“Have Courage and Be Kind” Cinderella Movie
“Always Stay Humble and Kind” Tim McGraw
Isn’t it funny how no matter how grown up we may be kindness always matters. It matters every single day regardless of your age, where you live, how you live. You can literally make someone’s day by pausing and acting first with kindness.
When I was invited to participate with Cents of Style’s Fashion Friday to share a story I knew the shirt I wanted to highlight was this Be Kind shirt. In my life and especially my time in this online world I’ve been on the receiving end of both kindness and cruelty. I’ve had complete strangers and friends brighten my day by showing kindness, compassion, love, companionship. I’ve also had strangers and even friends use the world of social media to voice their unkind thoughts and feelings toward me or something I’ve created/done and the damage that can do to someone’s heart and spirit is so bad, it takes just seconds and can’t always be undone. Don’t do it, don’t give into the thought that because you’re just posting it online it isn’t the same as saying it to someone’s face. It is exactly the same thing only more cowardly. Even if you WOULD say it to someone’s face (so you say) if it isn’t kind and it doesn’t do good why would you?
Remember we’re all people doing the best we can every single day. Be kind, you have no idea what others may be going through, and as I’ve been learning recently something that may be easy for you may be a major struggle for someone else, don’t minimize it, don’t make yourself feel better by making someone else feel bad.
It’s the start of a new year, use this year to be kind to the people going through this ride called life with you, we’ll all be better for it. In 2017 don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk!
My thoughts on this darling shirt. I love the quality, it’s so soft and the print is nice and dark. I feel like they run slightly large. You can buy this exact shirt and see all the other inspirational tees here. You can also save 50% on the Fashion Friday t-shirts using code INSPIRE17!
