Choose Kindness

Thursday September 15, 2016 #829

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

~Og Mandino

Imagine if you could let go of your human emotions of pettiness, jealousy, revenge … and focus instead on the equally human emotions of caring, kindness and understanding.  If even some of the time when you are feeling normal but destructive negative emotions towards someone, you can intentionally shift your focus and offer kindness instead, you take control and ensure you and the people around you benefit.  There is no gain in indulging negative impulses.  Use your power to choose, and choose kindness.
