A kind thought is nice, but it’s not enough. A thought stays in your mind and unless you do something about it, you are the only one who is going to know of it.
A kind word is nice, but it’s not enough. A word is a superficial manifestation and not necessarily a truthful one.
A kind act is nice, but it’s not enough. An act is immediately visible, it can be used to hide an intent, to pursue an unkind agenda.
The only way is to be kind with thoughts, words, and acts. To yourself first, and then to others.
Because candid kindness is contagious.
