Kindness + Us = Everything

“Too often we underestimate the power

of a touch, a smile, a kind word,

a listening ear, an honest compliment,

or the smallest act of caring, all of which

have the potential to turn a life around.”

     ~ Leo Buscaglia

Ever had a rough moment or day?  Well, if not, let me attest to the magnificent potency of a simple kindness.  How it can touch us, move us, even radically transform our experience-and us.  Especially when we are being tossed around by tempestuous seas.

We may know the truth of the quote above, sent me by my lovely, inspiring friend, angie . And how it really so often takes only an infinitesimal amount of time and energy.

But, or maybe AND, it bears repeating.  So, I thought I would share.

Along with my warm wishes that you are enjoying some lovely moments today, including the ineffable gift of kindness….

    As always, Chloe, your timing is perfect! It usually is so simple, so easy. We (I mean I !) just have to remember that more often. Spreading little words of kindness and appreciation is such a lovely thing… ❤

    This makes me want to not just be more receptive to acts of kindness directed my way but to enact even more of my own… costing nothing but, as you say, of such great value. Talk about growing abundance for free. 🙂
