Value in the giving

There have been times when the kindness of another person has changed your life for the better. And it’s easy to see that kindness has the power to reach far beyond itself.

In the most difficult of moments, kindness heals and reassures. Kindness gives comfort, and hope where there was none before.

Kindness can inspire confidence. It changes for the better the perspective of those it touches.

When you seek to make a difference, kindness is a great place to start. Just the simple desire to give it is all you really must have.

So give kindness, freely and without hesitation. Whether you get it back does not really even matter, for its true value is in the giving.

Live with kindness, and you’ll always see life’s very best possibilities. For in kindness, is the heart of who you truly are.
