"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." ~ Plato.

Kindness doesn't take that much effort. But it can mean a lot to someone who is doing it tough.

It's not hard to soften your tone. To offer a hug. To consider your response. It may make a huge difference in someone else's life.

Kindness is free.

Your tone of voice when the kids come home this afternoon.

A hug when your partner comes in the door.

Did you listen? Really listen?

Smile. Thank people. Make someone you love a cuppa. Offer to carry a package. Make a child laugh.

What do you have to give the world?

One small act of kindness can have lasting and ongoing effects.

Random acts. Paying it forward. 

Being polite to those who serve you daily. 

What is their story? What are they going through?

Is it a hard battle?
