“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” – Buddha
We all have kindness within us. Sometimes, we forget about it because of what we have experienced or what is happening around us. In some instances, our emotions get the better of us.
This time, we can make a difference by sprinkling kindness into the world. Here’s how:
Be kind to yourself
You can never really be kind to others if you are not kind to yourself first. It would be like giving something from an empty cup. Treat yourself well and don’t drain yourself of kindness. Kindness comes from within, and that is the best way to sprinkle it on others.
Give something to others. Share your blessings without expecting anything in return. Generosity goes a long way most especially when you are lending a hand and sharing your blessings with the ones in need.
Be nice to everyone
Treat everyone well and be fair. Respect the people around you and those whom you would meet. Sometimes, it starts with the simplest act of being nice. This creates a ripple effect, which the world needs more of.
Be positive and spread positivity
Being a positive drop in an ocean of negativity goes a long way. You are setting a good example people could emulate.
You don’t have to do something grand to inspire people or make someone’s day. A smile, a helping hand or encouragement will do. The important thing is that you are not choosing a time and place to be kind and to have a big heart.
Remember, a small act of kindness is more than enough to potentially change a life, to encourage and to change the world. Do not hold back. Be kind and be the one who sprinkles it into the world.
