Hello Kind Living Friends!

Who are you constantly? 

In other words, how do you act and behave when there is no one watching, when with absolute certainty you know that what you are doing is not being seen by anyone?

Such is the encouragement that I offer you this week, what I'm calling "to do the right thing." First, consider the concept and what it means to you. Pay attention to the opportunities you have to do the right thing when alone. Making sure you clean up after yourself in a public restroom is an example. If you live alone, it might mean making your bed. If you live with someone else, it could mean putting the toilet seat back down.

Moving forward, try to extend the concept of doing the right thing throughout your life. Do all the little things the way they are meant to be done. And when the opportunity arises, do the bigger things in a way that makes you proud.

For an extra challenge this week, try doing at least one "right thing" act anonymously.

Thanks for reading!

FROM THE ARCHIVES - Day 6, The 12 Days of Kindness, 2013

In May of 1963, Melinda, my wife, and I were both born, Melinda on the 13th and me on the 24th. In 2013, as a way to honor our 50th birthdays, I crafted a kindness activity.

For 12 days, beginning on Melinda’s birthday and continuing through mine, I sent out a message that contained a kindness theme suggestion. The idea was for people interested in honoring Melinda’s and my milestone birthdays to contemplate and then act on each theme each day.

On Day 6, May 18, I encouraged folks to do something kind for an acquaintance. Learn more here.
Kind Living inspires people to both recognize
and engage in acts of ordinary kindness.
