How many of us take the time to look for ways to be kind to one another? Since adding Ellen DeGeneres to my morning ritual, it has become glaringly apparent, that today I need to get out there and find more ways to be kind. Most people equate being kind with giving out money. Unfortunately in today’s world a lot of us just don’t have money to give away, but to be kind doesn’t have to be about money.
To be kind is to simply be aware of the people around you. Does someone in your office need a hug or an uplifting word today? If so, give them what they need. Does an elderly lady in the grocery store need help reaching something that is out of reach for her? If so, step up with a smile and help out. There are so many ways we can spread kindness. If you are shy or feel awkward about approaching people, you can always give them a silent blessing, a silent hug, a smile.
I am making it my mission to find someone, anyone to be kind to wherever I go this weekend. I don’t have a lot in the way of money, but I will be carrying around a few extra $10 bills this weekend to, maybe pay for someone’s morning coffee. Or maybe I’ll buy a bouquet of flowers and knock on a random door and give them away. I don’t know what I am going to do just yet, but I am going to have fun with this one.
I would like to make kindness one of my missions in life. I am ready to make a difference. I am ready to spread a little joy in hopes that even the tiniest act of kindness will be passed on to someone else. It’s time that we all make a commitment to create a chain of kindness across the world.
If you find the urge to be a part of this chain of kindness please let me know what idea’s you have to spread love and compassion around the world. Please stop by my Facebook page and tell me what your planning or how you have raised someone up or maybe how someone has raised you up. I am excited about the possibilities.
That been said, I am off to get on with my day. May you all have a blessed and safe weekend.
With much Love and Light
