Get After It: Kindness

By
Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

"One kind word can warm three winter months."

Japanese Proverb

 

優し

 

Your action for today

is to say something kind

to two different people.

e.g.

I complimented my bank teller's wedding ring

and my waitresses' service last Wednesday

when I was out and about. Both gave me a big smile.

Kindness is such an important trait.  We all can do better.   Hope you have a relaxing weekend.  Thanks again for the post.  Time to get out and shovel, oh wait I live in Phoenix, sunny and 70 degrees today. bill

Hello Thomas - kindness always matters.  And it never needs to be in short supply because we can "produce" it and then share it over and over.  And in so many different ways.

Good morning, Thomas... really, it's so easy to be kind I can never figure out why so many people have a problem with it.  And it's FREE!  One of my favorite quotes is "Kindness costs nothing, but it means everything.'

Thomas,

Just two?  We practice kindness daily in every thing we do, whether on a phone call, out for dinner, or giving some a cart at the market.  No reminders needed.  A

HI Thomas- I love the quote because I'm all about being kind to others. I truly believe that if we all practiced more kindness, our world would be so much better.

Thanks Bill Salvatore - YVP Blog true words - yes I did get out and shovel actually, but no snow - dirt. I was repairing a section of my irrigation system Saturday.

Michael Jacobs so true - how lucky are we that kindness can be perpetual if we make the effort to keep it as such.

Nina Hollander, Broker I think there are many that would be kinder if they had to comment face to face or at least face a consequence for their unkindness online. Social Media made us anti-social in many ironic ways.

Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets hi Thomas... I've often said there's nothing much social about social media. And I agree... a lot of these nasty people on social media hide behind it because they are cowardly bullies.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel well start with two; while for many like you I'm preaching to the choir, there are some that can use the reminder and two would be a 200% improvement.

I agree Kathy Streib I'm reminding myself daily to be kind and show grace; the world we interact in today is much different than 2019's world.

Hi Thomas,
This is an easy assignment. It's so easy to find ways to compliment or thank people.

I love that picture with the silhouette of the girl against that bonfire.  It warms the heart while looking at it.
