I launched Kind Living in 2011 to centralize the kindness content I've been creating since the 1990's, making it more easily available. Throughout, I've been fortunate to be connected to many wonderful people, demonstrating the significant overlap between giving and receiving.

On that note, as we come to the end of 2020, I invite to show your support of Kind Living through a financial gift. Such support offsets our expenses and provides us a tremendous amount of positive encouragement. Consider this an invitation to give based on the value you receive from what Kind Living offers. 

You can make a one-time contribution via PayPal or set up a recurring monthly contribution at Patreon

Perhaps of interest, part of every financial donation is passed along to other organizations and crowdfunding projects that inspire us. We see this as part of an important flow of receiving and giving energy. 

Thank you for your support!

Find the Positive

To wrap up a crazy 2020 that has provided no shortage of challenges, I invite you to review an event that caused you to suffer. As your comfort level allows, review the event in detail, perhaps even taking time to write or talk to a trusted friend about it. 

Next, take stock of what has come since that event, specifically because of it. Be gentle with yourself as you do this, and, if necessary, be a little bit creative. If it helps, pretend the situation didn't happen to you, but to a character in a movie. 

Finally, as a concluding action to 2020, maybe even on New Year's Eve, allow yourself to express gratitude for the event because of what has entered your life due to it. 

  •    Perhaps you met someone you otherwise would not have met.  
  •    Perhaps you learned how to respond better to a person or situation you found difficult.

Please do not choose anything that causes you undue pain.

With connection & warmth,


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