In other words, like a duck let the trivial  roll off your back and swim away.

What matters? Kindness to all.

Current research agrees with the sages of the ages. If you want the good life, treat others as you want to be treated. Karma means at the most basic level your kindness will be rewarded, if only by the good feelings you garner for doing the right thing.

Research also notes people are driven by a Tit for Tat mentality.  If people treat you kind, you are 99.9% likely to return their kindness. Same when you are mean.

The trick, of course,  is to return meanness with kindness. That generally works well and when it does not work,  you have learned an important lesson.

Thank you for all you do

I am resuming efforts to post Daily, but in doing so, will try to limit the posts to this size, using mainly Poster Coaches, Jokes,

My PDF eBook Cross-Train Your Brain is still free and will remain so until I finish the next one, Defang Fear In All Its Disguises. So if you have not downloaded it yet, do so now. It will soon cost a pretty penny.


This post was not inspired by the WordPress Daily Prompt “Locked.” However, do not keep your kindness locked away.
