The Importance of Saying Thank You and Being Kind

Being kind to one another is very important for the health of the mind, and thus for our heart, gastrointestinal tract and our general immune system. Let us not forget that being grateful comes for what we receive either by intent, gift or hard work comes with blessings and for that we should be thankful.

In these “modern” times some people think that because they go to the market and buy things they need this gives them the right to be served and attended without saying THANK YOU. This could not be further from the truth.

Look at my beautiful plants that I grow. I go to them everyday, I water them and feed them with appropriate fertilizers and compost. Then I say thank you to all of them for giving me beauty, for feeding me (I also grow tons of vegetables and fruit trees), for the wonderful smell coming from their petals and fruits. I thank the plants for the bees and butterflies that come to my yard every year because of them. We have a fantastic relantionshinship, my plants and I

Therefore, in every aspect of life is very important to say thank you. Whether you go to the market or you go to your backyard. Let us not forget kindness.

  1. I agree 100% with this post, when a person says Thank You, even though I am just doing my job, it feels great. I also love it when a stranger is polite to me in public, it gives me hope in humanity.


  2. International Kindness Day was on Tuesday – if only we could be kind to people every day of the year, not just on special occasions like Christmas when we are full of joy and wish to share that joy with others. You are so right on the money with this post Martha.
