The Power of Unexpected Kindness

Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change”.

Bob kearrey

A word that comes to my mind on a frequent basis lately, is the word ‘support’. When we feel supported in life, it is like nothing other.

Support helps to recharge our emotional batteries when they are weak. Even a small gesture is a sign of support. I often smile when I am, for example, in an airport, and I see a Mom struggling to carry everything between the stroller, diaper bag, suitcase etc. Why I smile is that I can usually tell who has children and who does not in regards to who steps up to the plate to help Mom. Not that people who do not have children are not kind people but until you yourself experience this juggling act, you don’t realize how hard it is and you truly learn to appreciate the support or the kind gesture of a stranger that offers to help.

I for one, do my best to help out way more now than I ever did before I had my child. Whether it’s putting away a shopping cart for them while they buckle in their little ones or holding open doors, I do it when I see the opportunity. I know how these simple little things can mean so much and I know that the struggle is real :-).

And it is much deeper than merely holding a door open. It’s offering a sense of support and community to someone else and in many cases to a complete stranger which makes it even more profound and meaningful.

Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for KINDNESS and to make a difference.”

Let us choose kindness always. When we show support for even one person in our day, it truly has a ripple effect and makes a huge difference to that one person.

Why Not Encourage & Uplift?

Do you know what I would like to see MORE of in the world today?

People encouraging and uplifting each other.

I am talking about straight up encouragement and supporting our fellow human beings walking the earth as a team of souls travelling together.

I love to see this in people’s personal lives, in community, in business and in life in general.

It feels so good when someone supports you, especially when it comes to things that bring you JOY! For example if someone you know enJOYs somethings like sports, learning, working, reading, playing, using technology, taking pictures, writing, travelling, and the list goes on, support them on their journey. Encourage them to do more of what brings them JOY!

JOY and enJOYment are different for all of us. What brings you JOY may not bring me JOY but we are not here to judge each other. We are here to LOVE each other. Love is also a form of encouragement, upliftment and mutual support and respect.

Let us all encourage each other to find our JOY, to live with and through our own PASSIONS fueled by our own DESIRES that make us HAPPY and JOYOUS.

I wish you nothing but JOY, JOY, JOY, today and every day. I hope you always honor your soul and do more things everyday that make your heart smile and bring you JOY!
