Kindness is a language. Imagine that. And it crosses all boundaries. Let us love one another – with kindness. It’s not about being right.
The Paradoxical Commandments

Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

People don’t remember what we say, they remember how we made them feel.
Thank you, yes, how we make them feel. Your posts always bring a smile to my face my friend. 🙂
Oh I love those paradoxical commandments! Great post, Diana. What’s really fun is when someone doesn’t expect us to be kind and then is surprised and taken back when we are. Gotta love those holy moments like that. Blessings, Natalie 🙂
Well said, even the blind can feel it. Kindness.
Amen Seeker, amen.
