When is the hardest time to be kind? I find it really hard to be kind when I am tired or when I have had some experiences that have left a sour taste in my mouth or when I am just feeling plain blah! It is always so much harder for me to be kind when I am not feeling so great myself.
But I have found out something very interesting when I am at my lowest and it just feels too hard to go and help someone else. When I put myself aside and go and do something nice suddenly I feel better, more energised and I get a more positive attitude.
Kindness is contagious.
Years ago I participated in a snowball service activity. One person was given the task to go and serve someone 3 people. Then when they had completed their 3 acts of service they had to go and put 3 snowflakes on the snowball on the notice board. The next three people then went and served 3 people and put their 3 snowflakes on the snowball and so on and so on until the snowball was huge and each person in the group had been served numerous times.
The outcome, beside a massive snowball that just kept growing, was a sense of unity, love and friendship between the group and a feeling of peace in each person.
Being kind is one of the best things for our health and for our soul
