Kindness begins with Me! There are so many different types of people, ways of living, beliefs and more in the world. It can be easy to get stuck in one way of living and thinking. We surround ourselves with people who are like us, think like us, and live life in similar ways. This is all natural and everyone does it, but what happens when you encounter someone who is different than you?
It can be challenging to love and accept each other, but when we put aside our differences, we can see that everyone truly wants the same thing. We all want to be accepted, loved, and taken care of.
Kindness is something that can go a long way during our human experience. The more compassion, empathy, and understanding we have for other people, the more beautiful life can be.
There are moments when we all struggle. We might not be our best self or really fall short in our responsibilities or commitments. It is in those moments where we not only need to practice patience and grace with ourselves, but also need to receive it from others.
So in moments when others struggle, let us be kind, because we never know when we might be on the other side and needing kindness in return.
One thing we have really enjoyed about owning Fairbrook Grove Assisted Living Home in Mesa AZ is that we get to interact with so many different types of people. We have had so many wonderful experiences with people who have completely different lifestyles but are good people and want the best for their parents or loved one. We strive to be kind and to love everyone that comes into our home.
We invite you to be kind to yourself and to others. By doing so, we can make the world a better place, one smile, kind gesture and action at a time.
