Extending KIndness

A new month arrives and with it the opportunity to start something new, and leave other things behind...

In a few short weeks, the school season will begin once more, and summer will gradually fade into fall, which is one of my favorite times of the year.

Today, I received two separate messages about kindness. It was a reminder to me to be more mindful of the opportunities that come knocking on my door to exercise more kindness. And so, I share them here with you, in hopes that you too, may be moved to extend kindness to others throughout this month.

Kindness: Pass It On!

Give a flower.
Eat with someone new.
Listen with your heart.
Visit a sick friend.
Offer a hug.
Give an unexpected gift.
Make a new friend.
Pick up litter.
Say "hello."
Call a lonely person.
Open a door.
Help carry a load.
Plant a tree.
Pass a kindness on.
Buy someone's meal.
Cheer a friend.
Thank a teacher.
Give blood.
Read to a child.
Do one kind act every day.
Leave a thank you note.
Offer your seat.
Tip generously.
Be tolerant.
Let another go first.
Bake cookies for emergency workers.
Tutor a student.
Give a compliment.
Pay the next driver's toll.
Lend a hand.
Give a balloon to a child.
Offer a ride.
Celebrate the day.
Respect others.
Encourage a child.
Walk a dog.
Do a favor.
Forgive mistakes.
Drive courteously.
Share a smile

"Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindess in giving creates love."
