Be more kind than necessary – you never know who needs your kindness and when.

Kindness chips away at isolation … and from what I’ve been reading in social media, people are feeling alone. Lonely.


We have the power to measurably improve the world around us through kindness.


~ Rhonda Sciortino

What if you made kindness a habit?  Habits are unconscious – they’re the showcase of our character. (And scientific experimentation suggests that if you do something for more than 30 days it becomes a habit.)

What if kindness became part of your character? Could you improve the world around you through your character?

Continue to be who and how you are,

to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.
