As the holiday comes around, it seems that the yuletide season softens people’s hearts and people become friendly and kind. I observed that people tend to say hi and hello more than other times of the year. I’m puzzled by this phenomenon as it does not make any sense to me, akin to being fake or putting on a front. I think people need to be consistent regardless of the time of the year or occasions. Occasions might make the person friendly, but rather what’s inside the person should be the guiding light. As I always mention to my daughters, you need to be consistent no matter what. Who we are is what matters more than the situation that is around us.
To those who read my blog, I challenge you to a kindness challenge. Be kind each day no matter that situation and circumstances. For you’ll never know how your kindness will affect other people. More importantly you don’t know the lasting impact of your kindness and how it can change someone’s life. This world can be mean and cruel when people don’t care about others. Do we need to throw our weight around? I don’t think it does anyone any good. Kindness is the currency that can make this place a better place.
Share your kindness and let someone know you care. It does not cost anything; in fact being kind does not cost you anything. I urge everyone to challenge two of their friends and let’s spread kindness.
