DogAnswer this:  Is doing something you do not want to do for someone else a kind deed?  Or, is it something unkind you do for yourself?  Hmmmmm.

As I pondered this question I didn’t know the answer at first.  I can do something kind for someone else but if it is at my own expense, it just might not be a kind deed.  Sure, it is kind for that person so that definitely counts.  I pondered about it a little longer.  I then came to the realization that if I am doing the kind deed from my heart, it is certainly a kind deed for both.  If I chose to do it because I “should” all over myself, then that would not really be a kind deed, at least not in the true sense of giving and receiving.

So there you have it.  Do kindness with your heart and everyone wins!

Peace and kindness,

Bill Kin
