ICYMI: It Doesn’t Cost Anything To Be Kind, originally posted on March 19, 2018, examines how simple it is to be kind to another and how profound of an impact it can have.
I recall the motto my father raised me on and how RJ Palachio’s Wonder reinforced this sentiment.
So, smile at someone, hold the door for them, say thank you, have a pleasant tone, engage in a conversation, be a damn human.
It shouldn’t be so hard.
As Tupac Shakur wrote in “The Power of a Smile”:
The power of a gun can kill
and the power of fire can burn
the power of wind can chill
and the power of a mind can learn
the power of anger can rage inside
until it tears u apart but the power of a smile
especially yours can heal a frozen heart
