Is it easy to be kind?
For me it is. For some people it may not be so easy. Yup, it’s easy for me.

On your hardest day, what things do you do to be kind? Or do you just let it all go?What do I do when I’m struggling?

As soon as I notice that I’m not having a great day. I work harder at being kind. I become more reflective. I’m a teacher and I’ll change activities based on this. On a hard day I might have quiet activities for the kids and for me. If it’s a social event that I’m to attend, I just stay home.

What’s the kindest thing that’s happened to you lately?
This week I got out of my car and went into the building and I left my car door open. My co-worker said, “you didn’t mean to leave the door open, did you?” I hadn’t realized that I left it open and was happy that she went ahead and closed it for me.
