“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

Through the years I've lived, I've come to distinguish absolutely between pain observed and pain shared. Pain observed is journalistic pain. It’s diplomatic pain. It’s television pain, over as soon as you switch off your beastly set. Those who watch suffering and do nothing about it are just a little better than those who inflict it. They are the bad Samaritans. Celebrate the love of Christ and his Sacrifice by showing kindness today and every day. If you run out of poor people, or people in pain, just post a word in our comments section here or find me/us and we’ll guide you to many more people in need of a tiny tweeny bit of kindness.
Be kind. Kindness is a virtue characterised by good and affectionate behaviour, pleasant temperament, care and compassion for other people. Aristotle in some writings defined it as "helpfulness towards someone in need, not in return for anything, nor for the advantage of the helper himself, but for that of the person helped.” Kindness profoundly affects the lives of the people we come across daily and it feels good. I have found out for myself that being kind to others is really a way to be kind to one-self.
Show your love for God by being kind to one person every day. Kindness inspires kindness.
