Hello Kind Living Friends!

This week, allow yourself to be open to direction, which means trusting that an opportunity for kindness will find you. When it does, complete it. To allow this to happen, it's best to relax and trust that it will happen.

That's the being open part.

When the opportunity does find you, engage in the kindness fully and mindfully, taking steps to complete the action in the way it is meant to be done. See this action as having integrity and it is your job to honor it.

Additionally and for further practice with this concept this week, act on many of the small, spontaneous opportunities for kindness that are regularly presented to you.

To extend this exercise further, talk to a trusted friend (Zoom, Skype, phone, whatever!) about ANYTHING you find meaningful or profound this week, be it a statement made, a newspaper article read, a scent, an aspect of nature, etc.

Reflect on each of these things and ask yourself what is the message behind them. Those things that are profound to you are providing you direction.



I was scheduled to host a two-session kindness workshop at a community center in Seattle back in March. Understandably, it got postponed due to the pandemic. It has been rescheduled, but now it's taking place online, meaning anyone in the world can attend!

For an hour on the next two Mondays, May 11th & 18th at 5:30pm PDT, I'll be discussing the importance of recognizing acts of kindness during the pandemic. Learn more and sign up via this link.

I hope to see you there!

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

Our Tao of Kindness project just wrapped up after 81 weeks!
