Consistent Acts of KindnessWednesday, December 16, 2015
Consistent acts of kindness trump random acts of kindness. When you dig beyond the surface, what "random acts of kindness" really means is "I'm okay with being selfish most of the time, but I'm randomly going to be nice and then go back to focusing on myself." Loving randomly rather than consistently is selfish. It is still a "me first" attitude.
Random acts of kindness are the easy out. Consistent acts of kindness are tough because they require choosing to be selfless over selfish on an ongoing basis. If I've learned anything in life it's that the tougher route is almost always the better route and the one worth taking.
