Let’s Try Kindness

It’s been a disappointing day, the events in our country in the past several days have been tragic and stressful.  Changes going on at work have been stressful for many, many people.  Life can be tough sometimes . . . . for all of us.

My question for today is: Can’t we just all be nice?  Can’t we be kind to each other?  Forgive each other?  Speak gently to each other?  Does it make anybody feel better to ‘tattle’ on some little, really insignificant thing that someone else did? Can’t we pick our battles and save the ammunition for something that really matters? Does it make anybody feel better to speak harshly to someone who made a mistake instead of speaking gently to them?

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echo’s are truly endless.” ~ Mother Teresa

“If I choose to bless another person, I will always end up feeling more blessed.” ~ Marianne Williamson

I am making it my goal to bless those around me by using those short, easy to speak kind words and, hopefully, starting a ripple effect that will spread like wildfire.  Will you join me?  What are other ways that we can spread gentleness and kindness to those we come into contact with?
