Simply Kind Tuesdays : Week 13 : Why not kindness?

Simply Kind Tuesday Banner

I don't know about you, but somestimes I forget to be kind.

For example, I haven't been getting my mail. Not sure what to do, I waited a week then took my sanity into my own hands and telephoned my post office.

That didn't go very well.

I'd like to tell you that I was completely reasonable and they were jerks. But alas, I lost my cool.?Rather than defend my behavior, I'll tell you that when I had a breath, a moment, a second to respond, I did remember kindness.

After listening to the supervisor say that the hardworking folks at USPS were doing their best, I realized that there was no way to back out of the situation. ?

"Ok," I said.?

And in that moment, I realized that I forgot to be kind. ?


Truth be told I really wanted to be right. ?I also didn't want to be a doormat or a push over. ?And I was deeply frustrated. (I'm expecting an important package that was mailed from California a week and a half ago.)?

Caught up in my own drama, ?I forgot about the other guy.?

Kindness is a work in process. Next time, hopefully, I'll chose kindness.

What keeps you from picking kindness sometimes?
