This is one of my favourite Words - and definitely a very important value. I think all mamas hope to instil this in their kids - to encourage them to always be kind, or even

I think it's a Word that doesn't get the recognition it deserves - Can you imagine how the world would change if we truly lived by J.M Barrie and the Dalai Lama's words??
I know it's a cliche, but it's no less true - we need to 'be the change we wish to see in the world'. We need to practise kindness every day, and whenever we are unkind - which we will be sometimes (we are human, after all) - we must apologize and ask for forgiveness.
I'm sure it's no coincidence that the background is the same colour as Honesty and Clarity - two things which can help us be kinder...
I'd love to know what you think when you see this Word
I took part in 40 Acts during Lent - the focus being on generosity, which I think is the sister of Kindness. It was a fascinating experience and made me think harder about how generous (or not) I am - especially to strangers. Although it's finished you can find out more on the site which is still live (http://www.40acts.org.uk/) I am looking forward to getting stuck in again next year, but in the meantime, I hope I have become a little kinder towards folk...ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the link! I remember hearing/seeing about this, but didn't really know what it involved...Delete
I just found this quote on FB - Scatter kindness like confetti - isn't that a wonderful image???
Yes! Honesty, Clarity and Kindness… Would you agree that these three combine into Compassion?ReplyDelete
