The A-Z of Life – Kindness

Wouldn’t life be simple, and the world perhaps a more peaceful place if we were all treated everyone with a bit more kindness?

Why is it so hard for people to be kind?

From the school bully to the traffic warden who is pen poised to write a ticket when you’ve still got 5 minutes left to go?

If we want people to treat us kindly, then the first thing we have to do is be kind to others.

Being kind can range from just saying ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ to offering a seat on a crowded train to someone who needs it more than you do, ad infinitum.

Just small acts of kindness can sometimes turn someones day from a ‘day from hell’ to one that they will remember because someone showed them kindness.

I like to think that I am kind to people I meet along my path in life.

One day I hope that being kind to others will be seen as the norm rather than the exception!
