Kindness: 1/17/07

Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.

-Annie Lennox

I'm grumpy this morning. It's dark. It's cold. It's Wednesday. I did not bound out of bed this morning thinking kind thoughts about the world. In fact, I've already been unkind to my poor husband and it's only 5:58 a.m. But, I know that somewhere in the drive between here and work, I'll shake off the unkind facade and manage to be pleasant all day long. Deep down inside though, I very well may still be thinking grumpy thoughts all day long.

How do you define kindness? What can you do to promote kindness between the people you encounter every day? Do you consider yourself a kind person? Where is the line between kind and push-over?
