Be kind.

I saw a quote on Facebook that said, “Kindness is not an act, it is a way of life.” I loved that. I believe that if you are kind, everything else will fall into place.

When my kids were very small someone asked me what qualities I wanted to see in my children. Without giving it much thought I said, “Kindness.” As luck and life would have it, both of my children embodied kindness.

Think about the world. Think about how we could change the world if people would only shift their thoughts to kindness. We can’t change the world as a whole, but as individuals we can change our world. We can be kindness role models for the people in our life. What do you show your children? Are they seeing you being kind? We can return kind, to humankind.

Like Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” Today, be kind. Reach out to just one person with a kind word. See how that feels in your heart. Be the change.
