#HAWMC Day 3: There’s No Such Thing As A Small Act Of Kindness

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” Scott Adams

 

A smile to the person passing you by. A note to a stranger telling them to have a good day. Offering to help someone carry their bags to their car. Little acts of kindness such as these, are actually not so little at all. When you act kindly, you inspire others around you to act kindly as well. No act of kindness is too small. The positive effect that you can have on someone’s day should be reason enough to act kind. Just think about the bad days you’ve had yourself. Doesn’t it make your super crappy day just a little bit better when someone does or says something kind to, even if it’s just a compliment or offering to do a small favor for you? Having kindness sent your way can completely turn your day around. Therefore, when you spread kindness to someone else, you have to the potential to completely turn their day around as well.

There are a couple of places that I like to turn to when I want to hear positive stories about people being kind: The Bobby Bones Show and the Love What Matters podcast (which is run by Amy from The Bobby Bones Show.” The Bobby Bones show promotes pimpin joy, which means when you spread joy and kindness to someone else, they are likely to spread that joy and kindness to another someone else, and so on and so forth. They always encourage people to do something kind for someone, and their stories of real people doing so always bring a smile to my face. In fact, they have something called Joy Week, where they do things to spread joy every single day of the week and share those things with their listeners. The Love What Matters podcast does something similar. It shares incredible and positive stories about people just like you and I. Most of the time, those stories include someone doing something kind for someone else.

Always remember: there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act of kindness will help someone in ways you may never believe.

Let’s be kind to one another.

Monday Mantra: Beautiful Things Come From Not So Beautiful Places


We’ve all been there: the dark and scary places, the rough patches, the slumps, the unwanted changes. You won’t see it until you’re out of those places (I know I for sure didn’t) but beautiful things will come from them. Some of the most beautiful things and people in my life came after I went through some pretty ugly stuff.

Tuesday Tunes: “Ain’t No Man” by The Avett Brothers

I’ve always loved The Avett Brothers and this song just reminds me why.

It’s an upbeat, feel good song about not letting other people dull your shine, step all over you, detail your path or make you feel like you’re not good enough.

You’ve got to serve something, ain’t that right? I know it gets dark, but there’s always the light.

It’s about being so confident and proud of who you are, that you don’t let other people make you question your dreams. 

If you want to feel good about yourself and if you want to feel like this girl 💃🏼, then seriously, do yourself a favor and listen to this song! 

Thursday’s Tips & Tricks: Don’t Be Afraid of Taking The Leap

Thursday’s Tips & Tricks 💠
Don’t let an opportunity scare you! If something excites or interests you, take a chance on it. Maybe you don’t have all the aspects figured out–but just say yes and everything else will fall into place after. Change can be scary but change can also be awesome. 

  
Don’t hold yourself back from something just because you’re worried it won’t work out or because you don’t have all the parts figured out. ☝🏼️ 

Monday Mantra: Let’s Get Lost

  
Many times I’ve found myself feeling “lost.” Sometimes it was teenage angst, other times it was more of a serious, sinking feeling due to my health. 

We’ve all been there and we all have our reasons. 

But each time, I found my way and along the path found something or someone that I don’t think I would’ve found had I not gotten lost in the first place.
