Acts of kindness..
I have been the recipient of kindness. In the moment, the act is recognizably warm, humbling. Twice as warm for the giver – Warming 1st with the desire and then again with the giving.
A lot has been said about acts of kindness;
‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Sir Winston Churchill
“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.” – The Dalai Lama
“Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.” – Humphry Davy
On a long run awhile back, on a course I was unfamiliar with, a few of the faster runners held back to make sure I made the right turns. Small things, but recognizable.
Performing an act of kindness is a gift to oneself. Kindness is a wonderful thing……
