My Friday thoughts: Kindness and Compassion are choices I can make every day.
I know that I’m an optimist and an idealist; people have been telling me so my whole life, as though in pointing out the obvious I will somehow change. But why? Who would benefit from my being less than who I am?
We’ve all seen enough of people being awful to each other. We’re well aware of what selfishness and myopia does to destroy community. We know full well that rudeness and cruelty run rampant if left unchecked. This is why I choose to look for the goodness in people and cultivate a strong, positive circle of light around me. Darkness is only pushed back by Light.
I want to point us back to seeing the humanity in those around us, to remind ourselves that we are much more alike than different. It’s not naive- it’s actually pretty darn brave to keep standing up after being knocked down time after time.
My choice is kindness, my choice is compassion. I hope you will choose to join me in sharing these today. ❤️
