Have courage and always be kind. Although there may be times when it is difficult to follow the path of kindness, especially in situations where someone may have hurt you or wronged you in one way or the other. Regardless of the circumstance, however, it is always best to follow the path of kindness, for you really have nothing to lose but much to gain. The energy you put out into the world is what you will receive back in return. Thus, when you live your life with courage and kindness, you will attract that same positive energy into your life, and life will be good to you.
So what does it mean to have courage and be kind?
1. Nobody should have the ability to take away your power.
Do not allow others to make you feel unworthy or like you are a bad person, no matter how cruel they may be at your expense. You can allow other people to influence your self-perception or refuse to allow such negativity to adversely affect you. Do not let anyone tell you that you are not who you say you are. All this you can do without stooping to the other person’s level of negativity; you can stand your ground whilst being kind always in your words and actions.

2. No matter how bad things get, never lose sight of who you are.
You may find yourself in difficult situations or places from time to time, but you do not have to allow these experiences to define who you are. Have courage and be kind in every situation. Never allow your current circumstances to bring you down, no matter how bad they appear. Stay true to yourself and be kind always; you will attract more positivity into your life, for this too shall pass. Also, do not forget that it is cool to be kind, despite any contrary perception anyone else may have.
3. Whatever the occasion, there is always something to sing about.
Even when things are difficult in one’s life, this does not imply that all hope is lost. Maintain your positive attitude, and yes, singing can be very beneficial. So have courage and be kind irrespective of what you may be going through. Focus on the light at the end of the tunnel, on the things that are going right in your life, and with time everything will be as it should be. You will be just fine, so hang in there; you got this.

4. There is nothing wrong with believing in a little magic now and then.
Even if there is no such thing as a fairy godmother who transforms pumpkins into carriages or mice into horses, there are seemingly unexplainable good things that happen in life now and again. When life blesses you with these good things, there is no need to stress yourself trying to figure out how and why. Rather just be grateful for your good fortune in life, enjoy it in silence whilst showing kindness to others. This is a good way to say thank you for your blessings.
Furthermore, it is noteworthy that nothing in life has any meaning but the meaning you choose to attach to it. So perhaps the universe, a higher power, etc., is rewarding you for your kindness to those who have come your way. So as aforementioned, be grateful, and enjoy your blessings whilst always being kind to others.
5. You get back what you put in; in other words, you reap what you sow.
The energy or vibes you put into the world, good or bad, is what you get back in return. Therefore, as long as you are being good to others and kind always, good things will happen to you as well. If you say and do hurtful things to people, you will experience the same or similar treatment from others. That is all there is to it. So have courage, be kind always irrespective of what life may bring your way, and reap the benefits of staying positive. This may not be easy, but it is worth it.
Forgiveness should be practised.
Grudges, anger and a desire for vengeance fester in the soul of the person who harbours them. If a person has negative thoughts and feels and is unable to let go of them, that person would be unable to live out the rest of their life in a happy and fulling way. As that person would have those negative thoughts and feelings weighing them down.
Forgiveness can be easier said than done, especially considering the gravity of the hurt that may have been caused. However, it is in the best interest of the person offended to forgive and continue to show kindness than to hold on to negative thoughts and feelings caused by the wrong done to them.
So it is best to work on letting go and forgiving people who offend you, even in situations where the offending party does not apologise or acknowledge their wrongdoing. Forgive them anyway for your good or benefit. Have courage and be kind to them regardless of how they are to you. Hard as it may be, this is very doable and will set you free to live a happy and fulfilling life.
It is possible to live happily ever after.
Yes, it is possible to live happily ever after but necessarily with a princess or prince charming as it goes in the stories and movies. Living happily ever should originate from within. When you live your life courageously and with kindness towards others, yourself and animals, without holding grudges, you are free to live happily every day of your life. Focusing more on the things that bring you joy and happiness. Living your life with grace and dignity, never compromising on what feels right to you, and having faith in your own abilities are some of the vital keys to living a joyful life.
