Absolutely Authentic from A to Z! Kindness

Authentically Kind...have you ever met a person that was just kind.  That person sees you, your flaws, and is kind anyways.  I have had the opportunity to meet some authentic kind people through my lifetime.  These people go out of there way to put others above themselves....always!  I have to ask myself what traits did I see in them that I could duplicate in my own life? 


*Always putting people first
*Listening without trying to speak or thinking about what I am going to say next
*Putting myself in other people's shoes
*Using kind words ALWAYS
*Having patience, even when I don't want to
*Loving others, no matter what


Being authentically kind is something that has to be practiced.  It is something that I constantly need to check myself to see if what I am thinking, and what I am doing is coming across as kind.  More then just being kind, it is the perception of the other person.  Authentic kindness means that others are put first.....

What does authentic kindness look like to you?

I agree about kindness needed to be practiced. Some days its easy and effortless. Others, well, it takes a lot of work.

Kindness goes a long way. It costs nothing, and can change an entire interaction between people.
