International Kindness Day – November 13, 2014

International Kindness Day

How will you celebrate International Kindness Day on November 13th? If you are like most other people, you will simply ignore it.

It is not really that hard to celebrate it. Just take an extra minute to be polite. Say something encouraging to a counter person.  Say Something Nice; Be a Lifter. Give an older person your place in line. Open a door for someone. Say something affirming to your children or someone else’s children. Leave a bigger tip than usual. Call an old friend. Visit someone who doesn’t get many visitors. Write a thank you note. You will feel good at the end of the day.

Dr. Arthur Caliando, retired pastor of Marble Collegiate Church in New York, said it well. “Be kinder than you think it is necessary to be because the other person needs it more than you know.”

Fifty-Two Keys for Living, Loving and Working

Be polite

Always say “please” and “thank you.” Rudeness is never appropriate. When you are tempted to be rude, think of your mother. Would she approve of what you are about to say or do? Even in those situations where others make it difficult to remain pleasant remember who you are. Do not give over control of your life to someone else. Remember that you are in charge of you. Someone is always watching and/or listening.
