Conscious Acts of Kindness

“I shall pass through this world but once.

If therefore, there be any kindness I can show,

or any good thing I can do, let me do it now:

let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

― Etienne de Grellet

With all that is going in the world,

It can be easy to miss the every day opportunities to be kind, but those opportunities have not gone away!

We always have the opportunity to choose our words and how we express them. We have the power to choose to focus our actions on growing loving kindness in the every day moments.

And on top of that, research shows that being kind even helps us each to feel better!

What’s not to love?

    1. most welcome 🙏 I hope it brought a smile to your face as you read it 🙂 Have a great day!

  1. Timely topic. Recently, as our kids lives became even more complicated, we have stepped in where we can to walk the dog, bring supper, pick up and deliver groceries. The same goes for our friends dealing with real life problems. When we hear they are in crisis, we always look for some small way we can help make their lives a bit easier. Life is too short to go through it with anger and evil intent. Cheers. Allan

    1. That’s really kind of you, Allan. And you are completely right, in the end the anger consumes the angry and what fun is that? Kindness is lighter and easier in many ways as it also allows us to be kind to ourselves

    1. I do agree, so I will start with working to be kinder to myself and to those around me 🙏 I hope you have a great day, John 🙂

  2. The quote you opened with? My father wrote that on every greeting card he ever gave me – it is embedded in my brain and my memories of my father.

    1. It was my first time seeing it as I prepared this post, so perhaps it was meant to be shared with you as well 🙏 I hope it brings some warmth to your day, Grace 🙏 Thank you for sharing your story

  3. What the world need most desperately right now is more kindness. Bringing awareness to this forgotten fact is a huge step towards world peace. I embrace the random acts of kindness theme. Have been using this month in most of my twitter posts. But not just in February: the randomactsofkindness month… share it sporadically during the year. This great matter is one we must strive to make the norm. Thanks for the post. xoxo

    1. Hi Selma! I do agree with you what is your twitter as well? Would love to follow along 🙏 We can each be kinder to each other and especially to ourselves as well

  4. Kindness is a wonderful theme for our troubled times. Lovely post. <3 When I had a Girl Scout troop, many years ago, we went to the river and picked up rocks to paint. It was a fun project. Like kindness, it didn't cost much, but produced some thoughtful gifts. 🙂
