As we welcome a new year we have a wonderful opportunity to create a whole year of Everyday Kindness! The prayer of St Francis contains a powerful message from which we can model ourselves.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
In 2013, will you embrace Everyday Kindness?
Have you ever watch someone do something kind for someone else? I’m sure you have and when you did, didn’t it make you feel like doing something kind too? When an act of kindness is done it benefits the giver, the receiver and the observer. Just think how different the world would be if each one of us practiced kindness everyday! All of us here at The Kindness Wave invite you to join us! Let’s all wake up everyday with the intention of practicing kindness.
When you are kind you choose to put others in place of yourself. The Spirit of Kindness flows from love for our fellow man. Remember, no one is perfect. That is why understanding is so important. Being kind and compassionate allows us to better understand others. It is through understanding them that we grow ourselves. Are you interested in growing yourself? If so, choose to put others first everyday!

We’re sure you have noticed, this world of ours is in need of kindness. On any given day you have probably walked down the street past a number of people who do not even take the time to look at you let alone smile. Our busy schedules, the pull of cell phones and ipads, financial pressures and on and on makes so many of us less than mindful of others all around us. The need for everyday kindness is loud and clear and we intend to do something about it. Will you join us? Visit our campaign at The Kindness Wave You will be helping us greatly in our mission to awaken everyday kindness. Thanks for you support!
Disaster can often bring out the worst and the best in people. There has been a lot of devastation brought on by Hurricane Sandy and many people are suffering. One thing is certain, the kindness of others in desperately needed at this time and it is being found everywhere.
Several days ago, Newark Mayor Corey Booker tweeted, “Police have reported ZERO looting or crimes of opportunity in Newark. And ceaseless reports of acts of kindness abound everywhere.”
Reports of acts of kindness are showing up all over the place and although there is still a lot of people in great need these acts are making a real difference. Is there something you can do to help? There will be relief efforts going on in the coming days and you can tune into those. You can make a donation to the Red Cross as they have been responding to the needs already. Or you can simply remeber that everyday kindness matters and share some today!
Our world is in great need of Hope and Kindness, don’t you think? When you choose to share a little kindness everyday something wonderful begins to happen. The hearts that recieve your kindness become filled with hope and it can even spill back onto you. If each and every one of us would chose to share kindness everyday, this world would become a kinder, more hopeful place. Will you join us? Start a ripple…Create a wave. It begins with YOU!
