Kindness is a simple choice

“Kindness is contagious. It’s an antacid for living in a toxic world.” — M. Bechtle

The power of kindness is great. Of course, it’s tough to be kind when we live in a hectic world filled with injustices and violence. But we need to remember how kindness works. It is an antidote to the negative. It’s about treating other human beings well. It’s about acknowledging that we are all human and have a basic need to be loved and cared for.

As you go about your day today, notice times where you have an opportunity to be kind. You always have a choice. Try being kind and see what happens. Practicing kindness doesn’t need to be complicated. It can be as simple as considering that the driver who cut you off may be having a bad day rather than cursing about how stupid they are. So give it a try, and notice what happens.
