Happy International Random Acts of Kindness Week!
I believe that being kind is the most important characteristic a person can develop. Not sticky sweet nice but kind, the stuff that comes from the heart.
My guess, if you are reading this, you practice random acts of kindness pretty regularly but, this week, let’s all step it up a notch shall we?!
If a week seems overwhelming you can focus your energy on National Random Acts of kindness day, Sunday February 17th!
Let’s all set the intention of doing as many random acts of kindness as we can !
