Be Kinder than Necessary
“Be kinder than necessary, because everyone is fighting some kind of battle.” This saying inspires me. We don’t know what someone is struggling with. They might have just received a terrible diagnosis of illness; someone may have just lost their job. The list of trauma and struggles is endless.
Choosing to be kind can be the catalyst to brighten someone's day and more importantly, help them through their day.
Last week my friends and I went out for supper. My order got messed up. First, I was served a rotten piece of fish. Then the cook dropped the second piece on the floor. After waiting a full hour for my order I had a choice.
Am I going to be kind and make their day just a little brighter or am I going to be rude and darken their world?
We weren’t in a hurry. I didn’t have any whiny, tired children with me. We had no place else we were going; we were just hanging out and having fun! I chose kindness.
I decided to laugh about it and say, “Hey, I have cooked many-a-meal and I understand. These things happen.” Why would I choose to give the waitress or anyone else in the restaurant a bad time? What would that accomplish?
When my order came it was hot, delicious with no charge!
We always benefit from choosing kindness. It lifts our spirit as well.
