Kindness Fridays

Posted on Updated on

Community. That’s what this world needs: a unified body of individuals.

That doesn’t mean we all have to have the same political, social, or religious affiliation. What it does mean, however, is that we choose to live in unity and in support of each other.

Have you had the experience where you’re having a pretty darn good day and someone says or does something to you and your entire day’s direction is negatively altered?

In the alternative, have you experienced a bad day when someone says or does something to you and your entire day’s direction is altered for the better?

In the former, someone chose to live separate from you; chose to not recognize you as his or her fellow man; chose to harm you and widen the gap between the two of you.

In the latter, a kind-hearted person chose to come out of themselves; chose to join with a fellow survivor on this planet where division and hatred would seek to become the norm; chose to bridge the gap between the two of you.

My modus operandi is that I assume each person with whom I come in contact during my day needs my friendly words and actions in order for their day to improve. I believe in most cases I’ll be right on the money with that MO.

I mean, it sure couldn’t hurt, could it?

      You are so right, and I don’t mind that kindness is contagious.

      Jill, it is such a delight to be connected with you. I think of you often, and when I do, it always makes me happy.
