“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” -Aubrey Hepburn
This September at ALCW, we are celebrating the simple act of kindness. The thing about kindness is it’s free. In a world of chaos and stress, it is easy to get caught up in the everyday routine of living day by day. I ask you to take every day of September and live it with kindness in your heart and make it become your daily routine. Whether it be reading a daily devotion for yourself, waking up 5 minutes earlier to enjoy a cup of coffee and snuggling with your babies or fur babies, or giving a simple compliment to a stranger, these gestures are valuable. Simple acts of kindness add value to ourselves and to others and help us live just a little bit better in this life that can sometimes be chaotic. For me, I have learned that kindness doesn’t always have to be reciprocal. Growing up, my mom always said “do on to others as you want done to yourself, and you don’t have to like someone but you do need to be respectful to them.” I have never took this lightly, and have used this phrase my entire life. Kindness is something our world is lacking so much of. We really have to look for the good in others, speak kind words, and walk through this world with the knowledge we are never alone. Audrey Hepburn has this down! That is why the quote speaks so much to me. If only I could have met her. We are here to lead and help people see kindness through our actions! Our actions are powerful and can make an impact on people. We don’t always know what someone else may be going through, so remember to breathe, love, and be kind to one another.
