Kindness, according to the quick google search I just did, is a quality that combines friendliness, generosity, and consideration, without expectation of praise or reward.
It’s similar to, but not synonymous with, being nice. Kindness includes boundaries which makes both parties feel good, whereas niceness is more about being agreeable at any cost, which is a breeding ground for resentment.
Kindness is a lot of wonderful things, and below you'll find 20 additional random acts of kindness below for your consideration. Which one can you implement this week?
May they brighten your day, and maybe even the day of those around you.
Feeling grateful to Sarah G. for her ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review of Truth Matters, Love Wins on Amazon - my appreciation runs deep for everyone who takes the time out of their busy day to provide kind feedback. 🙏🏼
Being vulnerable is not easy, but it can change people’s lives while providing new layers of understanding around what you yourself went through.
If you experienced any kind of trauma as a young child - and let’s be real, in some way, shape, or form, everybody did - your inner child (the part of your belief system shaped by your first 5-7 years of life) needs the adult version of you to face it, own it, and heal it, and they will send you indicators of such that get louder and louder until you do.
I had a tough day yesterday.
An unexpected, unsettling exchange with someone I had considered a friend took the wind out of my sails and triggered a whole emotional avalanche, showing me I clearly have a lot of healing left to do.
I wish I’d been able to say, “Oh, I see, good luck with that,” and go about my day. You know, let their issue just be their issue.
But I didn’t do that.
Look What's Been Published!
It happened a bit earlier than expected. I was aiming for early May, but on the morning of April 22, I hopped onto Amazon to create my Author Profile, a task my publisher had given me, and boom!
There she was, in all her "Available Now" glory.
After a quick back-and-forth with my publisher, who said it was likely a self-correcting glitch that would revert to "pre-order" status soon, I decided to roll with it. We all know I'm a sucker for signs from the Universe, and this felt like a big one for a few different reasons.
