This quote has always resonated with me. It’s a philosophy that I feel deeply, and one that I try to live everyday. I know I don’t achieve it all the time, but it is always my goal. Imagine what the world would be like if everyone tried to be kind, all the time, to everyone else. To listen. To empathize. I think the world would look very different.
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about kindness, and what that means. And really, isn’t it anything, even the smallest thing, that changes the moment, or our day, or even our way of thinking? We all know what it’s like when someone does something unexpectedly kind – how touching and wonderful that feels. It has the power to turn around our whole day. What would it be like if we could all do those things, all the time? I would argue that the world would feel very different.
