People Are Kind

When Michael Jacobs ponders, I enjoy reading about what he is pondering about, perhaps wondering about and wandering with his words, but he will digress!

I Believe Most People Are Kind


I ponder.

Yeah, I ponder quite frequently. 

Recently, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP wrote an ActiveRain post 'Etiquette and Comments on Social Media'.  I pondered her thoughtful post.  My mind wandered a bit too.  Pondering goes hand-in-hand with wandering I might add.  Toss in some wondering into this mixed salad.  Pondering and wandering and wondering.  I digress.  And that may have occurred while commenting on Patricia's post.  Admittedly, my comment on Patricia's post may have gone off-track too.  It happens.  But there is a point.  Really there is.  Earlier that day I read an editorial which spoke to me in much the same language as Patricia's words. 


A quote came to mind: 


"Be kind whenver possible.

It's always possible."


This quote(Dalai Lama) is ideal for Carol Williams' December Challenge on ActiveRain "What Inspires You".  I don't believe the quote is naive.  And it is not so simple.  And if it was so simple everyone would be practicing it.  Everywhere.  Anytime.  You and me.  Friends and Family.  Neighbors and Co-workers.  Other people.  In other countries.  In our own country.  You get the idea.  Right? This is not a resolution.  Although it is personal. It starts with me. Each of us.  You and me.  

It is a direction.  Each day.  You know maybe it is quite simple afterall.  

You never know what can happen. A quote.  An inspiration.  When you ponder.

Good morning, Brian England Michael is always kind.... but, you are, too.... whenever we are kind to those we do not know, we often leave ourselves vulnerable....fully exposed.... we never know what their  next thoughts will be...

Top of the morning to you Brian England! I was lucky to read Michael Jacobs post first thing today and now, thankful you selected it for a re-blog.  

When it comes to kindness, you personify the definition. In the spirit of Christmas, you don't just celebrate it, you live it. I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas.

People are mostly kind yes.  We should also strive to be kind no matter what, so that others around us may follow.

Morning Brian.

I truly believe the vast majority of people are kind and thoughtful.  Sad to say, most of what you hear on the news, are the bad ones.

Hi Brian... as I told Michael after reading his post, I come from the school of thought that more people are inherently kind than not.
