Kindness is so important to me, because I just wasn’t raised to be kind. I was raised to be strong and hold my own. To never let anyone push me around and to be tough. My mom was proud when people told her I was full of sass and attitude just like her. At the time it made me proud too.
But now, as a 32 year old mother, the one quality that impresses me above all others is a person’s kindness. I want my kids to be nice to everyone, and I want them to want to be. I want to work to be a kinder person, too.
My favorite people on earth are the kind people and I think that this is a simple message that can be spread that could solve a lot of problems. My random thoughts on a Thursday.
