31 Days Of Kindness: The Way We Look

  (See all 31 Days posts here) We all have those little things about ourselves that we are self conscious about. Perhaps our hair is too frizzy, we are too short, we hate our ears. Maybe it’s something about our voice, or the fact that we never grew past the age of twelve. We can […] more

31 Days Of Kindness: RAKs

  (See all 31 Days posts here) Have you heard the term “RAK”? As in, “you’ve been RAK’d”? It’s no secret that I love my Filofax¬†(I actually need to post an update on my setup!) and I’m active in a few social media groups dedicated to paper planners. It was through those groups that I […] more

31 Days Of Kindness: Offer A Hand

(See all 31 Days posts here) As a society, we seem to have moved away from the idea of helping others, especially strangers. We are afraid that we will come across as threatening, or we are scared for our own safety. That’s really sad. So today, to show kindness, I urge you to go out […] more

(See all 31 Days posts here) A few days ago, I was out shopping with the kids. We were driving through the parking lot of a strip mall that is somewhat confusing-there are a few three way stops, multiple pedestrian crosswalks, and the whole thing is surrounded by a mess of one way streets and […] more

31 Days Of Kindness: Compliment A Stranger

  (See all 31 Days posts here)   I love today’s topic because I feel like the best, most generous acts of kindness are ones where you do not expect anything in return, and this is a great example of that. Complimenting a stranger is fun, and somewhat addicting, actually. It’s a bit strange the […] more

31 Days Of Kindness: Give Something You Have

  (See all 31 Days posts here) Yesterday, I suggested that you show kindness by giving someone a gift. Today is a very similar idea-but instead of giving someone a gift that you purchased, give something that you already have. This is a little bit of a weird idea, I know. Right now you are […] more

31 Days Of Kindness: Give A Little Gift

(See all 31 Days posts here) Who doesn’t love receiving a gift? Think about it-the feeling of anticipation, wondering what is inside the bag or under the wrapping paper.

31 Days Of Kindness: Offer Forgiveness

¬†(See all 31 Days posts here) I have heard it said (I’m pretty sure it was on Oprah, I glean a lot of wisdom from her) that you have not truly forgiven someone until you can thank them. That’s right, until you can go to them and say, “thank you for this experience because it […] more
