Hani generously gave his time and expertise in graphics to help me create a conference presentation and format some of my dissertation work. Amidst his busy schedule, he made the time to care, to be kind. When I see Hani (which is maybe a couple times a year if I'm lucky), a sense of warmth and gratitude is experienced through the rightful association of Hani with kindness.
Positive emotions of gratitude and kindness can be experienced across relational domains (work/school/social/familial/societal). We can think of supervisors, teachers, friends, groups and organizations we are a part of or learn about in which kindness is embodied. We can also schedule acts of kindness into our days and experience how our moments of positive emotion and days of gratitude heighten our acuity to all that is good and right in our world.
To kindness...to gratitude...to life!
