Hey, Lovely People… It’s #WorldKindnessDay

 

 

It’s Friday. TGIF, right? Also, it’s the 13th. Which means, well, it’s Friday the 13th. So… Spooky, creepy, unlucky, and all that jazz. But here’s a cool thing about today:

It’s World Kindness Day. 

What a lovely thought.

I mean, sure, yeah, every day should be World Kindness Day. Just like every day should be Earth Day. That said, regardless of wishes and whatnot, today, November 13th, is World Kindness Day. 

I’ve always been a fan of RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness). I also sort of like the whole being nice to people on a regular basis thing. And this day is rooted in a desire for more kind acts, random or otherwise. So count me in. Always.

A global celebration of being nice? Yes, please.

I know a lot of people (including me) will say we need this now MORE THAN EVER. Seriously. Look around. With everything going on… But then, really, not so much. We always need this. We do. 

While you’re being kind to neighbors and computer screens full of colleagues, remember to be kind to yourself. (That’s one some of us forget. *ahem*)

Here’s to kindness, both given and received.

Hoping things are kind in your world today (and always).

Happy World Kindness Day, my friends.❤️🌎

  1. Sarah, here courtesy of David’s reblog. Thanks for reminding us. My children gave me a sign that is indicative of what I firmly believe and try my best to emulate – Do not mistake kindness as weakness. Choosing to be kind does not make anyone a weaker person. Too many fall into the trap of believing false bravado and putting others down is strength. It is not. Keith

    • Thanks for visiting, Keith. You’ve brought up a good point. I guess there are those out there who feel it’s a weakness. I’m in complete agreement with you–it’s not. Not in any way. Even small acts of kindness make a big difference. You never know what your actions mean to another person. Hope your day is filled with kindness. 🌎❤️

      • Thanks Sarah. You reminded me of a story from the book “Half the Sky” by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. It is a tough read about the global maltreatment of women. The story is of these village women known for their kindness who hid young men escaping sure death from raiders. These women stood their ground and would not let these men search their homes. Their goodwill made these men ride away. Talk about bravery. Keith

    • Yes, well, I obviously didn’t *miss* this, but did forget until the day before. Hence the post. A good reminder to all. No need to wait until next year, my friend. 🌎❤️ *throws kindness confetti at you* 😉 (Kindness confetti is a thing. If it’s not, it should be. I made it up but I say it’s real and this is my blog so I get to do that.) Cheers!
