Kindness breeds kindness. ~ Dr. Angi
Smile and the world smiles with you. When you bestow kindness upon others, kindness is paid forward. As you make someone’s day, do they become negative, bitter or angry? Certainly not. They start to glow, smile and become positive. This in turn will fuel an act of kindness for the next person. (There are videos of this on YouTube.)
I recall a time after a long day at work, when I was visiting my mother in the hospital after she had back surgery earlier that day. I had not eaten before the visit and I was feeling a bit peckish, so I stopped at a Chick-fil-a on the way home and ordered a simple Chick-fil-a sandwich with iced water to drink. When I went to the pick-up window, I learned that the customer ahead of me had paid for my order. That was such an uplifting surprise! So, I immediately decided to do the same thing. It felt great to make someone’s day as someone had made mine.
Initially, it may take practice to choose love, joy and kindness; but soon it will become second nature. As you live in kindness, you will see more and more kindness in the world. You will see more people smiling at you and you will feel more positive energy around you.
Kindness really does breed more kindness.
