I hope you had a great weekend! Today I’d like to talk about spreading kindness. It’s on my mind because my dear friend, Barbara, has shown an incredible amount of it. We met online (thanks, internet!) and have bonded over our love for cute things.
Barbara recently went on a trip to Tokyo and, being the amazing person she is, she asked me if there was anything I wanted her to pick up. How incredibly sweet is that? She knew I’d probably want things and it was so kind of her to think of me. Not many people would do that. Anyone else would have a ton of other things on their mind but she was thinking of others.
Barbara is nothing but color and light amongst a dreary, cloudy day. She is so incredibly thoughtful, sweet, kind, and all around wonderful. I feel lucky to even call her a friend. My life is richer just by her being in it.
It’s easy to make someone else’s day. Picking up a coffee in the morning for someone else. A cheerful ‘hello’ to a stranger. Sending a text to your friend to let them know you’re thinking of them. You can be the rainbow to anyone so long as you spread kindness.
How do you spread kindness? How are you the rainbow in someone else’s cloud?
