It’s almost fitting that this Friday is World Kindness Day. With all the background noise we had during the last few weeks, what better way to overcome the divides of politics than with kindness?
What began 21 years ago as an effort from the World Kindness Movement is now a global movement reminding everyone of the power of kindness. The purpose of this day is not only to highlight and encourage good deeds in the community, but to inspire others to believe that we can make a difference one act at a time.
Ryan and I plan to celebrate World Kindness Day. He came up with a list of ideas that he could do. I listed them in his order:
• Holding door for people
• Saying hello and introducing yourself
• Compliment someone
• Give flowers to Aunt Jeanne
• Thank Jack for being a good friend
• Thank Mom for being the best mom
(Not sure why I am last??)
Why not sit with your child and develop your list? I definitely want a kinder world. Each of us truly make the difference!
