Has a simple act of kindness impacted you? A chance encounter in a grocery store helped this SoDu mom transform her personal pain into the joy that comes from helping another. That eureka moment led Oriana Galardi-Este to create The Kindness Calendar. What is The Kindness Calendar? Oriana explains that "we are what we repeatedly do" and her creation offers people a concrete, simple way to make kindness a habit and therefore a part of everyday life.
"Imagine this: you wake up in the morning, get dressed, make coffee... but instead of leaving the house feeling frazzled with your long to-do list running through your head, you walk over to your Kindness Calendar hanging in the kitchen and pick your kindness mission for the day. In one fell swoop you feel re-centered, filled with purpose and intent, and excited at the prospect of helping another AND getting an endorphin release. This is the power of the Kindness Calendar, which gives you a new Act of Kindness to commit daily. "
Better yet, what if your child or spouse joins you daily to pick the kindness mission? Picture how at the end of the day you can discuss how you each met your goal and spread kindness during your day. It's such a simple, yet beautiful way to make your family, and our world, more joyful and giving.
Won't you say yes to kindness today?
