Today is world kindness day and here are two ideas for you for today.
#1 – Be Kind to Yourself! ♥♥♥
The world needs more kindness right here and right now and it starts in this moment. The first thing to do, is to be kind to yourself. Do whatever you need to do to show yourself kindness right now.
Tell yourself that you love yourself, you forgive yourself, you appreciate yourself, you adore yourself, you have compassion for yourself, or whatever comes to mind that is kind. Just do it!
It is very, very important for us to activate the vibration of kindness within ourselves because it not only helps us but it helps and heals the entire planet and all of the beautiful people who are our brothers and sisters.
And remember the beautiful quote from the late Ram Dass, “We are all just walking each other home”. So let’s walk in kindness I say. 🙂
#2 – Reach Out & Be Kind to Someone Else! ♥♥♥
Right now reach out to someone and show them an act of kindness. Send them a message, make a phone call, or give someone a hug and tell them you love them. It does not matter what act of kindness you do, just do something.
I often think of the stories you hear where one small act of kindness changed someone’s day or even sometimes saved their life! Whether it was a random smile from a stranger of someone helping someone at a time of need. It all counts and every act of kindness is a HUGE act of kindness.
So go right now and don’t wait another second .... go and do that act of kindness to brighten someone’s day. It will affect both you and them.
And may we remember today and everyday moving forward that every act of kindness is indeed a HUGE act of kindness.
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.
I am so trying to be more compassionate with myself. What about you? Are you able to enJOY the version of you right now? Or do you struggle with longing for a former version of yourself or a future version of you?
What if we just stopped this madness and got ok with us right now? I was chatting with my hair dresser the other day and was mentioning that I had gained weight and she had mentioned she had lost some. I shared with her how I was deciding to be okay with the fact that I had gained weight because I know that at the end of my life I will absolutely think that I wish I hadn’t wasted so much of my life worrying or beating myself up. I am sure I would wish I had used those precious moments of life to be happy rather than having negative feelings about myself. She agreed. 🙂
And we all go through these things. We gain, we lose, we change habits, we fall off of our tracks, we get back on, etc. etc. This applies to anything in our life. Healthy habits, positive thinking, working out, being kind to ourselves or not….. the cycle just continues…. We all go up and down in these cycles but really we are always just doing the best we can at the time we are doing it.
What if we just STOPPED? Stopped the madness of judging ourselves and others and turned to JOY and acceptance? What is we turned to Compassion and Kindness for self and others?
WOW, I think it would make a huge difference. Don’t you? 🙂
I wish whoever is reading this, personal peace, self-love, kindness and most of all lots of LOVE!
This morning a friend and I were having a telephone conversation. It came around to the topic of how important appreciation is. We were actually discussing business and life.
Somehow we ended up talking about the simple acts of kindness that make a huge difference. My friend, Teresa, mentioned that she often offers solicitors that come to her door, in the hot summer, water, or a snack. She mentioned one particular time when she gave one solicitor a few Kind bars and a bottle of water. He was so happy he didn’t even care that she didn’t want what he was selling. lol 🙂
But all joking aside, the small acts of kindness DOmake the biggest difference. I started talking about things such as offering food or drinks to the people that come to your home to service or repair your home’s ailments, giving up your seat on public transit, or a smile from a random stranger when you need it most . There are so many small acts of kindness that do make a huge difference.
I said you can give someone a million dollars and think that is a huge deal but sometimes just that smile that you need on a day when you feel you can’t go on anymore is an even bigger deal! That random smile could really save a life.
We both started to cry in this conversation and that is when I really knew how big of a deal small, random acts of kindness are.
Make you find it in your heart today to both give and receive kindness……. ❤ ❤ ❤
I love this kindness quote. It is so good to be reminded that we all struggle and therefore we do not struggle alone. This quote reminds me to not only offer kindness to myself and others but to also offer compassion and understanding.
We can never give or receive too much kindness. The sky is the limit!
Here are some kindness quotes to enJOY and to remind us of how powerful kindness can be.
Being kind to even one person can change a life. There are countless true stories of the power of even a random smile from a stranger that when received on a dark day or moment in a life, can be the difference between life and death. Kindness is THAT POWERFUL!
