I want to spread kindness and light all over the internet. I want to spread kindness and light throughout my home. I want to spread kindness and light throughout my community. Why not start a campaign of kindness, a campaign to spread light everyday for 365 days… a whole year.
So… today… this General Manager of the Universe will not resign an activity. Today she will be picking one up. Today she will pick up a new torch, fan a new flame, and begin a campaign to carry light to the world every day for 365 days.
That’s right. For 365 days I want to go out of my way to be kind. Every. Day. I want to live a life fueled by love. Every day I want to choose intentional, unselfish acts of love.
I’m not saying that spreading light and kindness requires me to be the next Mother Teresa or Mahatma Gandhi. It doesn’t have to be something big. Small acts… small lights can make BIG impacts in those dealing in darkness and despair.
Every day I want to make someone’s day BETTER! Flip the script. Live a life fueled by love and service. As I do I know I will find that there is no more room in my life for darkness, despair, bitterness, rage, and lack of forgiveness.
Spread the word!
Every day I will post a simple idea to spread light to others. Every day I will look for the light being spread by others and post about that too!
I know that is a lot of posting… but this blog is about me finding me and finding how I can make a difference in the world. Readers are great. Readers help spread the message of light and of positive thinking. But I write for me… for me to make sense of what happens in my life.
So… if you want to join me, please do.
