manKIND

Hi loves,

How do you want to be remembered? This is the opening question to the beautiful, insightful, and bubbly video by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. As the video acknowledges, it is a “whopping” question. Still, it raises some thoughts about how we live currently, and how that will affect the way we are remembered.

So, as an interactive way to do this post, I want to hear your acts of kindness! What have you observed? What have you done? What has been done to you? Big or small, tell your acts of kindness! One act, two, a dozen! Send us a story or make a list (a favorite thing for becauseiamawoman) and we will share the kindness for everyone as a reminder of the economics of kindness in our world.

I realize it can be difficult to think of an example of a positive human interaction, but it doesn’t have to be anything grand or anything small- just kind.

Some examples to encourage you to share:
– Allowing a semi that needs to get over room to do so, without speeding by or getting frustrated
– Watering the flowers for a neighbor
– The bracelet another counselor made me just in time for my last day of work
– Random comments on my facebook wall that make me smile
– Cracking jokes with the overworked Subway employee

We all know the benefits of thinking of positive things- so take some time out to do it and share it with becauseiamawoman! “What have you filled the world with?”

    I am commenting on this only because I love Gina Mussio.

    Last Sunday I took part in North Broadway’s “Church Outside the Walls.” I helped to pick up trash at Whetstone Park for about an hour. It was wonderful to see so many NBUMC members come out to serve others!
