We have all heard the saying that what you give you will get back, or you reap what you sow.
Well this applies to all of your emotions. For example if you are angry then you are going to encounter angry people or angry experiences. With this being the case if you just let your love flow then you will encounter lovely, kind people and happy experiences.
Love will come back to you ten fold!
Love can build a bridge – It’s a cliche but it is true, try it and see !
The Kindness Key.
A way to let your love flow is by being kind to others. Sounds quite easy but somewhere along the line we have sometimes forgotten to be kind to each other. It is no one’s fault it is just the way life has led us along the merry way. We have learnt to adapt to fast environments where we need everything now, so we get a bit grumpy when things don’t go our way. For example being in a shop and you have to queue and the check out person is trying their best and then they have to get one of your products checked for a price. It is easy to become inpatient or frustrated but by remembering that person is just doing a job and you don’t know their situation, can help you to let go of your frustration.
Unlocking the kindness key can feel really good for yourself and the other person. Life is so busy and rushed that all we want to do is get things done or get to a certain destination. We forget we are all in this together! People remember you if you have shown kindness and compassion and they want to help you more. For example if you have ever worked with people in a customer service environment then you will know that if someone is shouting and screaming at you then you are less inclined to help them. Whereas if someone is being nice, kind and calm then you are motivated to go that extra mile!
Kindness will come back to you, when you are kind to others.
People are People.
We are all different with our unique personalities and we can all get our buttons pushed! The key is remembering that each person you meet will have their own stuff going on in the background. There may be reasons why they are angry, difficult to be around or awkward. If you can not judge, show compassion and kindness then it has a surprising effect.
We are all doing our best with whatever life situations we are dealing with. You will obviously come across people who may be a negative influence in your life. As you continue to let your love and kindness flow then the right people will be in your life and you will find that you attract more people who act and think like you.
Treat people the way you want to be treated. Kill them with kindness !
Being kind inspires others to do the same. Have you heard of pay it forward? This is a movement that encourages people to pay forward random acts of kindness so eventually we will have a massive wave of kindness and that can only be a good thing!
Just a smile.
That’s all it takes. A smile is infectious and you can surprise people with a smile, sometimes they don’t see it coming!
We all rush around, looking at our phones being busy. Now and again give a smile to a stranger, a colleague, family member or a friend. It can go a long way and you never know you might be the only one that has shown kindness to that person today.
Smiling naturally makes you feel good so it is a win win !
Just a smile can have a massive impact, and it is free!
Give Love Everyday.
Love and kindness can be in everyday life. Once you get into the habit you start to naturally feel good, which then attracts more positive experiences. It is nice to be nice!! It gives you a warm glow!
Ten Tips to Give Love Every day:-
- Be grateful when you wake up every day ( this starts the love rolling!).
- Have a little mantra ” Today I am going to offer kindness” or words to that effect.
- Don’t get caught up in road rage! Let it go !
- Speak kindly to others regardless of their words to you.
- Do a random act of kindness ( can be opening the door to someone, making a brew for a colleague, sharing an umbrella) It doesn’t have to be big gestures.
- Smile as much and as often as possible.
- Don’t let people dump their negativity on you ! Remember they are dealing with stuff but you don’t need to be the receiver of their gripes, just wish them love and walk away or try to change the subject of conversation.
- Remember your manners. Please and thank you are often forgotten but they are a natural way to show kindness.
- Try not to judge. Everyone is doing their best.
- Treat people the way you want to be treated.
You get what you give so focus on giving love and kindness.
When someone is angry or shouting at you. Remain calm and kind ( It can take a bit of practice ) you will feel better and it will naturally calm the situation.

Take time to notice your surroundings and remember you might be giving the only kind gesture to that person today and you could have made their day. You may never know what a difference you have made.

You will receive more help when you are kind. Give it a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
