Kindness is a virtue. And while being kind might not be everyone’s cup of tea, there’s no harm in trying. The best part is that you can start right now from right where you are — with yourself.
You can’t be kind to others if you haven’t been kind to yourself. As I’ve said before, how we view things is how we do things. And if 2020 has taught me anything, it’s this — sticking with the fundamentals goes a long way in living a fulfilled life.
Here’s Henry James, an English poet, and Poet Laureate, on kindness:
Three Things in Human Life Are Important.Henry James
The First Is To Be Kind.
The Second Is To Be Kind.
And the Third Is To Be Kind
Be kind to yours and others. Could there be anything more important than this?
