Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
~~ Henry James
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
~~ The Dalai Lama
I’ve encountered a number of nice people today. The lady at the doctor’s office. My doctor listening and encouraging me and giving me the medications I need to solve a few medical issues. The lady at the pharmacy.
Smiles. Nods. Kindness.
I said to the pretty lady at the pharmacy, “You’re so nice.”
And she smiled and said, “So are you.”
“It’s not hard to be nice, is it?”
“Not at all,” she said.
“Yet some people choose to be mean. Yet so many people choose that path.”
“Life’s too short for that,” she said.
Today I am grateful for kindness from wherever and whoever it comes. And I choose to be kind as well.
After all, it’s easy.
