Happy Hump Day, Friends.  So… kindness, I don’t really have to tell you, but we need more of it!

Sharing from my heart a bit today.  Not sure if it’s the yucky weather or what… but I’m feeling a little down and out today.  Can’t quite pinpoint it.  But when you step back and look, there are so many bad things happening in the world.  Sure, the pandemic seems to be finally slowing down.  But then you’ve got the horrible crisis in Ukraine, sky-high gas prices that are going to make us all need side hustles… Just a lot of hostility, hatred, indifference.

It’s easy to get caught up in all that negativity.  I’ll admit, it definitely gets me down more often than I like.

I just finished a conversation with a co-worker, and he asked do I every get excited/giddy about going somewhere or seeing someone.  And honestly, I couldn’t remember the last time I’d felt that excitement.  That’s REALLY sad.

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m a big personal development fan.  And I don’t want to live a life where every thing is just… meh.  I want to live a life FULL of exciting things.  Finding joy in the little things, laughing more, showing those I love just how much I love them… being kind to a stranger.  Making an IMPACT.  Giving back.  Living a life that’s so FULL, I won’t ever look back and think I wasted my life away.

One of my favorite authors, Brené Brown, talks about living Wholeheartedly.  And that is my goal!  But, it’s a PRACTICE.  Which means DAILY practice to live a life like that. She talks about being authentic, courageous, brave.  That’s what I want.  So maybe that’s why I chose to share my heart with you today.  This is me– real, honest, flawed… but in the arena, fighting to be that courageous, wholehearted, full-of-life person.

I stumbled upon some great TikToks that I wanted to share, because I think this world definitely needs more kindness. And honestly, these really made me think.  I will admit that I’ve been that person watching someone and not offered to help.  Or, I judge them.  When I don’t even know the situation.  But it really shouldn’t matter.  If we feel the pull to do something for someone… let’s DO IT!

And to learn a bit more about me and my awkward, imperfect self… check this out!

So, what can you do today to spread that kindness?
