Resolve to Be Kinder This Year
Every new year inevitably brings with it the desire to improve our lives. Health and fitness centers and diet plans take advantage of this by offering deals this time of year, and one can only wonder how many people make it to February with their diet or exercise plan intact. While it is always good to turn over a new leaf and to improve our lives, I’d like to suggest that a better New Year’s resolution would be to resolve to treat people with more love and kindness. This is not an easy thing to do. Family, friends and co-workers can all be difficult, and it can be especially hard to be kind to those who aren’t treating us well, but treating others kindly is often the only thing that will turn an angry person around, and even if it doesn’t soften the other’s wrath, you will have maintained your own composure by treating them kindly and won’t have anything to regret later. Resolve to be kinder and more civil this year. What the world needs is surely more love and kindness and this resolution, besides improving your own life, has a good chance to spread kindness and love to those who really need it.
