You could begin with presenting a simple act of random kindness to anyone or even an animal. It doesn’t have to be some major production; in fact, it shouldn’t be. The simpler the better.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson//aka Lewis Carroll. We will not open that can of worms; however I like the quote of his that you selected and posted here. Yes & Yes.

 

I want to share the experience I had this morning. I was chatting late yesterday evening with a classmate and put off doing laundry until just before I was scheduled to work. At about thirty minutes before my shift was to begin; I pulled my work clothes out of the washer and must have made a distinct face:unsure: a lady, also doing laundry said, "what happened to your clothes?"

I think I left a couple of brown paper napkins in a pants pocket, because little specks of that shade of brown were all over my black chinos, both pairs. I was trying to regroup and focus on how to resolve my problem---when the laundry attendant walked over, told me not to worry, she put my clothes in another machine, quick cycle and she left the laundry, went to the dollar store and bought me a lint roller!! she also paid for my dryer and i made it to work on time and no one at work was the wiser.

As i was walking out the laundry mat door towards work, I mentioned to her how I had a thread about kindness, and in august, Verizon posted that Kentucky was the kindest state, and i would mention this on my thread. 

She said, "feel free to use her name. so, it is the least I can do. (and never let it be said i ever failed to do the least I could do)  did i say that right?? :lol:, yeah, i think so.

THANK YOU BRANDY KEAN for your act of kindness when i certainly needed it.

This thread’s ideal is to shine light on the ideal of kindness.

'Cruelty' coexist kindness?

 

Sometimes we have to be 'cruel' ~ to be kind?

It's a choice; we can coexist with cruelty and/or we can coexist with kindness.

As cocreators, which we choose, reverberates.

 

when I return to the laundrymat, I will let her know.

Does being tired and or feeling body as heavy make it harder to be kind?

 

Hi Jaba,

 

On the contrary ~

There is a lightness of being ~ with kindness?
