Kindness


Do you ever wonder what is your purpose in this life? I constantly think about it simply because my life right now hasn't been all rosey and dreamy for a while. Of course there are many things that are good in my life: I am happy and thankful that I have two most beautiful daughters who are healthy (knock on wood!) and they love me so dearly... I'm a very lucky mother and I try to figure out every day what can I do to show my daughters how to lead a good life...

One of the things my mother has taught me which I cherish to my heart is "kindness". She's the kind of person if she saw someone in trouble, she would stop and help. She is full of love and such an amazing human being. That's why I tell my daughters to be kind to others, lend hands and always try to find goodness in people (you may think it's too early to teach my kids about kindess, but I think it's important!)

Anyway, I always believe "kindness" is contageous. And I always believe if every single person chooses to be kind and be compassionate, the world will be so much a better place...

One person who spoke my mind was Conn O'Brien who he departed Tonight Show a month ago.

"All I ask is one thing, and I'm asking this particulary of young people that watch:
Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism.
For the record, it's my least favorite quality --- it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get.
But if you work really hard and you're kind,
amazing things will happen."
I still have his last show on DVR and watch it when I feel down. I hope he moves back to NYC and start his own show again.. Here is Conan's Last Speech if you're interested.

I also love this Liberty Mutural's CM - Seriously, if we all act with kindness, our world will be so much better...


Do you believe in kindess?

Kindness is out there - thank the Lord for that! In among all the stories of sadness, hate and war, there are stories of truth, strength and love. It's always out there, and it comes when we least expect it. God is so amazing - He shows His love for us through the most unexpected means.
