Being kind makes the world go around
So Wednesday 13th November is world kindness day, a perfect opportunity to go above and beyond your normal loveliness to do something extra kind, without expecting anything in return.
The smallest gesture can really make someone’s day so why not just make kindness the norm, not the exception. Push yourself out of your comfort zone once a week, then move to twice a week etc until it becomes part of your routine. Stop and help that elderly person across the road, offer to help out with a charity once a week in the evening, compliment someone you work with or do someone’s chores so that they can have a rest instead.
Here’s some inspiration for you to help you on your way. Let’s all join together and spread some joy.
