Have You Been Kind Today?


I recently saw a quote that read, “We are not in the same boat. We are all in the same storm.” In the current life of COVID-19, I find nothing to be more accurate.

Every single person’s life has been altered in some way, minuscule or massive, by the pandemic. And just as we have been faced with different changes, we have also all been hit differently by those things.

There are a lot of people going through many unknowns in life. It’s important to remind ourselves that because of this, we need to be extra kind to one another.

No one really knows what another person is going through. So many times we get consumed by our own battles and needs that we forget that there are billions of other people going through similar things. Everyone faces their own inner battles.

Being kind can go a long way. The simplest action or words can make someone’s cloudy day just a little brighter. In a world where it seems all we hear is bad, choose to be part of the good.

To you, a small act of kindness may not seem like anything at all. But for someone who needs to hear it, it could mean everything.

Kindness doesn’t cost anything, but it can save a lot. So, choose to be kind today.
