Kindness Makes ,the World Takes ! Why Should We Be Kind ? MKE Wk#16

What is kindness anyway ? Why should we be kind? This week our virtue to observe kindness in others and to perform acts of kindness has been an amazing experience of happiness and positive thoughts . To be kind is to show benevolence, or have a pleasant demeanor. It also can reflect understanding , tolerance, being helpful or humane or to show affection (love). Kindness can be a brand and the name of a candy bar. There are random acts of kindness that we can do on a daily basis. Any act of kindness has value no matter how big or small. It does not require any special planning or cost but certainly helps spread love and peace in the world . It starts with one person and can grow to magnificent proportions !

There are so many examples of kind acts : holding the door open for someone, buying someone a cup of coffee, giving up your place in line or a giving up a parking space to someone else , donating clothing or food for someone in need , random hugs and smiles, saying thank you to people at work or school, complimenting an officer or janitor, saying you are sorry or forgiving someone , doing a chore to make someone else’s life or job easier, being attentive to someone in need, encouraging and supporting a person’s thoughts or feelings, complimenting someone about something they did or said, and demonstrating polite behavior toward a stranger. What is the result of these acts?

Kindness is contagious, as what you do comes back to you. It gives pleasant feelings of love , brings happiness to someone sad and could change a person’s outlook on life. There are so many wonderful quotes about kindness that I found this week. Here are a few of my favorites:

Amelia Earhaert “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees”

Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible “

RAKtivist; “kindness is seeing the best in others when they cannot see it in themselves” and “kindness is free to give but priceless to recieve ” “kindness is loving yourself enough to love those around you “

Kevin Health: ” NO act of kindness is too small, the gift of kindness may start as a small ripple that over time can turn into a tidal wave affecting the lives of many”

Amy Leigh Mecree:” Kindness can transform someone’s dark moment with a blaze of light “. “You’ll never know how much your caring really matters”

This week I noticed that when I did something kind for someone else they returned a kind act. There are so many kind people doing kind acts already . When I focused on this specifically this week and was sharing and corresponding to others about their acts of kindness ( in the alliance ), the feelings of personal pleasure , happiness and positive energy were amazing. I felt so much gratitude . I enjoy doing things for others and do not expect anything to come back to me. However , I experienced and was more aware of kindness in others ! I was so pleasantly surprised about the discovery . I feel that I need to always be kind because the magnitude of this simple act can change lives , change the world , and make the world a better place because of connection to others. This can be done at work, or at home .

    …I feel that I need to always be kind…

    If I’ve realized one thing with the MKE, it’s that it’s not ‘one and done’! With our focus on kindness last week, a part of me that has long been dormant has been reawakened. Why stop now!

    Philip, this reminds me of the week we had to focus on the plant growing. Isn’t it magnificent to think of kindness taking root and making such an incredible impact that we may never see??

    As always, thanks for sharing and being so involved in the MKE experience, it’s a gift to all of us.
