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.)
