Living in the Now, Choosing in the Now to be Kind

I was awake in the night,
reviewing my moment-to-moment
decisions of the day before

I recognized some choices that I
made were “right”

Were they kind? No.

Every time I miss an
opportunity to be kind,
I create the potential
for future regret.

These days, I ask not only
“what is the right thing?” but
“can i do the right thing in a kind way?”
If I can’t, I leave it to the one who can.
God sends messengers.

Just because the message is needed,
that doesn’t mean I’m the one to give it.

my own sense of having a choice
to be kind and instead, utilizing the
choice to be right and “tell the truth”
has caused torture in my mind before.

I know how to
avoid that feeling ….

It is better to choose kindness
Than to look back and wish I
had been kind. It is better to say nothing
than to say the right, unkind thing.

“In the end,
only kindness matters.”
