Something has been playing on my mind a bit lately. I wonder if some of us have forgotten how to be kind or have simply lost our manners.
We’re distracted by our mobile phones and forget to say hello to the bus driver. We’re late for a meeting and don’t thank the barista for our coffee. We’re rushing to get home and don’t let another driver go ahead of us.
Everyone knows how warm and fuzzy it feels when someone shows us kindness. We all have it to give and it doesn’t cost a thing. In fact, it feels darn good and it can even be contagious. Share a smile with someone – stranger or friend – and they’ll likely smile back at you.
Respect. Courtesy. Generosity.
Even the smallest act of kindness can make a difference to those we encounter each day. To know that you can make someone else have a great day by simply showing a little humanity, is a truly wonderful thing.
Friends, I’d love to hear how you show kindness to others every day. Share your stories in the comments.
