365 Days of kindness

For the past year I have focused my days on spreading happiness.  I worked on being a ninga of niceness.  I found that kind acts make people happy, and happy people are nice to others, and the happiness grows and grows. I've learned a few things about myself and about kindness along my journey: Kindness… Continue reading 365 Days of kindness

#bethelight – Day 362 and 363

Yesterday was a rough day.   To be honest. nothing really went well from the beginning of the day.  To get through the day I needed to learn to re-frame my perception... change my perspective.  Sometime we make choices that are not the best.  Sometime circumstances are not the best.  Rather than allowing regret to take… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 362 and 363

#bethelight – day 361

I was thinking this morning how awkward and embarrassing I often am in social situations.  No wonder my teens laugh at me.  Then I was thinking of some of the "miss-fits" I work with in the theatre.  It dawned on me... rescuing a wallflower is an act of kindness.  At our cast party over the… Continue reading #bethelight – day 361

#bethelight – Day 360

It's hard to believe I've been doing this whole "spread kindness" kick for nearly a year. I have decided that KINDNESS is just common sense.  All you really have to do is think about what people really need; think outside your own desires and selfishness.  Sometimes it's a lack of funds that keep people from… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 360

#bethelight – Day 356, 357, 358, and 359

The past 4 days I have dedicated myself to the cause of helping young people discover their stories, discover their worth and discover their potential.  Mamma Mia closed last night.  The seniors gave directors gifts.  They gave me a "journal" with letters in it from each of them.  These message from the kids I love… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 356, 357, 358, and 359

#bethelight – Day 354 and 355

Yesterday was a show day, so I didn't come home until very late.  When I got home my son wanted some help.  So my act of kindness was to sacrifice sleep to help my son with the things he needed. Today is Halloween.  Today I will support a different high school theatre program.  Today I… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 354 and 355

#bethelight – Day 353

Today I've been thinking about how letting go is an act of kindness.  If you have been carrying around a grudge, it's time to let it go and forgive them.  I know.  It's harder to do than to say.  I am discovering that I don't need the negative energy in my life.  Remember that forgiveness… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 353

#bethelight – Day 349, 350, 351, and 352

It's been a busy week with the opening of my show.  I leave home early and come home well past bedtime.  I am pouring everything I have into my job and helping these kids and my co-worker succeed.  I am sacrificing sleep and energy for this... only 5 more performances left.  I can't say that… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 349, 350, 351, and 352

phew!!! Ii made it to opening night.... and the biggest secret I've kept for awhile. My act of kindness over the past 3 days was prepping for my son to move home today and surprise his little sister at her opening night performance.  Her reaction made it all worth it!  I also would say my… Continue reading #bethelight – day 346, 347, and 348

#bethelight – Days 341, 342, 343, 344, and 345

My show opens on Wednesday.  Every waking moment is spent on getting the show ready.  I guess that is my act of kindness over the past couple of days.  However, I am not sure if it counts.  I'm just doing my job... even if most of it is a volunteer job.  It just isn't giving… Continue reading #bethelight – Days 341, 342, 343, 344, and 345
