How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment. We can start now, start slowly, changing the world. How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make a contribution toward introducing justice straightaway. And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness! ~Anne Frank
This is “the kid”. She loves animals, and they love her. She loves people, and she’s not afraid to show it. She has such a big heart. Because of her, I want to be a better person. Because of her, I learn more about compassion each day.
Today’s exercise – be compassionate at home. I will watch what I say and how I say it. I have to confess, this will be really tough. It’s true when they say you are meaner to those closest to you. Why are we nicer to strangers? Ok, wish me luck!
