The Way We Feel
"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
--Maya Angelou,American writer
Maybe the news is worse today than in years past, but every where there seems to be this incredible amount of need and sadness in the world. What kindness can you show that will make the world a better place? Remember there probably will not any music playing in the background when you show someone a kind act, there may not be anyone that will ever know except you and that other person, kindness comes from within our hearts. When kindness resonates within us, it makes other feel the need to do something in kind.
I read about a small act of kindness that continued for days recently at a drive-thru coffee shop of all places. Somebody in the drive-thru line bought the person behind them a cup of coffee which continued for over 500 cars before the chain was broken. What's important here is not only the initial act, but the continuation by others to participate in the thread of kindness and not break the chain.
The world needs more kindness chains.
