This is my house.

I have been a silent observer/fan/reader of Jenny Lawson for quite some time – and this post is absolutely spot on. If you’ve never heard of The Bloggess herself, or read her words – this is the perfect starting point.
I love it, I love it, I love it.


The Bloggess

The greatest gift in the world is to grant a kindness to another. The amazing thing though is that the aforementioned gift is one you give yourself. It may be a small thing. Leaving a flower for the tired woman at the coffee shop. Telling a stranger that they have such kind eyes. Listening happily to a story told by an elderly friend or relative who has told you the same story a million times. Nodding in solidarity even when you don’t completely understand. Letting a friend or a stranger yell hurtful things at you because you hope it will hep them let go of a small part of that anger…that it will open up room in them for the greater things that they deserve.

This is the way the world goes. Small, mean acts affect the next person who in turn amplify that anger or sadness and take it out on others who suffer…

  1. Like the title This is my house
    Kindness to another is a great gift to give . Like sharing my lunch with a stranger sitting on a bus stop bench at 3:00 am and too listen to her talk about life, and each day at 3:00 am I bring my lunch out to the bus stop bench and lite up a smoke and she will ask me about my life and what we having for lunch today that’s the kindness gift she had to give me just asking me about my life,
    Showing Kindness to another’s is part of my life,
