cool to be kind

Today is World Kindness Day and in observing a day that has been globally observed since 1998 in order to just stop and be kind to one another for the sake of being kind, I find myself struggling just a little bit.

Being kind should not be hard. It isn’t hard. It really is not.

Okay, maybe it is hard because we sometimes want so hard to be right…All. The. Time.

So while there is SO MUCH NOISE about big things and little things and how I should be thinking and feeling and acting on them, I am going to try to be kind.

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough. ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt
