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?

Find it within

Find it within

“The confidence to prevail over any problem, the strength to overcome adversity and unbounded hope—all reside within you.” ~Daisaku Ikeda

There’s so much more within in us, but we are often so busy looking outside ourselves for what we need that never take time to look within at the riches we already have.

Choosing love anyway

Choosing love anyway

“I admire people who could have turned cold after everything they’ve been through but still chose love anyway. There’s strength in that.” ~Keneilwe D Mhlanga⠀

My natural tendency after being wounded is to shut down my heart and hold everyone at a distance. I admire people who can keep their hearts open and choose love even in the face of having been wounded. That is strength indeed.
