This Week’s Lesson
It costs me nothing to be kind to someone who is unkind… but may be their most precious gift.
-Caryn R’s life lesson from of Marion, Iowa
It is often said that “kindness kills.” While I don’t think it’s that drastic, kindness can and does move mountains. Sometimes it is really hard to be kind to someone who is or has been unkind to you. But in life, it’s rarely about “you.”
When someone wins an award, most often, the winner thanks their family and friends for their support – for without them, winning the award wouldn’t have been possible. That’s what is when you offer kindness to a friend, a colleague, or a stranger. You are offering your shoulders for them to stand on.
Try to make it a point over the next week to be kind to someone around you. If you think it’s going to be a challenge, be kind to just one person. If you’re daring, try to be kind to a stranger too! If you want the triple-dog-dare challenge, be kind to everyone! Kindness kills, or maybe kindness spreads happiness. You choose!
