Kindness is everything we need in life. Are you kind to yourself? Are you kind to people? Are you putting people’s interests before yours? Are hurting people or helping them? Are you treating people with respect? Are you reaching out to people in need? Are you living for yourself? Or are you living for yourself and others?
The art of kindness is the art of living together. It is the art of working together. It is the art of reaching out to people who critically need our help. We are not created to be alone; we are created to live, work, help, play, and eat together. According to social psychology, “human beings are social animals.”
Make people happy. Hug them. Tell them you love them them. Tell them they are beautiful. Give people life. Inject hope into people’s lives. Don’t add sorrow to people’s lives. Add joy, happiness, and fun to people’s lives. They need your love. They need your time. They need your smile. They need your call. Call people you have not heard from, and tell them you just want to see how they are doing. They will appreciate it, and you will appreciate it, too.
“Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.”- Isaac Bashevis Singer
Albert Schweitzer, theologian, said, “Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to people, and they will be kind to you.
Your mind needs food. It needs positive food. The best way to keep a healthy mind is to feed it with positive things. If you feed your mind with positive thoughts, with positive events, instead of negative events, you will get a happy mind.
A happy person is someone with a happy mind. You cannot be happy inside and be unhappy outside. Your outside life is a reflection of what you are feeling inside. You can make your mind happy. You can make your mind sad. It is your choice.
You can make your mind happy by focusing on positive things, by focusing on the good things in any situation, by doing the right things, by helping those in need, by putting other people first, by loving people unconditionally, by being grateful, and by forgiving the people who have wronged you. When you feed your mind with these things, your mind will never know sickness. You will have a healthy mind. You will have a sound mind. You will have a productive mind.
Make sure you are always working to protect your mind from bad people, people who will never find anything good to tell you. Stay away from those people.
Feeding your mind with positive thoughts does not mean that you are going to be happy all the time. That is not the case. It means even when you are not happy, you still find a way to make the situation a positive one. That is, you never allow the negativity around to decide how you run your life.
Always focus on the positive things in your life. Always appreciate what you have, and where you are in life. Feed your mind with positive thoughts. Try to develop the habit of thinking in positive ways. When you see a negative thing or it happens to you, try to picture it in a positive way. In doing so, you have created a positive picture of that event in your mind.
You are created to be a positive person, not a negative person. Stay positive!
