Hop on the train of KINDNESS and see where it takes you!

The very nature of kindness
Is to spread.
If you are kind to others,
Today they will be kind to you,
And tomorrow to somebody else.


--Sri Chinmoy

------------------

So really, what IS kindness?

It is the quality of being warmhearted and considerate and humane and sympathetic.

------------------

Kindness

Kindness planted in the soil,
of another with a need...
Will one day blossom back to you,
a product of this spirit seed.


------------------

Are you a kind person?

Have any of you ever heard the saying, "Kindness is a virtue" or, "You get what you give?" Well I know I always have. They could not be more true. I am going to compile a few short stories and poems about kindness, friendship, and how we all need to stick together. Life is to short to make it difficult for others. So I challenge all of you to get out there and do a good deed for another. It will make them happy and give you a warm fuzzy feeling for what you have done.

------------------

Need some ideas?

Need some ideas on what you could do? Here a few basic tips from this site: http://www.happiness-project.com/hap...ips_for_p.html

1. Birthdays. This is so easy. Gather the dates of important birthdays, enter them into one of the internet reminder sites, and send happy-birthday emails throughout the year. Super-bonus: two friends sent me emails yesterday for the Little Girl’s birthday—I was so touched.

2. Thinking of you. I’m working hard to send an email every time I think, “I wonder if So-and-So saw this article about broccoli” or “This reminds me of the time in college when So-and-So and I went shopping during a hurricane,” etc. It’s so nice to know that people are thinking of you.

3. Help people think big. Nothing is more encouraging than a friend throwing out some huge goal and saying, “You should do that!” “You should write a book, you should start your own firm, you should run for office, you should join the Council on Foreign Relations.” You never know, sometimes one encouraging comment can have extraordinary effect on someone’s life.

4. Recommendations. If you know of a terrific ____, tell your friends. Mention that you have a great source for some service or product, and remember to follow up with the referral information if asked. This seems too easy to qualify as a good deed, but a recommendation can be a huge help.

5. Introductions. For doing business, for blind dates, for people moving to a new city—making introductions can make someone’s life a lot easier. Connecting people is an extremely helpful good deed, so it’s worth a bit of thinking and prodding to make it happen.

------------------

Reflect on a poem/short story.

What I would like to do is put up about one poem and/or short story a day for us to reflect upon. I highly recommend subscribing to this thread so you can visit often and read the new poem/short story and share your thoughts.

All credit is and will be given.

------------------

Share the kindness of another member.

Along with this, I would also like this to be the place where you can give kudos to another member here on WI. This could be someone who has done something nice for you, gone out of their way to help you, or is just generally a great person to communicate with.

We have so many great members here and it is about time they were recognized.

------------------

***DO share your thoughts, let me and others know what you think.
***DO subscribe to this thread and visit often.
***DO share your own stories of kindness and possibly be a featured story.
***DO share with us what others have done for you.
***DO have lots of fun and keep this thread moving and grooving.

Well, snoopysgirl was helping me transition into the 'big' ge, and so I would like to recognize her, and I also would love to do all of the gift coaches! They work very hard... just like the mods and admins, who I would like to recognize too.

There are lots of people who come to mind when I think of kindness on here.

One of them would be Pandyma618. Although I have never met her, and I don't think I have talked to her many times on here, she gave me a very nice gift as a random act of kindness.

I also have had a little secret santa on WKW. She has sent me many, many, gifts on Webkinz, and lots of them had some pretty high values on them.

Gingerly is always generous with kind words and advice. She has made me feel like I was important on here, and I have treasured her friendship.

Some other people who are generous with kind words are:
Jillion
Lea
Smitchell
Luvwebbies
Mom2hnemi
Gottaluvjoe
Ave
Stylediva
AngelofHarlem
MissGnomie
Animegirl
Puppylove♥
Pufflezz_01

Each one of the people listed above has been extremely kind, and written me messages that will remain with me for quite a while. Whether it be a PM, or a visitor message, or recognition on a thread they have posted on, they have made me feel all warm inside.

And, that's just the beginning. There are tons of other people who are shining examples of kindness, that we can all strive to be more like.

And of course, you i<3, are a shining example, as well.
