I have been thinking a lot about being KIND. and what that really means. of course it is just a simple way of living….but how often do we actually practice BEING KIND?
“be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle”
such a simple line with so much meaning. It reminded me of the day I met the man in the blue shirt and the how one simple act of kindness by me changed me whole week because of HIM….or my whole life depending on how you look at it. It’s a ripple effect and if everyone can do one small act a day…imagine how it could change the world. So, with the help of Folgers and their new “the best part” campaign I have decided to do simple acts of kindness each week. even if it’s in a small way. Much like the man in the blue shirt did for me a year ago.
In Folgers own words here is what their new “the best part” is all about:
We believe in the power of optimism. The idea that positivity can actually change the world, especially your little corner of it. A shared smile. An encouraging word. An inspirational story. Each one ripples out, building into a wave that carries hope and the promise of better days ahead. Every day, we all have the power to embrace this optimism. We’re here to help you take it in and share it out. Let’s do it together.
It doesn’t have to be big. A simple word of encouragement, a small gift, a smile… any little thing can changes someone’s whole day. Let’s spread some good…some positivity and make this world a brighter place hand in hand with Folgers. To start of this week I have decided to buy 3 $5 gift cards, just a special little something that I will leave anonymously on three strangers’ cars. With a small note of encouragement and this little picture…
Spreading good…one small act at a time!
Will you join me?
