I have a collection of thoughts and quotes that I go to often when I am having a difficult day. I will share a few of them with you through this challenge. Most of what I share you may have heard, but maybe a word or a thought can help someone out there. We never know what the next person is going through. In this post I chose kindness as the topic. Always be kind and non-judgmental as you just never know what the next person’s situation may be. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle or a struggle you know nothing about. I also learned through my grief over the years that if you help someone else, just a small act of kindness, it will in turn help you.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness. ~Seneca

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~Mark Twain

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. ~Amelia Earhart

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. ~Tenzin

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. If to any good being
    at least one more,
    If to these two beings,
    add two more,
    do you know how much he does?
    At least a thousand and two.
    I hope, hopefully, hopefully, hopefully, hopefully,
    to every good being stands at least another one
    Then it stops you from fear
    and out of fear is shame,
    when there is someone with you, with me and with them,
    when there is no one alone.

    If it is difficult not to hesitate,
    do not suffer just so,
    get a friend and paw give,
    I will give you a hand.
    This is part of a Bulgarian song in the style of Pop. It is called “Hope”.

  2. Wonderful quotes and a great reminder to be kind to each other, Carol! Sometimes it’s so easy to jump into conclusion and be judgemental, even if we don’t have bad intentions. Also, a small gesture can have a huge impact on someone!
