Let’s talk kindness.
Kindness is something that cost people so little, and still it’s something we constantly need to remind people about or see them disregard. Kindness is sometimes seen as a weakness or as a sign of being soft, but I say fuck that. Kindness is important. Kindness makes life better for everyone.
So today I want to talk about kindness and 10 little things you can do to be kind every day.
Kindness – the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.
That’s it. That’s all kindness is. Being friendly, generous and considerate. And we can all do these things, and through kindness make the lives of others, ourselves, and the world in general a better place, and I’m for one is all about that 🙂 And despite what many people will have you believe, kindness is not expensive. All it require is a bit of effort and time, depending on what you chose to do.
So here’s 10 different acts of kindness, that can help make life a little better.
