Kindness Includes Everything, by George Saunders

As I continue to reflect on kindness, what it means, how we live in kindness, I remember these words that Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips". So beautiful and, to me, paints such a beautiful picture of kindness in all that we are and do. These tips put a smile on my face every time I read them.... I hope they spark a smile on yours!  Enjoy!!!

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

 When kindness and love are the foundation of our interactions, all else seems to fall in to place.  I believe whole heartedly that kindness and love must be authentic.  And to be able to truly and authentically share kindness and love, I first had to start with myself.  Sure, I tried to put forth and I did put forth kind acts toward others but there was always a little something missing… both on the giving and receiving end.  When I stepped back to really reflect and focus on first healing myself… being kind to myself and finding the place where I could love the essence of who I am, I found that each act of kindness and each interaction wrapped with love became so much more authentic and complete.  I find that giving with pure intentions of kindness and love is really a gift to me as well.  It completes the mending of all the tattered and torn parts inside and I know ultimately that is mending tattered or torn parts of what’s around me as well!!!!  Many kind wishes of love to all!!!!!

 For me, finding time to Be is very humbling.  Facing the demons and the egos can be daunting but when doing so a quiet, calm does surround me.  When I allow myself the time to really let go of the whirl wind inside my mind, gain clarity of calm, to listen, and to Be, I then and only then can begin to Connect.  This puts in play a motion that opens my ability to Connect with others as well.  Thank you for the gift of your words and for the gentle reminder to pause and Be!
