three things {the kindness edition}

the kindness edition

  1. What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness.Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering, and I responded…sensibly. Reservedly. Mildly.

    Or, to look at it from the other end of the telescope: Who, in your life, do you remember most fondly, with the most undeniable feelings of warmth?

    Those who were kindest to you, I bet.

    It’s a little facile, maybe, and certainly hard to implement, but I’d say, as a goal in life, you could do worse than: Try to be kinder.

    Now, the million-dollar question: What’s our problem? Why aren’t we kinder?

  2. if you have a day (or even just a moment) where you think the world is an ugly place, go visit the kindness blog and i promise something there will restore your belief that kind people exist (just maybe not anywhere near you right now)
  3. be kind, starting with you by bella cirovic, for kind over matter
