Three Reasons Why Kindness Rocks!!

I received this missive in my inbox today and I thought it was a great message to pass on to you, my magical friends….

There is no greater weapon, than kindness. A smile, a compliment, encouragement, and compassion belong in the arsenal of every Time-Space Adventurer. Today, may you crush, kill and destroy the fears you encounter, in others and in yourself. — tut.com

Well, that was a great way to start the day! And it got me thinking more about Kindness. Sometimes the most powerful things in life are the simplest.

So, here are 3 thoughts about Kindness that I’ve discovered...

Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid

1. It’s actually Just as easy to be kind as is it is to be unkind. Actually it’s easier. When we respond with kindness – it creates a positive vibration for both ourselves and the receiver! I completely understand those moments when our feelings are raging and kindness towards another seems like an impossibility. That’s when I call upon my friend grace. I like to think of her as Kindness’s first cousin :) Just because another person might act rude or insensitive doesn’t mean that you have to as well! Sometimes it can be super powerful when we don’t respond to malice with more malice. Why? It allows us to step away from the drama and keep our own peace of mind intact. And it protects us from absorbing their negativity. Just because someone else is acting out, it doesn’t mean you have to ‘drink the Kool-Aid’.

Random Acts of Kindness & Fairy Dust

2. These are super magical. Sometimes the little things we can do for another person can really make a huge difference. No act of Kindness is too small! A smile or simple words of encouragement can have the power to change another persons day or life. Genuine compassion and Caring are magic – think of ‘em like fairy dust :)

Be Kind to Thyself!

3. As we go thru our lives sometimes it becomes easy to forget that we also need to be KIND to OURSELVES! Oftentimes, we cut ourselves down with negative self talk, or don’t take the time we need for self-care. Never speak to yourself in a way that you wouldn’t talk to your best friend - or treat yourself in a way that you would never accept from someone else. Don’t reserve your Kindness Awareness only for others. Share that sense of compassion and love for yourself too!

Kindness Rocks! So Rock on with your amazing self! Have a beautiful day.

Love, Gratitude and Blessings to you,
