During the holiday season we are usually more mindful to be kind to one another, a truly wonderful and necessary message that should really last all year long. The impatience, anger, dismissiveness, indifference and arrogance that is seen amongst some people is disturbing at best. So what can we do to reverse this behavior, that if allowed to grow is certain to make life more challenging.
It’s very easy- be kind. And it all starts with you! You can choose to be kind. None of us are perfect, and we all have imperfections and areas for improvement, but we can always focus on kindness with our words and actions towards others. Lead with care and empathy. Acknowledge we are all lifelong learners, and yes, sometimes we can be wrong, so use it as a learning opportunity. Remember we have zero control over others, so focus mostly on what you do and say. Message your words with care. All it takes is the action of one person to make a difference. So let’s all give one another the best gift of all- kindness!
