Sometimes the universe sends messages — repeatedly — just in case I didn’t hear it the first time.
First message: when looking for a document from some time ago, I came upon this quote that I had not read in a few years, attributed to Henri Frederic Amiel:
Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love; make haste to be kind.
This is one of those messages that can seem merely a seasonal sentiment during this time of year. But, shouldn’t we think of this throughout the year? Be swift to love. Make haste to be kind. Gladden hearts. I think that is beautiful.
Second message: This morning I saw this on a friend’s Facebook page:
I encourage you to watch it before reading further. It should make you smile. Swiftly, with haste: love and kindness.
Every.Single.Day. That can’t be too hard, can it?
