It sounds so simple to offer kindness but when it counts do we?
As I pondered on offering kindness, I thought, after the simple stuff how can I offer kindness?
- Hold a door open for someone.
- Give a complement. BUT be true. Do not tell someone who looks like an obvious mess (at that moment), “you look beautiful”. Instead, “It’s great seeing you today”.
- Pay it forward.
- I like to “tithe” to others by giving a generous tip.
- Just don’t. …. Sometimes just don’t say what is on your mind. Sometimes either just don’t open our mouth. Or find something to say that is kind.
