Kindness: paying it forward

So…you’re walking down the street and someone hands you a flower. Or you’re sitting on a bench and a stranger sings you a song. Or maybe you’re the one handing out the love.

On both sides of the equation, smiles drop like stones into a pond, rippling outward. It’s such a small gesture, but it slips into the heart and rings the bell of generosity.

Generosity in the heart of the giver, generosity in the heart of the receiver. For a moment, worries and griefs and planetary problems shrink to the size of a smile. And anything is possible.

Welcome to Kindness 101.
