I got up really early this morning, January 1st 2015. My head buzzing with ideas. Sadly no one else is awake at 4am so I turn on my computer and head to Pinterest and search for like minded souls.
I love Pinterest you can find a whole lot of people who have the same interests and thoughts as you and you can find so much inspiration in areas in which you are interested from kilts to kittens to kites. So what am I searching for on this New Years day?
I am searching for kindness.
I want to be inspired by kindness that I see and read about, be inspired by words about kindness and deeds. I want to capture these inspirations and pin them down and share them. Inspire kindness in myself and others is what I want to do with this new year.
My intention is to build a new website or blog completely dedicated to inspiring kindness..a simple resource that gives huge importance to simple acts that can change everything. I have bought the domain name and after several wonderful inspiring hours on Pinterest I have created an Inspiring Kindness board filled with ideas to get me started.
My mum’s legacy was a knowledge that the only thing that really matters in life is to be kind. She lived this and my new project is inspired by her. As Henry James said and as I tell me kids repeatedly….
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
I don’t find this so easy to live but I want to try to be kinder and I want to stay focussed on trying and to share what I learn along the way.
I do hope you will join me on my new journey and share with me your stories and inspirations. Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2015 is kind to you.
