RAoH - Kindness

Image from here

Kindness flows naturally from people with healthy self-esteem. It is like sunshine, it makes everybody feel warm and cared about. With winter coming we could all do with a little more sunshine and warmth.

I love the feeling of being kind to others and the feeling of when someone is kind to me.

Someone holding the door open for me when I am struggling with two kids, a pram and a shit-load of shopping.

A knowing smile from a stranger when one of the kids is screaming in a very public place.

When a friend messages just to say they are thinking of me. It simply makes my day and means the world to me.

Kindess is a way of connecting with those we pass in our daily lives.

I have decided as winter approaches to add a little more sunshine in my day as be as kind as I can be to the people in my life.

Are you going to be kind this winter?


  1. Beautiful, Sam. Kind strangers make my day too. A smile or nod goes a long way. I'm definitely going to be more kind too!

    1. My Dad always tells me how more people used to say Hello as they passed in the old days :)

  2. Aww I love this - sometimes it's good to be reminded of it! Have a great weekend!
