"Spread Your Kindness"

"Live as though every positive thing you do will start a chain reaction,
the culmination of which is so beneficial
you cannot even imagine.
Live as though even the smallest kindness,
passed along from one person to another,
can change the world for the better.

Live as though every good thing you do
is multiplied many times over before
surely and eventually returning to you.
For that is indeed the way life can work.

You have a far greater influence than it
may seem over people and events,
even those far removed from you.
Because the way you act toward others
gets passed along in ever-increasing numbers.

Think about how you do it yourself.
If someone has been kind and considerate
to you, you're far more likely to act
with kindness toward others,
and many of them will do the same.

If, in one hour you were to spread kindness to just three people,
and each of them did the same,
and the process continued to repeat itself,
the results would be astounding.
It would take less than 24 hours
for that kindness to be spread
to every person in the world.

Spread your kindness and consideration freely and respectfully to others.
And the positive benefits will go farther than you can possibly imagine."
~ Ralph Marston

   ...A few thoughts on Kindness...

I will not refuse to do the something I can do.

let me do it now,
and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
