A random thought......

You know just a thought…
How hard is it to be kind? Really? I am not trying to pat myself on the back, but how hard is it? I had an incident today and my comment was “no problem, we can work this out”. The response was”Oh thank you so much for understanding”
Understanding what? Things happen, we work them out and life goes on, so again I ask;
How hard is it to be kind??

Have a nice weekend!


  1. More words to live by, Jane!

  2. I have a quote by the Dalai Lama on my page: "Be kind whenever possible ... it is always possible".

    I couldn't agree more with you Jane, but it's amazing how many people can't seem to be kind isn't it?


  3. I learned years ago that it is better to be kind than to be right. It does get easier to be kind when you practise kindness. And I love the phrase 'we can work it out'. Seems applicable for every activity in life! Deep breath, we need to keep our priorities straight and not waste time 'chasing the wind'.

  4. Oh, I agree...I remind my high school students of this all the time. And your picture is very sweet. Have a Happy Saturday, Natalie

  5. True, easier to be kind than harsh.

  6. Unfortunately, I think many people have forgotten how to be kind. I always try to smile and say thank you, and it is amazing the response you get!

  7. Hi I'm popping in (nosing around) fellow Time For Tea Swappers.

    Lovely words. I also like the saying "Smile it make people wonder what you're up to".

  8. So true Jane. I think more than we know that is what life is about. Learning to get along with life's problems and treating others kindly and thoughtfully. Sometimes I wonder what I can do for someone with a problem. But often we can't change it so just being a good listener and sympathetic is so imporant. What a great thought to put on your blog.

  9. How wonderful of you - it is nice to know that there are people trying to be kind - afterall - it isn't so hard and we all need more kindness.


I always love to hear your thoughts!
