The Kindness Blog – A Must-Read!

15 Aug

Today, I had the pleasure of coming across another blog that focused on kindness.  It is called simply The Kindness Blog.  If you have not had the good fortune to come across this blog as of yet, I highly recommend following it, for the convenience of having ‘feel good’ moments at your fingertips.

I found the following video on that blog, which brought me to tears (and not for the first time, while reading the posts on this blog).  The post on The Kindness Blog can be found here, but I really wanted to share this video with everyone.

The song used in the video is pretty awesome, too.

I hope you all pay a little visit to the people over at The Kindness Blog, because they really are doing a spectacular job of spreading kindness to the world.

Today, I’d like to challenge you all to take a moment and commit an Act of Kindness toward yourself, with the true spirit of kindness.

Here’s a little list to get you started: Continue reading
