Kindness

Kindness by Deborah Henry-Pollard on Catching Fireworks blog

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
Albert Schweitzer


I was standing at the bus stop and it started to rain.  Not heavily, but enough to be unpleasant.  I was all dressed up for a business meeting and didn't want to turn up looking damp so was rummaging in my handbag for my umbrella.  Then I noticed that another woman in the queue had moved next to me so that she could share her umbrella with me.

I was given a binding machine so that I could present my reports professionally.  Someone else asked me how I was going to get it home, as it was heavy and bulky.  I was planning on struggling onto the bus with it.  However, as they lived near to me, they would be happy to deliver it if I didn't need it immediately.

I was at a coworking group and had my head down as I had an important document to finish.  As I ploughed through the work, a cup of tea suddenly appeared at my elbow, made unbidden by one of my freelance colleagues.

None of these acts was life changing. 

None of them cost anything much to the doer in time, effort or money. 

But they all made my day and enhanced my experience of life.

Kindness is defined as "the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate".  Surely that is a quality we can all easily attain and share.  And in sharing our kindness with others makes us feel better as well.

And along the way, don't forget to be kind to yourselves.
