Don't Put Off Kindness

Normalize kind acts- don’t wait for tragedy.
When I heard that a neighbor wasn’t feeling good, the girls got tasked with making hand rolled noodles while I harvested veggies from the garden and heated up bone broth to make soup to walk down the road with.
So often it is when we hear of tragedy that kindness is inspired. And that isn’t said with judgment, we’re all busy and struggle to find time to do the things required of us.
It’s easy to put off kindness when it doesn’t feel urgent or necessary.
Which is why it has to become an intentional part of your life- putting kindness into action even when it doesn’t feel needed.
I spend my days looking for opportunities to prioritize kindness and am determined to raise my girls to have the same mindset.
Now more than ever we need to do our part to make kindness the rule, not the exception. To make our neighbors, our community and strangers feel like they are seen, valued and not alone.
As we walked over to drop off the soup, Finn said, “Mom, this feels like something they did in the old times”.
Let’s make sure future generations see acts of kindness not as “old timey” but as a part of everyday life!
