“My religion is very simple. My religion is Kindness” – Dalai Lama
For the past couple of months, my shoulder and arm have been hurting. I know three other women experiencing shoulder pain which makes me wonder if there is truth in the saying “carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.”
When we become burdened with pain and challenges, we need relief. I told my physical therapist today she is a miracle worker. With her care, she is mending my arm. Care is what our world needs to heal and help one another.
A week ago I attended a documentary addressing hate in our country today. A few young men were passing out Kindness Matters cards. Their gesture was touching as we gathered for this difficult topic. In a time where we are polarized by politics, we need compassion and consideration to unite us for our common goals: being healthy, staying safe, having freedom.
Kindness matters. Visit the sick, lonely or elderly who may not have family close by, be polite to everyone you meet, let someone ahead of you in line, start your day with gratitude, volunteer for a good cause, give someone a hug, smiles are contagious – pass them on.
