Tomorrow, November 13th, is World Kindness Day
This is a special day to focus on the good and pass it forward.
I'm not sure what I will do to celebrate. Having a day set aside is a good reminder to embrace the spirit of kindness. The more often we are kind, the more effortless it becomes. We also have to remember to be kind to ourselves. I don't mean go out and buy yourself a new pair of shoes. I am talking about letting go of something you've been beating yourself up over. Kindness begins with me.
These are a few of my favorite kindness quotes:
- Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. -Mark Twain
- A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. -Saint Basil
- Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate. -Albert Schweitzer
- You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
