“A little spark of kindness can put a colossal burst of sunshine into someone’s day…”
“How do we change the world? One random act of kindness at a time…”
For some time now I have wanted to create a little corner in my online world dedicated wholly to acts of kindness, uplifting ideas, soulful stories & creative prompts- all to invoke a more inspired way of living.
I believe that kindness resides in the collective heart of us all. I also believe that the human spirit has a deep desire to connect, share & help others along the way. Quite simply put, we rise by lifting others. It enriches our experience & makes life more meaningful when we are positively impacting the lives of those around us. The more we can be of service to others, the more our life expands in the most beautiful of ways.
Kindness doesn’t need to be complex or expensive. A few gentle words of encouragement, a listening ear or a smile can change the life of another- I know this because I am blessed to have been a part of such beauty.
The Dali Lama once said, “There is no such thing as a stranger, only a friend I have not yet met.” Yes to this! Even our adversaries have a story behind their actions. This is not to say that we must be friends with every person on the planet, but rather to hold a space of compassion in our hearts for all beings & to travel though life with kindness as our guiding light. It will not lead us astray.
Each week, here in this space, I will be sharing beautiful quotes, imagery & stories that will touch your heart & encourage your own unique way of sharing your kind spirit. I will also have creative prompts to partake in & ponder with an Instagram tag of #thekindnesscorner so we can find each other & connect.
My intention for “The Kindness Corner” is to scatter sunshine & kindness around like confetti. This is a place to bring a smile to your face & lighten your days. I envisage a supportive community dedicated to nourishing each other in the most creative & kind ways.
The exciting news related to this new space is that once a month I will also be giving away an original artwork to someone who is in need of more kindness in his or her life. It could be someone you know who is struggling or perhaps YOU if you are in need of some extra special care. It could be a new mother navigating the tricky waters of raising a little one or a friend feeling out of sorts on her journey. Please remember that this could be you, or a friend. Kindness is not complete if it does not include ourselves!
Simply write a comment below & at the end of the month I will choose one lucky recipient & post the painting to them free of charge- my gift from me, to you.
I am wishing you a very warm welcome & heartfelt thanks for being here. Clearly we have been drawn together as we share similar ideals of a kinder & more compassionate world.
Much love to you,
P.s Don’t forget to leave a comment below for your opportunity to win this months original artwork entitled “Butterfly Kisses” (worth $195) This is open to people worldwide.
Feel free to also drop by my Instagram page for daily inspo or Facebook for weekly art related news. Lets connect & change this world together, one act of kindness at a time!
