When I dipped into the bag and selected this week’s WOW, it warmed my heart.
I hope it does the same for you. Some parting thoughts on HARMONY, first:
Everyday kindnesses often get overlooked, but they are the WD-40 that makes life’s challenges a bit less irritating and problems less, well, squeakier.
Kindness is a tenderizer. Use lavishly!
It doesn’t take much to make a difference in someone’s day. Like when my neighbor saw me out letting Shasta do her business and she walked over and said, when I saw this, I thought of you. (It was a little peacock magnet with the phrase “Always Dream Big.”)
She GETS me.
Don’t you just love when people GET you?
Maybe you’ve read those books about love languages, and so for me, generosity (and presents!) is a biggie for me. That’s probably why I link kindness with generosity. I tip big. I love orchestrating presents and surprises for people. I live for little clues about what the people I love might like and then seek them out with laser focus.
KINDNESS FEELS GOOD.
When you give it AND when you receive it.
When I’m having a bad day, I sometimes say “Take THAT!” to the negative energy and do something that pokes a hole in the universe.
Like paying for someone’s manicure or their cup of coffee.
Now YOUR thing may not be MY thing, and that’s great. My Aunt Joan bakes and cooks and makes peoples’ days. My mom’s ricotta cookies are her random acts of kindness. My sister will whip up a work of art from a quote you said you liked because art flows out of her like a waterfall.
Let’s spread our special sauce on the world this week (at least our little corner of it) and spread some KINDNESS.
