Strength of kindness

What is one of the surest signs of strength? It is kindness. It shows real confidence and self assurance to be kind. Kindness comes from strength. And kindness spreads that strength to others. Kindness says things that words alone could never convey.

Actions taken in kindness produce more powerful results, more quickly than would otherwise be the case. The genuine strength that kindness carries is difficult to deny. If you are tempted to be unkind, remember that by taking such an approach you are choosing an uphill battle. All that extra effort to avoid kindness will ultimately gain you nothing.

Choose instead to act with true kindness. And add the undeniable, positive power of kindness to your every effort.
