The 13th November every year is “World Kindness Day”. Our friend and Advocate at the Scottish Bar Stephen O’Rourke (kindly!) shared this thoughts on the importance of human kindness.
“When someone shows us kindness, particularly a stranger, it’s like receiving an unexpected gift. The world seems brighter for a moment: but, like all acts of giving, it needs constant renewal or the generous spirit fades.”
What kind thing have you done recently? Or what unexpected gift of kindness as someone showed you?
For me it was just someone taking a bit of time of their own busy day to check that I was okay and give me a hug. It really made all the difference.
