The Cost of Kindness.

It doesn’t seem like we can do important, world-changing things daily.

But in reality, we can. We can do the most important thing every time we interact with another living being:

“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”

~ Henry James

If we only have one rule in life, one thing to guide our actions, it should be kindness.
