July- Kindness

For many years, I have thought about the concept, how can you be kind to people? What does this mean and how can each person do one thing that is nice and supportive to someone else?


I want to help others find the best in themselves and show them to get out of their heads and feel good about their lives. I think it’s important for people to be happy, connected, joyful and free. I believe that if you do things for others, it really helps you as well. It takes you out of your head and into giving. When you send love out to the world it comes back to you. 


A few years ago around Christmas, my husband Steve and I came up with a challenge, it was to do one nice thing a day - out of the ordinary for someone. We did this for the 21 days of Christmas. It was so much fun. The people that participated got so much out of it. It was good for everyone. How can you take this concept and use it one day a week in your life? Is this something that you’d be willing to do. If so, I challenge you to do this. 


The other day we read and inspiring story on the “GoodNews Network” the story was about a man in his 60’s who went out to the corner and wrote a sign that said something like this "I have a home and a car and a job. Do you need a few bucks for some coffee?". 


Talk about inspiration- I am inspired by this man. 


What can you do today to be kind to another? How are you going to show up? 



Today I vow to be kind to everyone I come in contact with and I will try to make their day a little sweeter. 



Have a wonderful weekend.
