Simple Acts of Kindness

Great video and great song and lyrics.
Simple acts of kindness are what we used to call being neighborly and somehow we lost that back in the 60’s to 70’s. It is something simple we can bring back into our lives by just noticing other people and what they may be going through. It doesn’t take much to give up a seat on the bus or let the mother dealing with toddlers have the closer parking space.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is something that we can all give to our children (& the other significant people in our lives): Praise them by giving a compliment for any achievements (find something everyday); Encourage them by expressing belief in their abilities & potential; Support them by showing that you are on their side by being present, listening & expressing compassion when they have a bad day; Feedback by helping them to see another perspective on something that they didn’t see.

Discernment

Discernment is a word that we should pay more attention to. We all say we don’t have time. Discernment will free us up from being “busy”, to spend time on the important things. Is it more important to watch that TV or spend time with our children one on one; finishing that project that you are going to get to tomorrow; calling your parents just to say I love you; spending some cuddle time with that significant other?
