Today is International Kindness Day!

To mark the occasion, here is a fun mural I saw over the weekend during a road trip, along with a list of “seven ways to start making kindness the norm in your daily life” (according to a very nice random Instagram post I spotted this week):

1.) Send an uplifting text to a friend or family member.

2.) Let that guy merge into traffic with a wave and a smile.

3.) Include intentional moments of kindness, laughter and delight in your daily routine.

4.) Go slightly outside of your comfort zone at least once a day to make someone smile.

5.) Share a compliment with a co-worker or friend.

6.) Reach out to a family member you haven’t spoken to in awhile.

7.) Treat someone to a cup of coffee (a friend, stranger, or even yourself).

The mural might seem like a stretch or off-topic, but I believe dogs are the kindest creatures in existence.

Especially this one.

(Can we talk for a moment about the gorgeousness of this photo of Finnegan taken by my younger son.)
