Have you ever helped someone out of instinct, because not helping never even occurred to you? Remember how surprised you were at their gratitude? It is easy to feel like kindness and gratitude are becoming rare in the world today, but the truth is that it is all around you-you just need to learn how to see it. Kindness shows you how to do just that, and inspires you to take part with tips, ideas, recommendations, and advice. You will learn to see yourself and your surroundings in a kinder, happier way. Kindness is not people-pleasing; people-pleasing comes from a place of anxiety, while kindness is borne out of empathy. Kindness expects no reward or recognition, and is just as beneficial to the giver as the receiver. Kindness can be a grand gesture, or something as simple as a smile. It can be quiet or loud, simple or complex. This book helps you internalize the fundamental truth that kindness does not require wealth or possessions, or material giving at all-whatever you have to offer is enough, and it may just change someone's life. Learn how to see the silver lining and take care of yourself in difficult times; do and say kind things when you're not feeling very kindly; express kindness even when other people are rude or critical; enjoy self-care and treating yourself; and more.
