Kindness is slowing down to show compassion and consideration and that we genuinely care about each other. I volunteer as a Rescue Ranger for the Humane Society, picking up dogs from various shelters. One day, my partner and I ran into some issues and were running late. But instead of rushing, I felt a strong urge to slow down and greet each dog we picked up with special attention. It seemed like a routine trip, but it made us ponder how much better the world would be if we did this more often. I emerged a different person and, from now on, I’m letting my heart lead.
