I was visiting my friend Duana in the hospital last week, and she told me this latest hospital stay had forced her to cancel a visit with a former colleague. She was truly disappointed: The scheduled visit was important to her -- it was part of her plan to "do something nice for someone every single day."
Consider that. Her objective -- as she fights invasive breast cancer and related issues -- isn't to replace random acts of kindness. Her objective is to supplement those with planned actions.
Duana has been my mentor for years. This week, let her be yours. Bring kindness fully forward in your consciousness. Say something nice in the grocery check-out line. Let that car pass you. Grin at someone on the elevator.
My guess is, nice runs in circles.
