Today's post is written in celebration of World Kindness Day! (It was officially celebrated Saturday, but for us Optimists, the party never stops for kindness!) I've been reading up on the holiday and its celebrations around the world, and I thought I would share some of the information I found with you:
I think it's so great that the whole planet can come together to celebrate this awesome holiday. We need some more kindness in our world and I hope that this movement can catch on and that we can build a positive force that every nation can share. I found a great quote that fits into today's theme very well and I thought it would be perfect to share in today's post...
"How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it!"-George Elliston
This is very true. A kind gesture or a random act of kindness that makes its way into your day can completely turn your mood around. What's so special is that it usually doesn't take much; kindness can be found in the smallest of acts - think of an appreciative "Thank You!" or a stranger who opens up the door for you. These little acts of kindness are sometimes the things that matter most and the things that can make the biggest impact.
In order to celebrate, we must participate. So today, I hope you will make yourself (and someone else) a beautiful day by performing a random act of kindness or offering a kind gesture to those in your life. This is one special moment where the whole world is taking the time to consider the beauty of kindness and I hope it can become not only one special day in our year, but a movement that becomes part of humanity.
Let's join in the fun of a global celebration! If you'd like to leave a comment today, leave your location along with your positive thoughts to share with other readers who are stopping by so we can see the true reach of World Kindness Day! :)
