“Kindness, I've discovered, is everything in life.” Isaac Bashevis 7-14-11

“Kindness, I've discovered, is everything in life.” Isaac Bashevis

Discoveries are wonderful because it means that someone has done the work and we reap the benefits of knowledge! Well lets reap the benefit of todays discovery. All of our actions in life would yield rich rewards if we based them all on kindness. If we literally made it our mantra day in and day out we could all live exceptionally better lives. How so? Our lives can get so busy that we focus on what we need to do instead of focusing on HOW we do it. Every day countless tasks add to our every-growing list called life. Now we can do these tasks in two ways- kindly or unkindly. Some wont make a difference whether you are kind or not, like taking our the trash or doing the dishes but some do require that we consider how we do them. Especially the ones that have the involvement of others. This could be coworkers, employees, family and friends. Its really hard not to get along with a genuinely kind person. Here is something to meditate on; the definition of ind:

"Having an affectionate, loving, sympathetic or helpful nature or demeanor." focus on DEVELOPING those qualities and you will become the very epitome of kindness!

The simple message is to be kind not just today but every day. its a gift you can give every day, as often as you wish and its free!

Have a great day and of course, a better tomorrow!
