Show a Little Kindness

|

Do you sometimes have to remind yourself to be kind to your family? I do, and it’s embarrassing to admit. I wish it didn’t happen and hope I’m not the only one who admits to guilt here.

Stress, grudges, hurt feelings… whatever. You know how we often can hold onto all of the wrongs we feel were done to us, refusing to let them go. Even if we had a bad day at work, we bring it home. And we take it out on the people around us — our spouse, kids, etc.

So lets remind ourselves of our blessings. That we’re lucky to have each and every person around us and that all deserve respect and kindness.

After all, when it’s respect and kindness we’re dishing out, we may just get a little back in return!
