Be Kind… Always

image

I was speaking with a friend today about a battle that I’ve been fighting for a long time. No matter how many days, seasons pass the temptation to get pulled back into a war of egos and wills seems ever present. In spite of the truth that no one wins a war of ego the urge to fight screams “to war!”

Each person we encounter is fighting a battle, pushing back a demon, overcoming an obstacle, kicking a habit, struggling just to stay alive. They may look normal, calm, like they’re keeping it together but inside they’re simply trying to make it through the day.

Be kind. Oftentimes one word  or action can help a person keep standing or make them want to jump off a cliff.

blessings,
