As I continue to ponder the Kindness Paradigm I wonder sometimes how to stimulate in others the same desire that I have, that one about living in a kinder, gentler world. Not so much because others don’t want people to be kind to them but because it requires a shift on their part to being kinder and gentler.
A friend of mine neatly sums up the answer when she says, “It feels nice to be nice.”
I suspect people will pick it up all on their own when they feel the benefit of nice.
