the lost art of being kind

I owe a whole lot to my kindness. I don’t have a lot in this world in the form of material things. I’m not a very practical person. But what I need I get from the kindness of others and often enough, it is because I have been kind to them. Newton’s Law: For every action, there is always an equal, opposite reaction. I’m paraphrasing, of course, and badly but the essence of the law is there. What you give out, you receive.

So I saw this on my FB feed and I just knew it was so true.


I’m not a religious person, by any measure of the word. I’ve found myself to be quite introspective and maybe even spiritual. I’ve been religious for a few years when I was younger but it never really worked out for me. It just never worked. It never clicked. I tried but it never did.

That’s why, when I saw this on my FB feed, it hit me really strongly. The lost art of being kind was the first thing that entered my head. I always try my best to be kind and generous when I can be. It has served me well. It’s a creed with which I follow. Always be kind until you can no longer afford to be. But as time has taught me, you can always afford to be kind.

You can always afford to be kind.
