What You Wish to Experience, Provide For Another

Here in the midst of the pandemic, with the US president having been stricken, with climate change issues being significant, with polarization at the boiling level, I offer you this idea to provide for another something you wish to experience.

To begin, take time to consider some things you wish to experience in your own life. Then find another for whom you can be the source of one of those things, someone you think would really appreciate having it, and be that source. 

In concept, this isn't intended to be a material thing but something more experiential in nature.

Some ideas: 

  • If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another. 
  • If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe. 
  • If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things, help another to better understand. 
  • If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.

Do not feel like this has to be anything "big." An important part of this idea is to do something in a way that is sincere to YOU, not as a show for others. Your level of sincerity can only be defined by you.

With connection & warmth,


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