Day 11:Kindness

If I could change one thing about people as a whole it would be our lack of kindness.Kindness has seemed to disappear more and more these days.I try to be kind to everyone I come in contact with.Be it opening and holding a door for someone,helping them load the bags into their car or just giving someone a smile.I mean what is the big deal about being kind to people?I understand if someone has had a bad day or if they just are in a bad mood but really that is not an excuse to be unkind to people who don't even know you.It is not their fault.

I teach my children the importance of kindness.That even if you don't want to(who doesn't want to???) you be kind to people.Ones you know and the ones you don't.Being kind should just come natural to people.This really should not be an issue.I mean really??

What do you think??Do you think kindness is disappearing from the world?

Hugs and Love,
Brandi

  1. I do. But I like it's more people are becoming lazy and self-centered. It's all about them, and they don't care about others. I know I've had my very few moments of being unkind to strangers, but we are all human. I do try my best not to take a bad day out on someone else, unless it's my husband. ;) jk.

  2. No, I don't. A kind act is subjective. What may be kind to one person may not be seen as kind to another. It's all about perspective. I think the biggest problem in our world is, even though we seem to be expanding our horizons and becoming more culturally aware-- we are, in fact, narrowing our field of vision and becoming more narrow-minded. Again, it's all about perspective.
