Give yourself to kindness

When you offer kindness to others you also give great kindness to yourself. For kindness engages your most powerful instincts, and propels them into action.

Your kindness connects you to the best that is within you. It brings out your highest levels of intelligence, effectiveness, creativity, and understanding.

Undertake an act of kindness, and you compel yourself to care, about others, about yourself, about life. Kindness sharpens your focus on the goodness, the beauty, and the limitless potential of the moment you’re in.

Give kindness, without concern for whether it is deserved or not. Because no matter what, you deserve and benefit from the extension of your own kindness.

What is the kindest thing you can do, right now, for someone else? That’s also the kindest thing you can do for yourself.

In your work, in your play, in your life, find ways to give yourself to kindness. You’ll give great value to everyone involved, especially including you.
