Kindness Challenge 2013

I challenge everyone who reads this post to go forward for the rest of 2013 making a concerted effort to be kind to those you meet. Each and every day in each and every moment you have the choice to be a blessing or a curse in someone else's life. Be that blessing, be kind, you have no idea what impact you may have on some stranger's life.

If you are looking for simple ways to be kind: you can carry a few bottles of water in a small cooler in your car and offer water to those who need it when you see them (lawn care folks, a construction worker, a tired passerby). In the cold months, carry a couple of those inexpensive chemical hand warmers and hand them out to the bare-handed (mine went to the mailman who was very happy to receive it on a bitter winter morning).

For more inspiration, see:

At the end of the year, having made safe and wonderful choices, let me know what worked best for you.
