Do good anyway

I have been thinking about how important randow acts of kindness are. Sometimes we forget to say:"good morning", "how are you?"or "thank you" but it is never late to be kind. Indifference can do a lot of damage. I think it is a horrible word!
We have a saying here:
Kindness generates kindness.
So, spread the word and keep in mind that kindness is still a lovely religion as Dalai Lama said.

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

  3. This reminds me that how we treat children today gives them either positive or negative feedback. It takes much longer to undo the damage done by negative feedback than it does to give positive feedback. I believe in that and I also believe in the words you shared with us today. This is lovely art and a very well written post.
