Day 73, March 14

The other day, I Googled the word kindness and discovered an article asserting that the simple act of looking for kindnesses will change one's life.  We know, of course, that performing kindnesses will change our lives, but I hadn't realized that by merely looking for expressions of caring and compassion will also change our lives.

Isn't that a wonderful concept?  That by being aware of the performance of kind acts we can make a difference in ourselves.

What kind of difference would that be?  Would we be more aware that others are trying to do good in our world, just as we are?  Would we be less apt to judge others with a harsh yardstick?  Would we be more prompted to perform more kind acts ourselves?

Maybe all of the above. And more.

Joy for today:  looking for kindnesses.

  1. I like the comment about the harsh yardstick. Really, there should be no yardstick involved but if there is, let's at least make it a little less harsh.
