Category Archives: Kindness


Tonight, I had a conversation with myself. It went like this:


“What good does carrying all that anger do?”

“Not much,” I replied.

“What can you do to lighten that load?”

“I’m not sure.”

“C’mon, think. Don’t be lazy; this is important.”

“Okay, I could talk about it in therapy.”

“All right! That’s a start, but try to think of something more original.”

“I could smile more.”

“Sure! Go for it. But dig a little deeper. What can you do that would help you feel less angry all the time?”

“I’m not sure.”

“C’mon man, think!”

“Well, I hear a lot about random acts of kindness…”

“You’re on the right track!”

“Hey, I know!”


“I could practice kindness!”

“Yes! And how are you going to do that?”

“I could have a Kindness Quota.”

“You bet you could! What would that look like?”

“I could start by doing one act of kindness a week.”

“Just one a week?”

“Hey, cut me some slack. I’m a beginner.”
