I always thought I was a kind person. I genuinely care about other people and really really try to watch what I say to try and not offend anyone. I volunteer at the local womens mission and the humane society and my church. Then I realized I can also be very unkind. Getting mad at the little old lady driving slow, yelling at my daughters when they get on my nerves, flipping myself off in the mirror when I try on clothes.
Well this past tuesday at my apples of gold meeting, kindness was our discusison. We were asked to give examples of acts of kindness that we had done RECENTLY and it was actually hard for me to think of anything! I was absolutely appalled! I guess there were little things that I had done but not anything that I felt worth mentioning. I could hardly even give what my definition of kindness would be!
Anyways it got me thinking. Wow! I really need to step it up! These women that are part of this group are SO amazing! They really reminded me how GREAT it feels to be kind and give without even thinking about it. I want that! I want to be a kinder more compassionate person.
And I want you to be too!
Tell me your definition of kindness and what acts of kindness have you comitted lately?
