Be Kind - Always

Be Kind - Always

Weekly Column by Anne Gingras

As Easter weekend is upon us, I spent a few moments reflecting more than usual. It was a long week for many, and everyone felt out of sorts. Is it because of the effect of a full moon? Perhaps because of an upcoming eclipse? Or have we forgotten the importance of something more straightforward yet powerful? As we go about our busy lives, it's easy to forget the simple yet powerful act of kindness. It's easy to get caught up in our problems and concerns and forget that every person we meet is fighting their own battles, too. But it's precisely in these moments that kindness can make all the difference.

Kindness is not just a nice thing to do; it's essential for our well-being. Studies have shown that acts of kindness can boost our mood, reduce stress, and even improve our physical health. When we are kind to others, we create a positive ripple effect that can spread far and wide, brightening the world around us. But kindness is not just about doing good for others; it's also about doing good for ourselves. We become more compassionate, empathetic, and understanding when we practice kindness. We begin to see the world through the eyes of others, and in doing so, we become more connected to the world around us. So, let's make kindness a daily habit.

Whether it's a smile to a stranger, a kind word to a friend, or a small service for someone in need, every act of kindness counts. Let's create a world where kindness is the norm, and we lift each other instead of tearing each other down. Together, we can make a difference, one small act of kindness at a time.

 Have a beautiful week, and be kind to others and yourself.

I see you, and you matter.
