How’s your week going? For the next few weeks, we will be introducing some buzz words. It simply means a word or catch phrase that passes across a positive message.
We will be starting this conversation with the word “Kindness“
The Dictionary defines Kindness as the act of being friendly, generous and considerate. A second definition is a kind act.
I believe kindness means a lot of things, amongst which are mindfulness, compassion, appreciation, thoughtfulness etc. I will define Kindness as doing nice things for people not because they deserve it but because you want to. I believe that if we are not acting in a way that is kind to ourselves, we will not be acting in a way that is kind to others. And the reason is simple, you cannot give what you do not have.
Random acts of Kindness can be shown in many ways. From being there for a sick friend, to helping an elderly person to a seat, helping out with chores at home without being asked, making a helpful introduction, helping out someone who is stranded, Telling someone the truth( Sometimes it’s really hard, but it’s what friends do), help put a smile on a person’s face.
There is a quote I love, Be kind, For everyone you meet is fighting a battle.
Dear One, life will throw a couple of curveballs at you. I wish I could tell you that everything will be rosy and that nothing disappointing or sad will ever happen to you, but that will be a lie. The message today is that regardless of what you might be going through, make a conscious effort in your mind to show some love by random acts of kindness to other people.
Don’t forget, kindness starts with you. And as long as we are being kind to ourselves, we are coming from a place where we can show true kindness to others.
Have a pleasant rest of the week ahead guys.
