I decided to post a kindness post today, as it is usual, on Tuesday. Only this is a SORT of KIND of kindness post.
The reason I say that is, I have a question for you today.
What do you perceive as being kind? I suppose in today's busy dazzling world, it needs to be considered.
What is kindness?
According to the website, Wikihow, there are a few things to keep in mind when trying to get a grip on this emotion.
First, Wikihow says, "Understand what kindness is and is not. At its most basic, kindness is about caring genuinely for others around you, wanting the best for them, and recognizing in them the same wants, needs, aspirations, and even fears that you have too. Kindness is warm, resilient, patient, trusting, loyal, and grateful. Piero Ferrucci sees kindness as being about "making less effort" because it frees us from getting knotted up in negative attitudes and feelings such as resentment, jealousy, suspicion, and manipulation. Ultimately, kindness is deep caring for all beings."
And I certainly could not have put it better.
Today, dear blog friend, I wish you all the kindness that is in the world. If I were to see you in person and find that you needed my kindness, I would give it, unquestionably.
