Living In Gratitude: Kindness

Know that your kindness has a ripple effect in the universe.

Just like gratitude, kindness is powerful. It can have an enormous impact on the world. Opportunities to be kind are all around us, each and every day. When we spread the seeds of kindness, we help others and also fill our own souls and hearts.

Kindness is a virtue and is a much-sought after value in many cultures. No act of kindness is every wasted. It is even possible to be kind to those for which we have no fondness. The smallest act of kindness is worth more that the greatest intention and is appreciated a thousandfold.

Lend a helping hand to someone in need. It doesn’t matter if their need is big or small but by helping them, we make the world a better place. Kindness is contagious. Sprinkle it liberally wherever you go.
