Kindness is Classy – Back to the Basics

When did the world become such a dark and mean place? When was tearing each other apart something “cool” to do? The last few months I feel like God has been speaking to me about love and kindness. In today’s world you have so many people who hide behind computer screens, and just say hurtful and mean things.

I have seen it time and time again, you have so many mommy wars, and women who are tearing each other apart because you don’t look the way they would like you to, because you choose to give formula to your child, or you stepped outside the box. The list goes on and on…

Houston lifestyle blogger Uptown with Elly Brown shares why Kindness is classy, and why we need to learn to love each other MORE.

Bullying is at an all-time high. You have internet websites like “Get Off My Internet” (which I refuse to give them my pageview and get on their website) who tear people apart. I mean who even has the time for this, and how do they sleep at night?

This year God has been speaking heavily on my heart to spread his love, to be kind and not only to those who I can get something in return. But to spread love, joy, and to be a light in this very dark world.

I want to encourage you to have “Be Kind” on your New Years resolution. To smile and to say hi to a stranger, to get off your phone at the check out line and to actually talk to the cashier.

When someone asks how you are doing look them in the eye, and ask them how they are doing. But don’t ask and not listen, or keep walking.  Houston fashion blogger Uptown with Elly Brown wears a faux leather skirt with Valentino stud dupes

Let’s not partake in gossip, but rather embrace what makes each and every one different. To see someone the way God sees them, to love how God loves, and to withhold nothing back…

Because at the end of the day, Kindness is classy!

    Yep! Couldn’t have said it better myself! 🙂 we all need to be a little kinder, a little more present and tolerable of others’ differences/choices 🙂

      yes! We do, if we all cared to be a little bit more present and tolerable, this world would be a better place!
