As we kick off the holiday season, this seems to be a good time to share a few “words of wisdom” about kindness. For many, the holiday season is a time to celebrate and rejoice! For many, the idea of ‘what it should be’ and ‘what it actually is’ makes the holiday season particularly difficult. However, the one thing we can all share in this season is the spirit of kindness.
For those of us who are celebrating and rejoicing, we can share our joy by making a conscious effort to show kindness to others during this festive season. (Sometimes we get so caught up in our own excitement, that it can be a challenge to always think of others) For those of us who are struggling, we can show our kindness by being truly happy for those who have much to celebrate and by being as kind as possible to all. (Sometimes when we are going through a difficult time, it can be difficult to be as considerate of others as we should be). Either way, let us all get into the spirit of kindness this season with these kindly ‘words of wisdom’.
