Sweetness

 

Of all the lovely qualities you can posses, sweetness is the most universally moving one. A sweet smile draws others closer to you and a sweet nature will help you be a blessing and a treasure to the world. The secret of sweetness is that inner sweetness and outer sweetness draw upon each other.

It is fairly easy to say something kind once in a while, and most of us succeed in this. More difficult is holding your tongue when you feel the urge to say something unkind. This requires a lot of discipline, as we all get cross once in a while. To keep yourself from saying hurtful things when annoyed and regretting it later, much discipline is needed. You can practice this by keeping a calm mind in everyday life. Whatever fault you still notice in others, make a habit of correcting it in yourself, if needed. We need to work on ourselves first, it is not our task to improve others unless they ask for guidance. If your date has bad table manners, take the opportunity to polish your own.  If your mother wears clothing two sizes too small, check if your own wardrobe could be more flattering. If a girl on the train is frowning, relax your own forehead. Who is the most important person to help transform and on whom will your work be most succesful? You, and you.

Once you have achieved this, you can improve further by making it a habit to look at the positive behaviours of a person. This will help you appreciate him more. What is even better is that it will give you a soft, sweet expression that make up cannot create. The look of sweetness says more than a thousand kind words. Bless the world with it whenever you can.

    Thanks for this. Really great advice! I have been working on this somewhat by remembering people aren’t perfect (myself included) and thinking through my opinion before expressing it – in fact I usually choose to remain quiet as a result! I will def keep this in mind

  4. Thank you for the compliments ladies !
