Six Word Fridays: Kind

1. I really love the Dalai Lama.

β€Ž”This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. ”

~ Dalai Lama

2.I really love the Paradoxical Commandments:

“The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.”

~Kent Keith

3.We should totally do this. Totally.

4.This is also a good plan.

5.This is a short list of

the qualities that the kind of

person I want to be has.

 

6. I see you. I hear you.

I validate you. I love you.

    I need to work on #4. Less reacting, more showing kindness regardless. Yep.

    I’m in love with the thought of practicing senseless beauty. And random acts of kindness, well, absolutely!

    I love the lighthouse quote the most. People do so often need to be taught or reminded how to be kind!

    Fantastic!! 2 and 4 are tough ones because we are so easily motivated by others instead of recognizing that doing good, even when unrecognized, is what makes us feel better.
