What is this blog about?

There is no such thing as an expert on the topic of Life. We all have had our battles, our suffering, and our questions. Despite the uniqueness of our personal obstacles, we have endured them. We have endured them well enough to advise those behind us as to how to do the same. I have done the research on your behalf regarding the multitude of reasons why wisdom exists. My mission is to utilize the voices of the world's greatest thinkers and heroes to compose a guideline of life's wisdom so that you don't have to experience those trials alone.

If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @JoeSielski or email me at JJSielskiJr@comcast.net

(Please title your email with the word "Wisdom" so I know it will be for this blog.)

I will do my best to try and answer every question as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thanks.

A Day of Kindness

Practice kindness today.

Well, with kindness, there is no practicing.  You simply do it.  You just be kind.  The first time might feel like practice.  Maybe even the first few times.  Kindness sees where there is no kindness. 

Ok, in that case... Do kindness.  Be kindness.  Choose kindness. 

"Perfect kindness acts without thinking kindness."  [Lao Tzu]





How?

Send a letter or kind note to someone.
*
 Thank someone today.  Then explain why they have earned your gratitude.
*
 Compliment someone today... and mean it.
*
Offer money or food to someone in need of a bit.
*
Pay for a stranger's coffee.
*
Cheer on random walkers/runners in the park.
*
Use your time and your effort to work out a task on someone's behalf.  




"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."  [Aesop]

Here's the catch... and this is true for all thoughts of Wisdom:   Once you've been informed of wisdom's truths, it becomes your responsibility to retain that information.  So should you become distracted or tired or angry, and should lose awareness of your path into kindness today, remember your responsibility. 

Then do it tomorrow,  and the next day, and the following day.  Then next week.... see where this is going?   Don't stop being kind, no matter the distractions.  

You will never know how deep the roots of your influence will reach, so share love at all times.
