Rekindle kindness

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Dalai Lama

act-of-kindnessEveryday I see and hear people being unkind to others; either in person, within religions, on TV shows, in politics, in the schoolyard or on social media sites.

In modern society it is commonplace for people to act aggressively toward others in shops, on the phone, while driving, in their family life, in the workplace or anywhere in public.

I am grateful that my experience using social media to date has been positive but I feel upset for others whose lives have been negatively affected by cyber-cruelty.

An old saying from my childhood seems appropriate today, “if you haven’t got anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all”. Just think of the millions of people who would be living a happier life today if they were spared the cruelty of unkind words.

Creating a blog has enriched my daily life by encouraging self-expression and creating communication with others.  I eagerly anticipate hearing the comments and opinions of fellow bloggers who show kindness and respect.

The cyber friendships I have made nurture my self-confidence and well-being and I will be forever grateful for this.

A kind comment takes only a few seconds but can make a lasting impact on another person.

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
― Lao Tzu
