All it takes is some kindness

We have all seen scores of those do-good-feel-good videos, haven’t we? I recently saw this small, beautiful and very impactful video “One day” by Life Vest Inside. It’s so beautiful that it got me thinking.

All it takes is some kindness, some empathy and some putting-oneself-in-others-shoes-kind of an intention to be more sensitive and aware of the people around us, to help them, to reach out to them, to give them hope, to make them see light at the end of the darkest tunnel. It’s really that simple. Everyone around us, even those who seem to have it all, are fighting some kind of battle in their life…health, job, fear, family, education, relationships…some kind. Then on some level, we all are same, aren’t we? We all have our insecurities, we all have our fears.

And for some people these days, being rude and arrogant has become surprisingly fashionable, and being good and nice is suddenly old fashioned? Huh?

I love this video. A smile, a word of kindness, a small gesture can really have that ripple effect. It can lift someone’s spirit and it can change someone’s life for good. And what more, it benefits both the parties. The doer and the receiver both go back feeling so much better.

Be nicer, be kinder, be happier.

Here’s the video.

One day Lyrics:

sometimes I lay
under the moon
and thank God I’m breathing
then I pray
don’t take me soon
cause I am here for a reason
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
they’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day  (6 times)
it’s not about
win or lose cause
we all lose
when they feed on the souls of the innocent
blood drenched pavement
keep on moving though the waters stay raging
in this maze you can lose your way…your way
it might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you no way…no way
sometimes in my tears I drown
but I never let it get me down
so when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around
because
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
they’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day  (6 times)
one day this all will change
treat people the same
stop with the violence
down with the hate
one day we’ll all be free
and proud to be
under the same sun
singing songs of freedom like
one day  (4 times)
all my life I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been praying for
for the people to say
that we don’t wanna fight no more
they’ll be no more wars
and our children will play
one day (6 times)
oooooohhhhhhhhh
