The art of being kind
One of the most basic laws in life is that every act of love,
kindness and generosity will return to you many times over. Giving without expecting anything in return fills your life with joy and companionship. And who doesn’t love to receive gifts?
Most people usually give gifts during Christmas and birthdays. But that doesn’t mean it needs to be limited to these more obvious occasions. On the contrary. To get the most out of the surprise moment, we should pay more attention to each other when we least expect it. Via Shepherd, it’s possible to show appreciation to loved ones all year round with fantastic gifts. A go-away gift for the neighbor, cuddly
autumn rug for grandma, Monday-blanket for your partner or summer slippers for the best friend as a moving-in gift.
Finding ways to tell someone how much you like that person on a daily basis is really very simple. And somewhere in the middle of the least expected, or most obvious, occasions there is someone who feels appreciated, loved, surprised, and seen. But it doesn’t stop there.
It will bring just as much back to you.
Lao Tsu wrote several thousand years ago
that “kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in giving creates love.” Something
to live by, maybe even more so today.
