In today’s world, negativity often seems to take center stage. Sometimes it’s easy to focus on the negative and to allow the toxic events we see around us and in the news consume us. I’ve found that one of the easiest and most effective ways to combat all the bad is to focus on good – specifically on kindness.

The concept of kindness goes beyond just being nice. It includes being generous and considerate. Giving of yourself in some way is a part of being kind. It involves some sacrifice, no matter how small. It doesn’t require reciprocation and doesn’t expect anything in return.
