Kindness costs nothing. It doesn’t make your life worse. It doesn’t hurt or offend or ruin anything-
But it makes the world brighter.
There’s so much hate in this world. Terrorism, starvation, a sexist Wotsit in charge of nuclear missiles- yes, there’s dark
But we can make it light.
I wear this wristband. It’s blue and looks like nothing and I couldn’t tell you where it’s from but it’s blue and sweet and has little pink writing and whenever I look down I see ‘Today’s Random Act Of Kindness?’
And we should all have that. A reminder to do a small little something. It’s clinically proven that the one of the most effective forms of conditioning is by making yourself do something once daily basis, it becomes natural, almost necessary, for day to day life.
Look, let’s be real. We all love compliments. The most modest of us less so, but all of us can appreciate a heartfelt compliment or show of interest or something small like, if someone drops something, picking it up. If someone looks down, offer a smile.
Be the person you’d want to know.
Because who would you be hurting? Kindness is free, it’s easy, it should be as natural as breathing
Yet so many of us overlook it and opt for the cheap shot or degrading others, which ultimately degrades ourselves and
Uh I find it so frustrating. Message someone saying they looked nice, or just say hi. Offer to carry someone’s things for them if they’re struggling.
But don’t forget to be kind to yourself.
‘The first rule of kindness is being kind to yourself’
Please, make someone’s world a little brighter,
And it’s allowed to be your own,
Love, Hea xx
