Cinderelly’s mama was right. Courage and kindness go hand in hand. Sometimes it’s hard to muster up the courage to serve it up, but kindness has so much power, especially in the tough times. Life experience has proven to me over and over again that kindness wins every time. One kind word can change someone’s day. Kindness can defuse an argument. It can uplift a broken heart. It can start a friendship, and a simple act of kindness might literally change a life. Sprinkle it like crazy, and dont forget to shower yourself with kindness too. Kindness is (healthy) food for the soul. I love this “Be Series” collection from our friends @centsofstyle. The entire collection is 50% off right now which means that you can score one of these awesome shirts for under $15 shipped.

Kindness for the Win. Always.
Cinderelly’s mama definitely said it best: Have courage and be kind. Sometimes it’s hard to muster up the courage to serve it up, but kindness has so much power, especially in the tough times. Life experience has proven to me over and over again that kindness wins every time. Always.
One kind word can change someone’s day. Kindness can defuse an argument. It can uplift a broken heart. It can start a friendship, and a simple act of kindness might literally change a life. And you know what, it’s FREE!
The Smile Game
My job as a blogger includes a lot of travel time. That means I spend a lot more time in airports than I would like. If you have ever spent time in an airport then you know that they are often full of weary or stressed travelers fighting through a sea of the same towards their destination. Every man and woman on tunnel vision quest for their gate.
What started off as an attempt to challenge myself to be more outgoing, has truly turned into something that I enjoy every time I travel. I call it “The Smile Game”. I purposefully look fellow travelers in the eye and smile at them. Say hello. Sometimes I even go so far as to through out a compliment or randomly ask them where they are traveling to or from. At first this all started in an exercise to push myself outside of my comfort zone. It took courage! But now, I’m addicted to this silly game because you know what? I have yet to not get a smile back from a stranger, it’s SO awesome! I don’t know them of course, and I don’t know there story, but you know what? I know that everyone has a story and that little smile that we share might just in some tiny way, effect their day, possibly even their story. I know if effects mine.
My favorite part is that I will usually get a startled look from them before they smile back. A double take or a glance over their shoulder to see if I’m really smiling at them. And, soon as they realize that I’m not robbing them or selling them something, we make a simple and quick connection that truly just warms my heart and gives me more energy. It makes my airport travel less icky. It makes me want to smile more. It really is addicting. Kindness is kind of like those power up mushroom thingies that you try to grab in Super Mario Bros, it super charges you! (Mom of tween here … I know my Mario Bros!)
Sprinkle it like crazy, and don’t forget to shower yourself with kindness too. Kindness is (healthy) food for the soul.
