Words for walking – Kind.

I have chosen 26 words to consider as I walk 26 laps during my workout.

Today’s word is kind. Kindness is mostly about the tongue and what it does to people and its owner. I read a quote from Mother Theresa – she said, “kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” The writer of Proverbs 12:25 writes, “An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.” I need to speak kind words to those I interact with, thinking before I speak, keeping my tongue in check. Even more so, I need to think kind thoughts because the tongue only goes where the mind has already traveled.

I need to be kinder.
