Thinking about kindness….

Participating in this challenge has made me more aware and witness the kind gestures my fellow human beings show all around me. And at the end of the day, I realise that kindness is, after all, a choice that we make & a matter of the heart; whether we want to be kind or not reflects the person we are. Β Sadly, even when kindness is free, within our control and makes us feel great too, but even then some of us cannot be kind enough. :/

A few of my reflections during the challenge –

  • By focussing on two small things – being thankful for what I have and doing things that I enjoy, I have experienced a contentment & self-satisfaction and I am trying my best to keep this focus intact. After all, being kind to self is important too! πŸ™‚
  • Taking moments out to enjoy little things in my life and observing kindness around me definitely made my days happier & positive too. And hence, kindness should come much more naturally to all of us! πŸ™‚
  • Kindness is a gesture to show that someone cares. Like Plato said, β€œBe kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle”.
  • Small but significant acts of kindness do make a difference in the life of the receiver. When others are kind to us, we feel obliged/ encouraged/ motivated to do the same for others. I hope people keep on spread love & kindness around them and make this world a better place to live in, for all of us…..after all love is all we need. ❀

  1. Thank you for sharing those lovely observations! I’m so glad that you’ve gotten so much out of this week’s focus! It’s funny how #1 is so simple yet profound πŸ™‚ I love the quote you used πŸ™‚

  2. I think you are spot on. When people show kindness to others, it tends to make them kinder to those around them. Each act of kindness, no matter how small, creates a ripple effect.

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
