Anniversary Message, Year 2?, and a Kindness Message From Minnesota
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” ~The 14th Dalai Lama
Kindness Magnet celebrates one year! 🎈 It has been one amazing year spent digging into the scientific research about kindness. That’s a lot of digging!
Are you feeling kinder? Happier? Full of new kindness habits?
Over the past year Kindness Magnet grew to reach readers in 24 countries 🌎❣ You shared Kindness Magnet with friends (thank you). We tried to raise money for good causes through an Amazon affiliate program….that was a fail. 😔
Each week we added more readers 😁…. and a few left us 😔. It has been a joyous journey…and for that, I thank you.
We have talked about how to begin with one small step of kindness and how to achieve any goal with a kindness formula and even how to get a job with kindness. We have shared stories of Nero the Hero, a veteran’s dog, Paper Angels, Bob Hope, and the real Secret Santa ….looked at research about how to live longer through kindness, why kind people are more successful than math whizzes, and why positivity can make you more resilient ( a good thing to know right now)….52 posts about kindness!
I want to thank you for sharing…..sharing your time, awesome feedback and ideas, including photos, story ideas, and links to research. You truly make this a community of kindness.
I also thank you for your encouragement. That is so important to me, and for that, I am very grateful. Kindness in action. 💜
This past year’s research has shown me that kindness can play a role in everything we do. Everything. Kindness can help us be happier and live longer! Kindness benefits both the giver and the receiver. Kindness is powerful. Kindness can truly help make the world a better place.
After a wonderful year learning about kindness, I have decided to take a hiatus from writing….and go explore more ways I can help make a difference. I’m not sure yet where this will lead me. Wish me luck!
When I return to Kindness Magnet, I’ll be sure to share my kindness adventures with you. While I’m gone, I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the Kindness Magnet library with 52 weeks of kindness.
If you know someone who might like a little kindness in their life, I hope you will share Kindness Magnet with them. Kindness is contagious!
I have a few ideas knocking around in my head. But there’s a lot of empty space up there (lol), and I sure could use your thoughtful ideas! Feel free to add your comments, or simply reply to this email. I would love to hear from you.
As a little ‘hiatus gift’, I hope you’ll enjoy the message below, from a young woman who is making a difference through kindness.
See you soon!
Kindness Message From Minnesota
At the age of 10, Grace Berbig lost her mother to leukemia after a two year battle. During those 2 years Grace and her two sisters created handmade notes for their mother to brighten her days, even when they couldn’t see her.
Inspired by the joy those notes created, Grace started a club when she was a junior in high school, calling it Letters of Love. Members created cards that were distributed to children’s hospitals. Now 20, Grace has formed a non-profit to continue her mission. Clubs have sprung up across the U.S.
Be inspired by her story here. ⭐
May your life be filled with kindness. 💜
