In the midst of living your life, be KIND.
If you are successful, be kind and show others the way.
If there is joy, lift others up and be kind.
If there is a setback, be kind. This moment shall pass.
If there is anger, be kind and speak when your mind has calmed down.
If there is sadness, be kind and gentle with yourself.
Kindness is love. Love does not always have to feel ‘good.’ Love knows that no matter what life presents us with, we have freedom to choose words and actions that do not contribute to the suffering of ourselves and others.
Kindness is a strength, not a weakness as the poet Kahlil Gibran wisely sums up:
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Kahlil Gibran
