It’s Random Acts of Kindness Week! Check out Lameeze Davids’ story. She says, “I live in South Africa, and we have this Zulu word, “ubuntu”, which is basically all about human kindness. The word “ubuntu” is about seeing yourself in your community, in others. I am because we are. It’s about smiling at strangers as you pass them, it’s about sharing your food, and it’s about helping others in need. It’s one of my favorite philosophies because what I take from it is that when I am kind to someone, I need nothing in return. My kindness to others is a kindness to myself.”
Let’s all try to embody UBUNTU, this week and always.
“People often ask me what is the most effective technique for transforming their life. It is a little embarrassing that after years and years of research and experimentation, I have to say that the best answer is–just be a little kinder.” –Aldous Huxley
