I apologize for not writing in this blog more often, I don’t want to just write about anything. I want this to be meaningful to the few that might read it. In case you did not know…Today is World Kindness day – YUP…there is literally a day for everything now! I don’t need a special day to be kind, and honestly should any of us? Of course, the answer is NO!
This just seems to be what we do now! If we don’t see it on the calendar, it doesn’t exist. We are living in crazy times, hate and cruelty seem to make the headlines more than anything else, and it is so hard to not listen. It is all so toxic and quite honestly, it is exhausting! I know, I try not to think about all of the crazy, awful situations that families are dealing with right now. I am currently taking a class at MCLA called Children’s Legal Rights, and have learned so much about the history of how we protect people, or
not. So many are suffering from some sort of trauma in their lives and does this make us more resilient or less? I don’t know anymore. Unfortunately, the outside buzz permeates our brains, our bodies and our hearts.
So here is my thought for the 2019 World Kindness day…. Be kind every day, help someone who may need it. We are all busy, but take a moment and hold the door open for the person behind you, Say thank you and mean it. Smile at someone! Drop a small donation in the bucket or box if you can, whatever you can do to make our world safer and supportive. Please take a moment and be a kind role model for your child, they are looking to you for support and feeling your feelings. Children are so intuitive! Think about all of the great things in your life right now that you can be THANKFUL for. A little bit of KIND can go a long way in someone’s day! (Yup, I just rhymed)
And in the words of Mr. FRED RODGERS
"There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind." There are times when explanations, no matter how
reasonable, just don't seem to help.”
