In the midst of living life, be KIND.
If life is one of success, be kind and show others the way.
If there is joy, lift others up and be kind.
If there is a setback, be kind. This moment shall pass.
If there is anger, be kind and speak when the mind has calmed down.
If there is sadness, be kind and gentle with yourself.
Kindness is love. Love does not always have to feel 'good.' Love knows that no matter what shows up in life, we have freedom to choose words and actions that do not contribute to the suffering of ourselves and others.
Kindness is a strength as the poet Kahlil Gibran wisely summed up:
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.” – Kahlil Gibran
