#WorldKindnessDay

Spoiler: this post was written under the influence of kindness.


The definition of kindness does not change much if you overlook it in different dictionaries. Overall, everyone believes that kindness is the quality of being generous, friendly and considerate towards others. Its easy definition and catchy key words, however, are not directly linked to a greater use of this attribute. You don't need to reach further into your conscience to point out at least one of the many excuses human beings use to explain the lack of kindness in the World: being busy, being stressed, being worried, being angry, sad or tired, forgetting it in general. However, if you ask those same people what they feel when they receive an act of kindness from another person, it is more than likely that they will name at least one positive emotion. Because that is what kindness and love and consideration do to people: they make you feel good about yourself, they make you feel loved, they make you reach for that true smile hidden amidst seriousness. So, if it is scientifcally proven that something is good for you, why not get it on a regular basis? Not only that, why wait for someone to give it to you when you can give it to other people and still experience happy emotions?

Today is the World Kindness Day and this shall be your daily reminder on how important it is to be kind. Be nice, be kind and do it without any motive. Smile more, say more 'thank you's, compliment people on their physical appearance and on their talents and virtues. Say something nice, tell jokes and make someone feel good about themselves. Seeing someone's smile-wrinkles (I am sure this is not the official name) is the best 'thank you' you can get from someone - knowing you have made them smile is an incredible feeling. You may be the only compliment that person will get that day and/or your words may be everything someone needs to hear to get through another day. Your words have a great power, so use them for good.
Another note: do not forget to be kind to yourself. We may sometimes put ourselves in second and forget that we too are humans and we too need kindness. Be kind to yourself, don't pull yourself down because you failed one or two times - encourage yourself and pull yourself up and believe that you will always have another opportunity. Compliment yourself, feel proud of your achievements and allow yourself to laugh and smile. You deserve kindness.
People say too much of something is not good for you. I can see the bright-colourful-letters indicating the word 'truth' laying on top of this quote. But I can't agree with it completely. Because, love, kindness, thankfulness, consideration... Why shouldn't these qualities be in excess in the World?


(Oh, and don't forget)
Throw kindness around like confetti.


Have you being kind to someone today?
How to you think someone can show kindness?

Always with love. x
