Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks, shall win my love. – William Shakespeare
I once listened to a podcast where the author of a book on marriage said that one of the biggest predictors of happiness in marriage was kindness.
Were the couple nice to each other?
Our interactions each day are an opportunity to choose kindness.
With our spouse.
With the stranger at the gas station.
With the opposing political party.
With our sons and daughters, parents and friends.
Where to start?
Think of a time when you felt a kindness was done for you. Think of a way to do something similar for someone else. Look for the opportunity. It won’t take long.
Make it a great day.
