    Always Demonstrate Kindness

    I think it is everyones natureis to act in kindness.  You're probably thinking, "Then why are so many people so rude?"  It's because they are out of balance with their own true nature, and are therefore not happy with their own inner being.  They think...

    I believe in respecting others

    and showing them kindness; of being tolerant and accepting no matter what. I don't agree with words such as "*****" or "****" which are only used with a negative connotation. Speaking only negative thoughts does nothing for the world. Sometimes, in the world we've grown up in...

    Be whoever you want to be. Take your experiences and either be good. Wise. Nice. Horrible. Bitchy. Angry. Whatever you like. But remember this. Kindness transcends everything! If you are 80 and there's a young mum upstairs. Take her a cup of tea. Possible she doesn't get time to...

    Wamrness Is Poetry

    Let kindness speak louder. It has the gift to arrive without scaring off the birds, keeping the melody of the breeze. .  When the kindness talks, anger will shut up, startled. Normally no one fails to surrender to the voice of the kindness. But to be kind first of all, we must...

    I Truly Value Kindness - Above All Else.

    I believe kindness is one of the most fundamental bases of our soul. And in being kind, we are being true to who we really are. In that sense, everybody wins. Especially kindness in thought. Because I believe any true actions, begin in thoughts - as well as your heart - it shows...

    I believe kindness is a must. At work, at home , during any kind of social  situation. I mean why be grumpy , it’s so much easier to be kind. I want to be treated in a kind way myself so I try to extend that courtesy to others…even at times when they don’t deserve it! LOL...

    There's a science behind kindness,

    I had an epiphany about this once, something so sudden that the next day the inspiration it bought was gone and so was the memory jumbled and interspersed.

    To thine own self be true.

    Kindness begins within first, we can be kind on the outside to others - that's the easy part. Taking care of ourselves inside and out is the challenge. May you meet with this challenge first hand, and may you succeed with rapid and frequent success.

    Kindness

    Don't mistake kindness for weakness. True kindness comes from great strength and well being. It comes from being secure enough to reach out to another.   When we choose kindness we build our self up first in the act. It then builds up people around us. That works...

    Morning Begins...

    With kindness morning begins. Yes, there is no reason not to have a smile or a kind word during the day at any situation. We all are not perfect, and we all are in a mood sometimes. But as the day begins with a sunrise, even on a rainy day, we all are able for having a smile to...
