Constant Kindness~~~~~~~~~~ Susie Austin

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate. Albert Schweitzer  

Today I would like to remind everyone the importance of being kind. This seems like a very fitting quote as in my little part of the world it is supposed to begin to warm up and the ice should significantly melt today. As the ice melts I think of little kindnesses than cure many misunderstandings, mistrust and all that goes along with it.

 I suggest start the New Year fresh, melt away all the hostility and negative feelings as this will bring you happiness and being kind will not be an effort.

I would like to give you a wonderful example of random acts of kindness. I have been feeling under the weather as of late and have little or no time to be sick. A good friend surprised me at my office with home made turkey soup and a DVD of one of my favorite bands, the Tran Siberian Orchestra. I was touched and it did make me feel better.

Kindness is something that brings results immediately. Along with making someone else feel good makes you in turn feel worthwhile and whole. For today see how kind you can be and how many acts of kindness are in your power to accomplish.  

Make this day count and look forward to tomorrow with a smile and hope for all is within our grasp.

One Response to “Constant Kindness~~~~~~~~~~ Susie Austin”

  1. Good choice on the quote. I am currently reading _Out of My Life and Thought_ by Albert Schweitzer. Although he is mostly famous as a ‘Jungle Doctor’ and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his “Reverence for Life” many forget today that he completely re-invented himself AFTER a career as a world-famous organist and cutting edge theologian. While writing his famous book _The Quest of the Historical Jesus_ he choose in 1905, at age 30, to become a medical missionary. Although he already had a PhD in theology, he returned to college for an additional seven year to obtain his MD. He then dedicated the rest of his years to helping other people alturism was a big part of his own ethos.
