The saying, “kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give” has some pretty major truth power to it. Being kind doesn't mean extravagant displays of generosity – we can't all be Oprah! But, that's exactly the beauty of kindness. More often than not, kindness is showcased in modest, subtle acts that undoubtedly have an enormous ripple effect on other people's mood and comfort (and ability to generate kindness to others, too).
