I’ve been thinking a lot lately about kindness.
It’s easy to be kind to people you love and care about and easy to be kind in the philanthropic sense — you give your time or money to a worthy person or organization, then you return to the comfort of your own life.
It’s harder to be kind to people you don’t like or disagree with and harder still to be kind on those occasions when you must do what feels unkind — as when someone is hurting themselves or others and you have to speak up about it — to prevent even more unkindness.
Then there are the people who are either naturally kind or work hard at it and generally succeed. We all know someone like that — there isn’t a mean bone in their bodies.
Kind people often get taken advantage of because they always see the best in everyone. But where would we be without them? They also often get taken for granted and don’t get thanked enough for being an example for the rest of us to follow.
So take a moment today to thank someone who has been kind to you. It’s a good way to practice kindness yourself.
