The Ninth Day of Christmas: Be Kind

It seems that everywhere I looked over the past month this quote was front and center –

be kind

I know that this rings true for me and for many of you.

 Here is the thing…

be kind

I remember several years ago, while going through a particularly difficult time, a friend telling me –

“Everyone is dealing with something and if they say they are not, they are lying!”

I did not not know then whether she was just saying that to make me feel better about circumstances or if indeed it was the truth.

At this point in my life I know it to be the truth.

And so ever since I began seeing this quote pop up, seemingly everywhere, I have begun  looking at people a little differently.

It really makes a difference…

Be kindtree

“everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about”…
