Bit of Happy #51: Kind Words and Kind Deeds

23 Nov

“Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden,
And keep out the weeds,
Fill it with sunshine,
Kind words and kind deeds.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If this quote got any happier, I think it would burst! But that’s why I love it so much. It encourages us to be loving and caring. It teaches us the importance of having compassion for ourselves and others. Each time I read this quote, I picture the most beautiful garden I can imagine. Every day, I try to carry that garden within myself wherever I go and share it with all I meet.

Hopefully it inspires you to do the same!
