Kill 'em with Kindness

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. The third is to be kind.
- Henry James

Oneof my mother's favourite mottos is, "Kill 'em with kindness".  She firmly believes that you don't have to play the macho game that involves tearing people down to get places in this world.  It serves her well. She is a senior General Manager in a Fortune 500 company, loved and lauded by most who know her.

Its something I wish I was better at. Charm and disarm has never been my way. In fact, my strength is the sarcastic comeback (and hiding real emotion with witty banter, but more about that some other time). I am unafraid of an argument and have a tendency to put my foot in things I shouldn't.  Fiery is often used to describe my fighting style...

Well, when your personality fails you, what do you do?  Start somewhere!  In my case, it was this apron that could have no other meaning.

I think its a good first step.  Because kindness, like charity, begins at home.
