Our day-to-day lives are packed with tasks. Our datebooks are filled with obligations. Every piece of paper found lying around seems to be ripe for a to-do list.
Sure, you're in a hurry. You have a lot to do. It's easy to just put your head down and keep on keepin' on.
In your busy life, however, how often do you go out of your way to be kind, especially to a stranger?
Being kind doesn't have to be something big. It can be as simple as holding the door open for someone else. It can be sharing your smile with others as you walk by. It can be allowing someone behind you in the grocery check-out lane to go ahead of you because they have fewer items. It can be a pat on the back that you give your co-worker for a job well done. It can be a high-five you give your child. It can be making yourself totally present to someone who needs a moment of your time.
You may be busy, but you're never too busy to be kind. When you're kind to others, kindness has a lovely way of coming back to you.
Today, this week: Make room each day to be kind. Kindness is always in season. Kindness matters.
