Kindness is something that seems to be fleeting in today’s crazy world. With all the recent events across our nation and the rest of the world it makes one want to dig a moat and live off the land as a hermit. And yes that has crossed my mind because on my 11 acres I really could live off it well! We are imploding on ourselves but does anyone even see that we are? From politicians to media to colleagues to neighbors we all see differently and we all have different beliefs but do we all need to be cruel to each other? Do we even realize we are being cruel or is it so easy to be blind to everyone else these days we except the fact we are no longer kind to each other?
I challenge everyone to find kindness in yourself and to overlook the bad. Overlook that your co-worker ate your sandwich, overlook that your neighbor parked on your lawn by a foot again, overlook that your mailman never closes your mailbox and your mail yet again got wet but it only got wet because the meteorologist once again called for sunny skies yet a thunderstorm came through. You don’t know what that person is going through; they really could be having a worse day, week or year than you. If they aren’t and they really are just being a jerk well maybe that is because no one has taken the time to be kind to them. Maybe a simple smile, a simple hey how’s it going or a simple act of bringing 2 sandwiches instead of 1 could change that grumpy jerk to someone better.
Really do take time and smell the roses and don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t stoop to someone else’s level because then you have to live with your actions. Oh also Karma really can be a bitch. No matter your beliefs, no matter your point of views, no matter what happens, tomorrow starts a new day and a new perspective.
Plus being kind really does make you feel better deep down and that translates to a healthier you!
