February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day – part of the week of Random Acts of Kindness events.
Scattering seeds of kindness is fantabulous – you’re doing a wonderful thing by bringing more light and joy to the world. Also take a moment each day this week to reflect on the meaning of kind acts – how they impact others, the greater difference that they make the positive impact they have on your own life.
Here are a few questions to reflect on…
- Why is it important to demonstrate kindness?
