Winning with Kindness

In a world of virtual contact, communication and anonymous cities and neighborhoods, it’s easy to lose touch with what’s really important. It’s easy to lose touch with others, and when they (or we) go through difficulties, the distance can seem insurmountable.  We may live in a global village, but at the heart of all of us is a longing for relationships, for friendships, for connecting with other humans on a deeper level than superficial social politeness.  Here’s a woman who overcame her own depression by focusing on others, and it’s amazing to see how much it has snowballed since that one act of kindness to a stranger.  Click on the photo below to watch the story unfold.

    • I couldn’t agree more. So often people speak out negative things quickly, while they are more hesitant with compliments. I think it needs to be the other way around!
