Kindness matters

Kindness matters

“You may not always see the results of your kindness, but every bit of positive energy you contribute to the world makes it a better place for all of us.” ~Lisa Currie

The acts of kindness we do often feel like such small drops in the ocean of this world’s pain and hard places, but whether we see any impact or not, those small kindnesses make a much bigger difference than we think.

You could be that thread

You could be that thread

So many people are hanging on by the thinnest of threads. Treat all people well. You could be that thread.” ~John Pavlovitz

Kindness costs us so little, and it may mean everything to those we offer it to. Even when we must set limits or draw boundaries, it’s still possible to do so with kindness because we never know how thin a thread another may holding on by.

Choose to soften

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.” ~Pema Chödrön (from The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times)

Which will you choose? I hope you’ll choose to let life soften you. Not only does the world needs more kindness and openness, but you’ll also find greater happiness that way.
