Did you see the interview with Olympic Swimmer Missy Franklin after she won Gold? She made a statement that was certainly out of the ordinary for most winners. She said “Her parents taught her to be kind to everyone.”
Do you ever think about being more kind? I have grown very tired of the vitriol we are all forced to endure. This week has been particularly bad with the hate messages aimed at the “Eat More Chikin” company.
The Social Media has been full of hate. I am thinking it is time for this oldster to stop reading Facebook updates.
However, before I do I want to challenge you to “Be Kind”.
I happen to live with the kindest person I have ever met. My husband is kind to babies, dogs, cats, elderly, teenagers, liberals, conservatives, moderates and any other living thing including trees. (And of course to Me!)
I challenge you to “BE KIND”! I am going to work on it.
And while you are at it, BE KIND to your body.
If you have high blood sugar, stop eating naked carbohydrates.
If you have high blood pressure, stop eating salt and salty foods.
If you have high cholesterol, stop eating junk food.
I guess you can be hateful to your friends and relatives. It is possible (but not always easy) to get new ones.
But, if you are hateful to your own body, you are in big trouble.
So, the next time you see me running around in my Wonder Dietitian Cape remind me to “Be Kind.”
P.S. I’ve decided to not send a rattlesnake to you, since I have decided to be kind.
