One Kind Word Creates ONE Kind WORLD
"Nothing," wrote Tolstoy, "can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness."
The best part is the beauty is already in existence. It is up to us to reveal it.
One of the greatest feelings in the world is when someone says something kind about someone else I know. I love this feeling. The only greater feeling is when I get go back to original person and share the kindness, letting them know the high vibrations and positive impact.
A kind word is the greatest unexpected gift in the world. It feels great to give and great to receive. Get addicted to kindness. There is no greater high. Next time someone tells you that someone else has great energy, a great smile or did them a huge favor, deliver the message.
Over the past several days, I have been blessed with abundant loving kindness. I have received countless emails, text messages, cards and phone calls expressing gratitude in some capacity. All the money in the world cannot buy the fulfillment one feels from knowing you have touched the life of another human being. We should all know in our hearts that we are doing our work and the desire for feedback is pure ego. However, when there is no desire for feedback and it comes as an unexpected gift, it is truly a priceless gem.
A kind word multiplies. Just as in the past, I have shared about the detriment of gossip, a kind word positively affects three people: the one sharing, the one listening and the one it is about. Kindness is free and powerful beyond measure. If you are having a hard time communicating a kind word verbally, know that is just like learning anything new: start small. A smile from your heart is a perfect start.
If you want to change someone's day, give them a kind word. If you want to change the world, give everyone you meet a kind word. As Tolstoy says, nothing can make the world more beautiful than perpetual kindness. Remember, the best part is that the beauty is already in existence. Now it is up to us to reveal it!
Being Happy Healthy and Fit means cashing in on kindness. One Kind Word creates ONE Kind World.
