Finally, we’re past the proverbial New Year Resolutions’ annual blow-up time! Now we can get on with some real-life changes!
I don’t think anyone would disagree.....kindness is not on the world’s main stage right now. There’s a whole production of others overshadowing kindness that is beyond our control:
Who can serve up kindness when there’s a whole stovetop of boiling-over pots to watch? That’s when we can choose a healthier focus.
Kindness has been studied in-depth (heart-to-heart kindness vs. etiquette-niceness) and has evidenced a measurable, good health impact:
Being ‘Mr./Ms. Nice-Guy’ is good. For us ‘helper types,’ we need to start at home, avoiding burn-out and being kind to our inner person first:
When we know how kindness feels, we are better equipped to be kind to others and to change their and our own narrative.
“You cannot do kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
