We are in the midst of kindness week here in Ottawa. I struggle with the idea.
It’s a nice idea really, however, doesn’t it say something about the time we are in that we need to designate a week to kindness? Have we become so centered that we have a week to remind us to be kind to each other? To smile? My goodness.
I’d like to think kindness happens randomly and constantly. I think it’s a bit much to designate a week to kindness. Do we designate a week to love? A day yes but not a week.
Has technology isolated us so much we need to be reminded to be kind? I hope not.
So I’m going with the flow. You won’t find me being kind just because it’s kindness week, you’ll find me being kind because I want to.
