Kindness – such a bigger than life way of being.
Little trinkets, a smile, helping your mum carry those groceries, driving your friend to the airport, buying the next round, letting your sister watch what she wants on TV, forgiving, teaching, not needing credit when it is yours for the taking, walking slower to match their steps, sharing your Netflix account, keeping those plants watered, appreciating, giving way to a driver, leaving a tip, saying thank you, a hug, a morning greeting, a text to check someone’s well-being, being there for someone without having to be asked, saying hi to the new guy at work, laughing at someone’s unfunny joke, encourage, motivate, be present.
It is so easy to be kind because it doesn’t require you to run into a burning building and saving a child; it’s the accumulation of the little things. Things that are immeasurable, things that you have internalised and repeat on your day to day. Things that you do without thinking. Things you do without considering karma or whatever is to come after you are done with this life (if there is anything at all).
From personal satisfaction, from seeing the good reflect in the world you live in. From being able to sleep at night.
