Little Things Done With Great Love

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks, as if they were great and noble.”  Who do you think said that?  St. Therese, the little flower of Jesus? St.  Teresa  of Calcutta.  St. Teresa of  Avila? No! The correct answer is Helen Keller. I wonder if you are as shocked as I was at the answer. Yes, Helen Keller, a blind deaf woman who could barely talk, not only is known for this quote, but also lived this quote. Helen Keller spoke volumes even though she could barely utter a sound. Anne Sullivan taught her how to have eyes to see, a voice to speak out and ears to…

Growing Kindness with Yeses

There are so many self-help books out there that teach people to say “no,” to draw boundaries, to claim their space, and stick with it. What if kindness resides in the “yeses” and not the “noes?” What if with each “yes,” we are showing others that we are willing to carve time into our day to sit with them, to listen to them, and to share some insight with them. What if we grow with every yes? A new possibility unfolds and we allow ourselves to change according to that moment? What if, kindness is simply the ability to live in each moment and consciously choose to shape that moment through acts that would benefit another? I’m not suggesting saying…

Loving Your Own Company

One thing we are constantly informed of is that humans are social beings and that being alone is one of the greatest afflictions we can endure. Mix that with the pressures that we all experience; reconciliation of self-identity, images of our best selves, and our desires to be moral, helpful people. It can seem like we have some very large shoes to fill, our own. These common psychological afflictions contribute largely to a decreased sense of self-worth, and a sense that we are not as good right now as we should be. It is important to be able to be content with yourself and still give yourself room to grow and change for the better. There are a couple of…

World Kindness Day: Can We Build a Ritual of Being Good

an we go about with all the goodness of our being and just be plain nice to everyone around. Can we build a purpose and passion in life to be kind and loving. Do we miss opportunities of showing kindness because of the chaos in our life. Is kindness a far fetched mission for us, which seems good to hear but hard to act. Why not take the personal responsibility to make a positive contribution in our lives and become the person we truly desire to be. trigger that passion within ourselves to be kind not occasionally but every day Building rituals it is said are powerful motivators in achieving one’s personal goals in life. Being chosen consciously, rituals have…

I Challenge You!

Some people come into your life as a blessing. Some come into your life as lessons “What is your super power?” I jokingly asked my daughter Kaitlin one day. “My super power is kindness,” was her reply. I affirmed her with “Of course it is, Kaitlin!” She will always be our, kindhearted, baby girl, even if she is all grown up. She is the daughter who sends us flowers on her birthday, gives without asking for something in return, and always says thank you. Her gifts include something meaningful, and often she gives quality time which is my favorite gift of all. Amanda discovered a website, http://www.kindspring.org/ which was established to promote kind deeds. Another of my…
