Never underestimate this truth

“We can never underestimate this truth: No matter who you are, the biggest thing you do in any day is most often going to be a small act of kindness, decency, or love.” ~Cory Booker

Kindness often seems to come a little more easily to us this time of year, but just imagine how it would change the world if everyone of us carried that emphasis on kindness, decency, and love in our actions throughout the whole year in everything we do.

Being kind

“Continue to be who you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.” ~Maya Angelou

It’s easy to allow life’s hard times to warp us into someone mean and hard, but choosing to continue to be ourselves with all of our kindness intact is a powerful way to prioritize healing and to astonish the world around us as we do.

Choosing kindness

Choosing kindness

“The strongest people are the ones who are still kind after the world tore them apart.” ~Raven Emotion (via Tiny Buddha)

Choosing kindness in the wake of life’s pain and destruction is not an easy thing to do. It shows our strength when we choose to spread kindness even after being battered by life rather than spreading bitterness. How often do you allow your own painful experiences to teach you compassion in this way?

Serving the world

“We can be of service by bringing some kindness, care, groundedness, and balance to those around us.” ~Sebene Selassie

In a world so filled with war, pain, and disasters, it’s easy to feel helpless to make any difference at all. I keep reminding myself that any difference I want to make starts right here with how I treat the people around me.
