“Kindness is a hard thing to give away. It keeps coming back to the giver.”
It is worth the reminder: Be kind to someone today! It is so obvious from our own experience that being kind vs. being aloof or cruel is enriching for you and for the object of your kindness. However, in our hectic and anxious lives, we often forget this simple truth and act in ways that belie our desired kind intent. What to do? Act intentionally in kindness. Spend the next hour thinking intentionally about providing a kind reaction in every situation. Let this be the start of a kindness habit. You know you can do it, and when you do, it will come back to you in waves.
