Do Something Kind in Your Neighborhood

To best fulfill the intention of this suggestion, think of it as a two-parter. 

The first half is to tour whatever you consider to be your neighborhood. Visit the familiar but try to look at it as if you are seeing it for the first time. As you tour, take note of how much is new to you and what you may have failed to notice before. 

This part of the exercise is specially designed to get you to consider the familiar but with fresh eyes.

The second half of the theme is to get you thinking about what kindness you can do in your neighborhood. So as you conduct your tour, look for opportunities for kindness, as defined by you. 

Try not to plan your outing on the kindness action, but let it appear to you. Be open to it. Let it find you. 
  • Is it for a person, a group, a particular age? 
  • Is it for another species? 
  • Is it for the environment? 
  • Or is it for some combination?
Once you have defined the kind action, plan it so it can be done as fully as is needed to complete it properly and then do it. Consider the act as having its own integrity and your job is to honor that integrity.

With connection & warmth,



Kind Living inspires people to both recognize
and engage in acts of ordinary kindness.
