“Perhaps more than any other factor, kindness gives meaning and value to our life, raises us above our troubles and our battles, and makes us feel good about ourselves.”
Piero Ferrucci
The world is filled with beautiful and magical things. Let the rain fall. Bow, but don’t break. Be kind.
These beautiful flowers are great food for bees, bats, and butterflies. They are also poisonous. Kindness is beautiful and never poisonous. Be kind.

#EverydayKidnness This is the last Everyday Kindness post for a while. Thanks for following these posts.

I re-started this project in early 2017.

It was a time when anger, rage, and cruelty seemed to be all anyone talked about. Who won? Who lost? They are losers. They, them, those guys. Mean people were celebrated for their cruelty.

Human beings survived because they were able to cooperate and support each other. We survive because we are innately kind.

I wanted to remind people of their own innate ability to be kind.

I could make these graphics, and, with social media, I could send it out into the world. I’ve spent every Sunday for the last 3 years making these posts. Every single day for three years, I’ve posted them to Facebook and other social media.

Today, I am hitting pause in order to turn some kindness toward myself.

From March through June, I’ll be on a kind of hermitage. I should be back in July. This project should continue after that.

In the meantime, please — be kind.

It is your essential nature. Being kind will change your life. Allowing yourself to received kindness will change your life.

I’ll be back — chc
