This week, in honour of ESMÉ Official KINDNESS Month, I set out for/in kindness. I saw kindness everywhere; in slobbery dogs, open doors and delicious friends. But then…. I went to a will-not-be-named coffee shop on Tuesday and met up with the grump behind the counter. I thought I would blast kindness at him but actually I pretended it was kindness; it may have rhymed more with Truck-Ewe-Ness, though I fake smiled.
I left there mad and my coffee seemed to suck and I was about to give up on the whole thing (and blame it all on him) because apparently Mr. Grumpy-Pants did not get the memo. I remembered that kindness is kind and I could kindly leave him with his grump and enjoy my coffee and me. I chose kindness.
There is power in kindness. Kindness thrives. Kindness nurtures. Kindness is kind.
April is ESMÉ Official KINDNESS Month.
Your kind of beautiful. ESMÉ BEAUTIFUL
PS We have coffee, a very kind coffee xoxo
