The happiest people in life are the givers not the receivers.
Kindness is a word that is thrown around a lot nowadays, but many of us do
not really have the idea what it truly means to be kind. Kindness can range
from full blown gestures or something as simple as a smile and a wave to a
neighbor. It can bridge the gap between those parted by hate, and give those
who love the confidence to trust the people around them. It is a truly
powerful virtue, but we often forget to utilize it, or more importantly,
I have learned that more often we never realize what an intricate
kindness plays in our lives. At some point, we have all received
kindness from someone, big or small, that knowingly or unknowingly changed
our lives in some way, and we, in turn, have shared that kindness with
someone passing by us, and changed their lives as well.
Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a
look, a touch. It is anything that lifts another person.
I have also learned that in helping others, we help ourselves, for
whatever good we give out, complete the circle and come back to us. A tree
is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost. When
we sow courtesy, we reap friendship, and when we plant kindness we gather
love .When we carry act of kindness with no expectation of reward, rest
assure that one day someone will do the same for us, for no act of kindness,
no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.-
The kindness we give is not always the same
thing we get in return. Sometimes, it is more; sometimes, it is less.
Sometimes we get none at all. But God knows that the one who willingly gives
is always more blessed than the one who receives.
By Tim Pedrosa
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never
lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness
gathers love. - Saint Basil
