“Kindness is not something that we do, it’s something that we are.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer Author, “The Power of Intention”
I just heard this…not sure who this guy is, but the thought stuck in my head. It’s the same with love. It’s not something we feel, it’s something we do.
How can we BE kind and not just ACT kind? What does it take to be kind?
Acts of kindness are good, don’t get me wrong, but I think I’m on board with this line of thinking. I have recently experienced people being kind–to me. People who don’t really even know me, just being there, and being kind. This is more than a simple act of kindness, where you give a homeless preson a couple bucks for lunch, or step out of your comfort zone for someone else’s benefit. I’m speaking of genuine, heart-felt kindness.
I think I lack that.
