The art of kindness…

 “Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.” – Seneca


Good morning! Think about your last several days. Try to envision the faces of people that you saw, try to remember what they were saying, or what their facial expressions revealed about how they were feeling. Can you remember any vividly? Think not only of your immediate family and friends, but strangers that you encountered while shopping, or walking, or doing errands.

Can you remember how you felt as you saw each of those people? Were you intimidated? Did you have a hard time recalling faces of strangers because you were focused on something else? Were you judgmental of some of those you saw?

Imagine if we greeted each person we saw with the wisdom Seneca brings in this quote. Each time we encounter another being, we have an opportunity to share kindness.

Your Turn: Be aware of those you encounter today. Try to bring kindness or a smile to each person. Watch how sharing your own light, warms your spirit and heart as well.

 Today’s Affirmation: I greet each person with kindness and compassion.

  1. This is so what I needed today. Someone I work with for my life, has told me to do an act of kindness everyday.

    This so fits in!

  2. I love this good morning quote, I always think kindness is a great way to approach the day but I have a question if anyone could help. Everyday I drive my boss’s car down to the local shops and there is the same boy on the same corner washing windows. I feel bad for him and give him money but my boss has told me to never let him do it. Is there anyway to handle this situation without feeling guity.
