2020 has been a year of changes, anxious moments and a time to weigh our thoughts and responses – in many cases very carefully – before sharing with others. Being thoughtful and respectful allows for us to remain civil (or civilized) and also helps us to be kind at times when kindness is all that we can offer to our fellow community members.
Sometimes being kind challenges us in the moment, but if we can all just stop and BREATHE, we will realize that kindness given out is a blessing not only to ourselves but a gift to all of those around us… Think of it as the gift that keeps on giving! Kindness begets kindness, and makes the world a better place for all concerned.

Blessed by kindness, the world becomes a more gentle and giving place as recipients proceed to pay it forward. This may not be immediately apparent, so have patience. The reward is seeing a smile on someone’s face – or witnessing the relief a person feels when just an ounce of this emotional medicine lifts their spirits for the rest of the day! It can even be life-changing in the moment.
We all have blessings in our lives – some big and some small…and some we don’t realize right away but they are there with us even if we don’t see them. The kindness shown when someone holds a door open for you, offers you assistance unexpectedly, or listens to your frustrations at a time when you really need a good listening ear…these are all blessings…sometimes in disguise. Be thankful for the small and simple things in life – and feel blessed!
My Challenge to You:
Think of the month of November as a chance to show gratitude and thanks for the blessings in your life – and the opportunity to share those blessings in the form of Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). Look for ways to do a RAK each day to brighten someone else’s path as you walk along the way!
