Kindness is a universal language that can be learned at a young age. My son is a year old and the way I act around him and treat him now will affect the person he becomes in the future. To be a kind person you need to see someone be kind. If you are raised in a toxic environment your actions as you grow older will most likely become toxic. Making the world a kinder place means raising your child to act and behave a certain way.
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Recently the family car broke down and we sat in the Lowe’s parking lot for Three-ish hours. A baby strapped to my back and my husband trying to figure out why our car won’t start people just walked by like it was nothing. A handful of people looked our way but immediately turned their head when we noticed them. One man stood by his truck for 5 minutes watching us struggle before he left.
In the world we live in today we are seeing less and less kindness. We are seeing people so self absorbed that they will turn away when something requires them to go above and beyond to simply be kind. Mark Twain hit it on the dot when he said the quote mentioned above. Kindness is a universal language, everyone understands it even children. This week I want to challenge you to make it a point to be kind with a week of kindness! I want to challenge you to simply not look away when you see someone in need even though it may be the slightest inconvenience to you.
