What I see and know to be true is that we do have a world overpopulated with smart people, intelligent people, people that are out for power, prestige and for themselves; their needs, wants and desires only. However, we need more “kind people,” that fill our world, and they do exist. We need more kind people that are not in the background of our world, but in the foreground, full and live and vibrant. Kindness changes lives, kindness changes the world. When we are kind to others, it reverberates back to us in ways that are miraculous. We need those kind people like you and me to give a hug to someone whose heart is sad. We need kind people like you and me to put a smile on someone’s face when they feel like nothing is going well in their life. We need kind people that can uplift our human race to that of great heights of beauty. It is the kind of beauty we forgot existed, due to the unkindness of so many people asleep to who we really are and were born to be.

Hate, destruction, unloving and unkindness in gigantic proportions are so well-known around the world, and reverberate into a snowball effect that hurts humanity and our planet in so many ways. It is the cause of this destruction in our world, and why peace and kindness seem to take a back seat.
However, put heart-felt kindness and compassion into our world, something that is not overrated, but rather underused, and our world will heal, our world will love, our world will be restored to the kindness that God intended for us when He created us in Love. Our world will be transformed into such loveliness and we can build and create and construct so many things with kindness, that are destroyed by hate, destruction, unloving behavior and blatant unkindness to our fellow human beings, animals, planet.
Is kindness being made fun of while being called overrated? Maybe perhaps those people expressing this, may never had been shown kindness in their lives, and do not know what the joyous feeling a small act of kindness given to them feels like. If so, I and so many others will be there to show you that kindness and rest assured your life will change.
Let us be those “kind people,” who live on this planet that continuously plant seeds of kindness. Let us be those “kind people,” that what is planted by us grows so large and vibrant, and beautiful that it overshadows all the hate and destruction that sadly permeate our beautiful world. Kindness is not overrated but underrated and underused by many.
Why is this so, that kindness is truly underused, instead of overrated? It is because as we see in today’s world, instead of bringing us up, there are many who are jealous and want to tear us down, it is easy to do that but it takes some loving thinking and action to bring us up and to be kind and loving toward each other. I choose kindness in my life and when we act kind, both the giver and receiver feel and know we are blessed beings who walk this planet for a short while. Is Kindness overrated?… HECK NO!!!!!…
