The world needs more than nice
The world needs #moreKIND
#ad When I took this photo in #Annecy, France, I thought how nice it was that this woman would take her mother for a walk. But what I found out after talking to Sabine, here with her dog and her new friend, Renee, was that she walks every day with a different older person to help lift their spirits and do a few errands. That is Kind #MoreKind #dslr @kindsnacks
The way I see it, being nice is easy to do. While it’s important, it doesn’t take much to be nice to one another. Niceness is found in words, but true kindness is found in actions. Going out of your way and that extra mile, taking someone else into consideration before yourself. Kindness knows no bounds and is priceless once given. In a world where we’re constantly hearing about the negatives and evils, we all could use a little extra kindness. Read More >
The way I see it, niceness and kindness are two different qualities that are frequently interchanged. Niceness is pleasant, but it often lacks conviction. It is cosmetic and short-lived. Whereas kindness requires brevity, passion, and soul. People who are nice are harmless, but they also do not prevent harm from happening. A kind person does everything they can to make the world a better place. Whether their actions or words are small or large, they go out of their way to stand up for the well-being of others.
The world needs less observers and more take-action kind of people. We have an overflow of people who standby and do nothing. We have too many people asking a meaningless “Hi, how are you?” and not enough asking “What can I do to make your day better?” Humanity is short of people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get dirty for a community in need. Kindness is not fleeting and emerges from a place of compassion, love, and authenticity. This civility is a dimension of grace that should be done more often. Read More >
