I know I keep banging on about being kind to each other, I tell it to the kids all the time, for all the good it does! I’m reading a follow up to one of my favourite books – Wonder, The Julian Chapter, and although I’m not very far into it, one line in it triggered something in me and I’ve been thinking about it all day. Something I really strongly believe to be true and I wish I’d written myself.
There’s no rule book that tells you how to act in every given situation in life, you know? So what I always say is that it’s always better to err on the side of kindness. That’s the secret. If you don’t know what to do, just be kind. You can’t go wrong.
How beautiful is that? I feel a little bit like a hippy (feel the love, man) and I’m sure some people will go ‘oh for gods sake – lame!’. I’m not preaching or anything, I just think it’s lovely and wanted to share.
