I’ve encountered this mantra on my Instagram, Facebook, and just about everywhere: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” At first, I embraced it. I can do more “kind.” Yep, I can be known as kind. “You know Christine Merser; she’s so kind.”
ah... the secret words are in "the moment..."
Lord knows, nobody has ever accused me of being "kind." My directness gets in the way of folks attaching that moniker to me. I like directness...and (IMHO) it doesn't prevent my kindness. But it is often loud enough that those on the receiving end can't sift out the kindness. To bad for them, I say.
