Kindness…Just Because

Random Acts of Kindness Day was on February 17th. I love the concept of this, having an intention to do good for someone else, but I wish that there was a little more of this being done every day by everyone.

Realistically, having a designated day to be kind to someone is a really great thing, especially in this busy, chaotic world where we all have so much going on.

However, I personally believe that the only way to heal this messed up world is to

spread more kindness every day

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” - Lao Tzu

On that note, here are some kindness ideas that I’ve compiled and hope to act on every day for the rest of year:

More Kind Words

Compliments, Praise, Empowerment, Cheers, Admiration, Congratulations, Tributes, Inspiration, Encouragement, Greetings.

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

- Mother Theresa

 

More Kind Actions 

Giving, Politeness, Equity, Paying It Forward, Affection, Gifting, Smiling, Laughing.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

- Aesop

More Kind Values

Trust, Gratitude, Equality, Forgiveness, Patience, Compassion, Empathy, Generosity, Love, Honesty.

“Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.” - Ellen DeGeneres

Why save kindness for a rainy day...join me in any and/or all of these Random Acts of Kindness every day (or as much as possible) this year!
