Today a friend sent me a link to a short video clip on kindness: https://www.facebook.com/die.koepfe.der.genies/video/1542118169374657/. It is not in my language and that does not matter. It shows small acts of kindness that are so easy to take for granted, like picking up a baby or toddler’s toy when they have thrown it out of their pram. Picking up a bottle left in the park and putting it in the rubbish bin. Instead of complaining that someone is in your way, helping the person struggling with a pushchair getting off the bus.
Small acts of kindness are important and infectious. If someone is kind to you it is more likely that you will feel good and be kind to other people.
I truly believe that kindness could make such a difference to our everyday lives, whether it is being kind to ourselves or others.
