World Kindness Day

It’s World Kindness Day today!!

Kindness is one of the first things we learn when we’re little right? Being nice to each other, sharing our stuff, it’s pretty basic!

Somehow it’s got lost a bit though, under a cloud of wanting more, reaching higher, aiming bigger. These new qualities, in my mind, have stamped our community, love of the here and now, enjoyment of this very moment, sharing.

We always want more. But do we need more? And is more what will make us happy?

I read an old quote yesterday, it said:

“When someone steals another’s clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not?”

Doesn’t the excess bread in your cupboard belong to the hungry?

Have you been kind today? Have you been nice? Without expectation; without pre-conception; without worry of judgement? There’s still time to make the conscious choice to be!
