Kindness can often be mistaken for weakness; one’s gentle disposition taken for insecurity, in today’s loud world of proclamations, promotions and self-advancement. The need to be noticed becomes compulsive, the thirst for attention – deafening.
What if one would rather be remembered for his or her elegance, grace, politeness or modesty? Are these qualities so out of fashion nowadays that the crowd can’t recognize or identify with them and, hence, feels threatened?
One doesn’t have to get noticed in order to be remembered. A memorable presence is often subtle, such that leaves us with a feeling, a sensation, an effect.
May you be blessed this season with an unforgettable experience. May you be in peace and quiet of the mind and remember someone gentle and special in your life. May you be an act of kindness and may you be remembered.
