I’ve come to believe that the most important measure of life is kindness, freely given without condition or expectation of reciprocation.
Kindness is a mindful practice that we can exercise in our thoughts, body language, words, and deeds.
When we extend it to others, we recognize that we are reflected in everyone. When we extend it to ourselves, we reinforce the fact that we are worthy of compassion and belonging.
Kindness is a healing balm and a bridge that enables us to traverse the divide from fear to love.
