“Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.”

~ Unknown

Kindness is good for you.

A simple smile, a kind word, a thoughtful gesture can go a long way to making someone’s day. It will make you feel better too knowing you’re making a positive difference for those around you.

Patience is good too. I know it’s not always easy to be polite when someone has rubbed you the wrong way. So when kindness isn’t in the cards, instead of meeting rudeness with rudeness, be silent. It’s an energizing way to make your point without being nasty about it. Nice!

I recently volunteered my time to present for staff at the Calgary Zoo. They were hard hit by the June floods and have been working very hard to restore order for the zoo animals AND find balance in their own lives.

We can all help in our own small ways, so if you are feeling the ‘animal love’ here’s a link where you can make your own donation to zoo relief efforts. Every donation of every size will help! http://www.calgaryzoo.com/support-us/donate-now
