The old-English root word for kindness is “ge-cynde”. Looks odd, but imagine that we lose the “ge” part as happened a few centuries later and are left with the “cynde”. Think of the “c” sound as in car. Now it makes sense. Cynde. Kind.
Why is this important? Cynde, in the old-English usage, means natural, inborn or innate.
Kindness is a natural part of being human, and we’re born with it. Nothing special. All natural.
Be natural, be kind. This week #RandomActsofKindness Week 2017, and everyday.
What does kind mean to you?
