    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 Believe ,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Easier Said Than Done, I'm Afraid

     Kindness is taking a second before opening your mouth.  Kindness is trying to understand in advance, what the other person needs right that moment, not just barging in on them.  Kindness if actually helping and not just saying platidues.  Kindness is what you...

    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.

    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 hope for kindness. It is never wasted,

    and it's the most precious thing we can give. Kindness must be bound with courage though, because it's so much easier to not act than to act. And when we do not act, the moment is lost, and something that could be wonderful is terrible instead.

    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...
