Hey – are you “right” in your relationships? Is there something that’s being left unsaid? Are you withholding/holding back from someone you love? Is there someone you want to remind that you love them? Is there someone you want to hear from but haven’t in a while? If you close your eyes for a moment […]

There’s No Such Thing As A Random Act of Kindness.

17 Sep

There’s nothing random about an act of kindness. Kindness doesn’t just spontaneously happen.

Why We Should Be Kind to Bullies

This masterful piece by comedians Key and Peele reveals a hidden, but obvious truth about bullies. They are often hurting themselves and don’t know other ways to express it. So fascinating to see this perspective played out so well. Be Kind & Share!

Learned a New Word Today: “Seva”

21 Apr

“Seva” is sanskrit for “Selfless Service“, and is a kind of yoga practice. This came up in a conversation with Avani, the owner of Om Puerto Viejo, a yoga center and hostel in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. She had some great ideas about kindness curricula for classrooms, too! Lots to think about. Be Kind & […]
