting go of someone you love for the sake of their happiness...

Just to make it as simple as possible, kindness is really nothing more than following the golden rule. "Treat others the way you would wish to be treated". It doesn't get much easier folks.

Then there's me. I like doing things when no one is looking. Sometimes people figure it out, most of the time they don't - which is how I would like to keep it.  But, me being me, of course would like to know...

What does kindness mean to you?
