Don’t choose who to be kind to, be kind to everyone. Don’t decide when to be kind, be kind at all times. Don’t worry about how small it may seem, to someone it makes a big difference. Don’t limit yourself to the easy acts, kindness is supposed to be selfless. ~Christine Sternfels
When I started this series, I thought “Piece of cake! I can do random acts of kindness with my eyes closed.” It was ok at first because I was doing things I wanted to do, when I wanted. The more I got into it, the harder it got because I could not come up with things that fit my schedule. I wasn’t trying to change the world, but why was I looking for grander gestures to make a difference? I learned it had to start with small acts, at any given time, anywhere and with anyone.
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” ~Mother Teresa
I hope this series’ posts have somehow inspired you to do something kind by nature and frequently. Have a great weekend everyone!
