I must admit lately I have struggled with showing kindness. Between my niece passing and my uncle suffering with cancer I’ve really struggled. How can I show kindness when I’m upset and mad that these horrible things keep happening to my family? For me I am not trying to be unkind on purpose, but i’m not trying to be nice either. Sometimes I have to put an effort into being nice especially when Im grieving.
When I look at my little girl and see how pure and innocent life can be I am quickly reminded how important it is to be kind and show kindness to everyone. She has her whole life ahead of her and if I do not show her how to be kind then my daughter will never learn how to spread kindness throughout world. As a mother and a parent I feel like even though I am grieving and may not always want to show kindness I need to. Leading by example and showing my daughter how to be kind to everyone even during the bad times is what I need to do.
So today since it is Random Acts of Kindness Day, I encourage you (even if you may not feel like it) to be kind to whomever you may be around because lets face it you never know what pain they are going through in their own lives.
