Be like a pineapple. Stand tall. Wear a crown. Be sweet on the inside.

The strongest people are the ones who are still kind after the world tore them apart.

It is not always possible to know why people act the way they do, but I can guarantee that you will feel better if you give people the benefit of the doubt more often than not. When in doubt, be kind. It doesn’t cost anything to be kind.

People don’t always say I love you. Sometimes it sounds like: Be safe. Did you eat? Call me when you get home. I made you this.

The world is already so full of conflict. If we want to create more peace in the world, we have to choose not to take things personally and instead respond with understanding, compassion, connection, and peace.

It wasn’t the trauma that made you strong, kinder, and more compassionate. It’s how you handled it. That credit is yours.

What is the difference between ‘I like you’ and ‘I love you?’ Beautifully answered by the Buddha: ‘When you like a flower, you just pluck it; when you love a flower, you water it daily.’ The one who understands this, understands life.

Maybe your life purpose isn’t supposed to be a thrill-seeking narrative. What if you’re meant to be the sunshine to someone’s stormy day? Or the voice of clarity to a frantic mind? You don’t have to be a superhero to save the world.

You should always tell people how important they are to you. Always.

You have no idea how long something you say can stay inside someone’s mind.

You have no idea how many people there are in the world whose day could be made and their life changed for the better if someone would just look them in the eye, smile, and say, ‘Hello.’

Stay kind. It makes you beautiful.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’

Despite all the bad days and mean people, I still believe in good days and kind people. Plus, there are always dogs.

If you have nothing but a caring family, believe me, you are rich.

Kindness: Loaning someone your strength instead of reminding them of their weakness.

Tell people what you love about them. Less criticism, more compliments.

Do what you can, when you can, with as much love and honesty as you can, and when you can’t, rest.

Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest yet most incredible things you can ever hear.

Be kind to one another. Say a word or two of encouragement. You never know who may need those gentle reminders more than anything today.
