Serving the world

Serving the world

“We can be of service by bringing some kindness, care, groundedness, and balance to those around us.” ~Sebene Selassie

In a world so filled with war, pain, and disasters, it’s easy to feel helpless to make any difference at all. I keep reminding myself that any difference I want to make starts right here with how I treat the people around me.

A path to kindness

A path to kindness

“It’s really easy to be kind to others when I remember that none of us came into this world with a manual about how to get it all right.” ~Jill Bolte Taylor

It’s also easier to be kind to myself when I remind myself that there is no manual, and we’re all just trying to find our way through a challenging and messy world.

Be the reason someone still believes

Be the reason someone still believes

“Be the reason someone still believes in magic, truth, authenticity, compassion, intelligent conversation, loyalty, courage, and love that doesn’t have an agenda.” ~Brooke Hampton

So many people are hurting this time of year, and it’s easy to get so caught up in our own holiday celebrations that we miss seeing their pain. Take the time to reach out to those in your own circle who may be having a difficult season this year to help them believe that life still brings goodness and love, even in the hard moments.

Kindness matters

Kindness matters

“You may not always see the results of your kindness, but every bit of positive energy you contribute to the world makes it a better place for all of us.” ~Lisa Currie

The acts of kindness we do often feel like such small drops in the ocean of this world’s pain and hard places, but whether we see any impact or not, those small kindnesses make a much bigger difference than we think.

You could be that thread

You could be that thread

So many people are hanging on by the thinnest of threads. Treat all people well. You could be that thread.” ~John Pavlovitz

Kindness costs us so little, and it may mean everything to those we offer it to. Even when we must set limits or draw boundaries, it’s still possible to do so with kindness because we never know how thin a thread another may holding on by.
