Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That

A beautiful sky on a frigid morning…

…a happy hour gathering of robins outside my office during the late afternoon…

…and someone with a cello shopping buddy earlier this evening.

It’s Friday. That’s what I’ve got.

Well, maybe one more thing. I read an article this morning I thought was really great. I’m not sure why, but it really spoke to me. It’s called “Three Lessons from a Kindness Challenge.” ( or click here) It divides kindness into three separate components: be kind to strangers, be kind to the people you know, and be kind to yourself. I’d never thought of it that way, but it’s true. All three forms of kindness are important, require effort and can be very difficult — and sometimes extending kindness in one area can mean neglecting another.

Anyhoo, I’m not certain why this seemed so profound to me, but I thought I’d share.
