2 3 Kindness | Ballet Webb

Sunday, December 8, 2013



If you watch the Ellen DeGeneres Show, you know that she always ends her program with these words:  “Be kind to one another”.   What a wonderful thing!  We all need that little reminder, I think, especially on trying days.  It helps to remember that there is always someone having more problems than we are, and could use a little kindness sent their way.
According to the World Giving Index 2012, the United State comes in fifth in their poll ranking the Top Ten Kindest Nations.  Australia was first, followed by Ireland, Canada and New Zealand.   But we are only fifth.  Sigh.
An article from Time magazine ( http://healthland.time.com/2013/05/09/why-kindness-can-make-us-happier-healthier/ ) says that being kind to others is good for you, and the reason for that can be traced to a specific nerve.  Pretty interesting stuff, but I believe on some level we all knew that – because being kind simply makes us feel good.  Not to mention that it makes the world overall - or at least our small part of the world – a much better place.
So have a wonderful Sunday, and be kind to one another.
