We rise by lifting others

Image result for kindness quotes

What used to be common sense – is now a trait that has to be actively ‘educated’ into the minds of citizens nowadays. What happened to basic manners and etiquette? Worse still – announcing yourself like a senior citizen/adult but carries him/herself like a child! Screaming, shouting, name shaming publicly .. not to mention those limited edition words of profanity and abuse.

And sometimes these group of people are those who hold powerful positions in the community/society. They set the rules and you, by hook and crook would have to obey that. Inevitably the 7 deadly sins always seems to find a way to penetrate relationships or organizations and cripple everything in a horrendous tumble.

So while it can be challenging or difficult to topple down Evil. I think we should take every measure possible to not be dragged into the devils politics and be a positive person.

I’m an avid fan of Kindness. No matter how small. Because it not only makes you feel good but it infects the people around you as well. Kindness can come in the form of a small nod of encouragement. A sincere smile. A helping hand. A motivating speech. A listening ear. A shoulder to cry on. The single best audience for a veteran bands comeback. A love song. A warm meal. A cold drink. A penny for the vending machine. A telephone number for a job prospect. A surprise parcel at times when you’re not expecting it. A ‘good luck’ card. A minute to exchange ‘hi’. A picture together.
