Goodness is not a difficult concept. Synonyms of Goodness can help us understand it. Friendliness. Generosity. Good will. Grace. Graciousness. Honesty. Integrity. Kindness. Mercy. Morality. Righteousness. Superiority. Virtue. Benevolence. Honor. Humaneness. Nourishment. Quality. Uprightness. Wholesomeness. Ethicality.
Aren’t those great ways to think about goodness. I’m not talking about foods’ goodness, but the potential goodness of human beings. If we want to change the world or our little corner of the world, goodness is going to be the key. Shari Arison, an American-born Israeli businesswoman and philanthropist, says, “It's important to think good, speak good, and do good. If we want to see positive change in the world, then we need to connect to goodness.”
Connect to Goodness. Wow! How inspirational. I see this as recognizing the goodness in others, honoring the goodness in others, and exhibit goodness to others. So much in the news today does not show the good in this world. It shows the negative; it tells us of all the bad that has occurred. I honestly believe we have to stop watching the news sometimes so that we can remember that there is still good in the world. So take a break from all of the bad and “Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”(― Desmond Tutu)
Little by little, we can change the world.
