Opportunity

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

- Seneca Nation

Sometimes, in hindsight, it may seem that your prior kindness were for naught, and that in the end, they were too high a price to pay for the pains you've endured.

This is, of course, until you get a little further into the future, when the pendulum has been allowed its full swing, and the seeds you've sown have begun blooming in more gardens than you ever knew existed.

And just like the robin that is building it's nest in the tree outside my door, kindness always returns.

It's very easy to ignore an opportunity for kindness in this increasingly hectic world when we're all rushing from one task to another. But if do take that opportunity, it makes the world a better place.

When I'm driving, I see other cars on the road as other people that have someplace to go. I don't believe that's true for others though. They seem to see others as obsticles that are in their way.
We're all just trying to exist, lets take the time to recognize our fellow man. That is a good place to start.
