I took my boy to South Beach yesterday morning before I had to drop him at the Nanny and go to work. We snatched an hour of lovely time in the sun, playing on the grass and in the sand. It was a beautiful morning together.
While we were there I left a little home of happiness on a bench hoping for someone to find. I imagined that someone would pick it up and wonder about the little paper house and ponder on the idea of being kinder. Sometimes I am taken by surprise when someone does a small kind thing for me and I remember how little things can make such a large positive effect on our lives. It’s odd to think that some days I am kinder to strangers and forget to be kind to the ones I love. Having a little person who is constantly observing and mimicking my behaviour is a good reminder to be kinder to people. I am even more aware of how I treat people now that I have this little guy watching me all the time. Being a kinder person to others is the easiest way to make ourselves happier.
“For our life to be of value, I think we must develop basic good human qualities – warmth, kindness, and compassion”. – Dalai Lama.
