Strength, Courage, and Kindness

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust and hostility to evaporate.”

 

~Albert Schweitzer

So much of the pervasive issues of our time:  lack of trust, anger and hostilities, even wars, begin with individuals focused on petty grievances vs. an attitude of kindness and forgiveness.  Kindness is not weakness, but rather a courageous show of character strength despite differences and real or perceived slights.  It is often said that small acts of kindness can change the world.  Whether or not you believe this, I hope you can accept the potential for your kindnesses to make a difference in your own relationships.

 

Be strong.  Be courageous.  Be kind.
