I noticed, on a recent walk in my neighborhood, some very nice words written in chalk on the sidewalk – “you”…”are”…”amazing” and “you are super”. While these words weren’t meant for me specifically, they were there nonetheless and reading them brought a smile to my face. This was a reminder to me that words really do matter and kindness does make a difference.
“Don’t ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance or my kindness for weakness. Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.” – Dalai Lama
