To give kindness we need to know the meaning of kindness.  Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.  It’s about being nice to others and showing you care.  There is no excuse for not being kind.  Just remember, it is always possible to be kind.

 

So how do we learn to be kind. Usually we begin learning this in our childhood, but there are definitely different circumstances for everyone.  Since we are all unique.  The most important thing is it’s never to late to start learning. By teaching children to care for others this shapes the child’s values and opens the opportunities to experience acts of kindness.  Kindness is best learned by experiencing it. When you feel love and kindness towards others, you will have inner happiness.

 

The way to spread kindness is through education in human values. We need to practice compassion with each other. Often times we forget to be kind.  Not on purpose of course, we just aren’t being mindful at that particular moment.

 

There are many ways you can practice kindness towards others. Try doing something nice for someone else. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Treat someone by paying for their coffee or meal

Surprise someone with a special note

Share a hug

Keep some Starbucks gift cards with you and give to people to show your appreciation

Give a smile


Be inspired by people who show kindness to others. Even companies are helping to spread awareness about kindness.  Look at Subaru’s True Love Event during the month of February in honor of National Random Act of Kindness Day on February 17th.  They do random acts of kindness throughout the month for people that have no idea that they are about to receive an unexpected act of kindness.  We really enjoy the Subaru commercial’s, they make people feel good and inspire them to be kind, too!

 

“When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.” – Dalai Lama XIV

 

When you look, you’ll find opportunities to perform random acts of kindness.

LOVE is in the air. Today is a day filled with LOVE.  Yes, once a year on February 14th we celebrate Valentine’s day with those we love.  On this day flowers are shared, cards are shared, heart shaped boxes filled with candy are shared, meals are shared, words are shared, love is all around us.  There are shades of red shaped hearts everywhere for a 24 hour period, and when the day comes to an end there will be less shades of red shaped hearts and we tend to show love less.  Today should be a reminder that we need to GIVE love everyday, not just on Valentine’s Day.

What is Love? It’s my favorite 4 letter word.  Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from deep affection. There are many kinds of love, relationships with others is what most people seek out.  It’s a way to inspire more connection to all of the people around us. Love is beautiful, and a feeling that must be shared.  Be generous with love.

What I love about LOVE is it can be easily shared in so many different ways. The best thing is that Love is absolutely FREE to give, and we definitely could use more love in our ever changing world today and everyday. Our world would be a better place if we all just loved more.  All people need to feel love unconditionally. People that are loved feel better, are more positive, smile more, laugh more, have more energy, do more and GIVE more. Love is contagious.

There are many ways you can GIVE love to others, maybe a hug, a thoughtful note, a bouquet of flowers, a kind word, even an emoji or a simple smile.  You can think of all sorts of creative ways to share love with those around you.  I’ll let you in on a secret…The secret to love is simply kindness! Everyone needs a little more love. But most importantly, Love Start with YOU!

GIVE love everyday, try it!
