Kindness matters. I was going to get on the train the other morning and the station where I scan my card before boarding the train had a rock on top of it. On this rock was painted, “Kindness Matters.” I have included a picture of it.
Kindness does matter. In this day and age when everyone is so selfish and spoiled with instant gratification, this is a good time to stop and be kind to someone, put someone else before yourself, give instead of receiving and remember that we are all a part of the human race. The purpose of our race is to take care of each other.
Why is it that no one wants to take the blame these days? No one wants to admit they are wrong, say they are sorry, accept responsibility for their mistakes. What has happened to our world? Why are we so lacking in courage to admit to ourselves and to everyone else when we have erred?
Perhaps in this society that encourages failure, quitting, shirking responsibility and seeking out only what feels good, we are being brain washed into thinking not only are mistakes acceptable and avoiding consequences for them, but it is now the norm. It is time we mature and accept the responsibilities of our own failures and mistakes, admit them, and then learn from them and grow. It is only in this manner that we can become complete human beings and live the way we were meant to live. Then we can be a beacon, a lighthouse to others.
