I joined the Journey Forward
series for the first time last week.
It is a perfect pairing with the vibe of Smile at a Stranger.
The goal of participating in Journey Forward is personal enrichment, self awareness, and moving toward your potential. It is based on a central word, or theme, on which you focus your energy and attention, and blog about it weekly.
My “word” was an easy choice for me because it is an attitude I wish to impart on life in general: Kindness.
This week’s Journey Forward post is about images, or graphics (i.e.- videos) that embody your chosen word; to share some of your pins from Pinterest that exemplify the significance of your word.
This is what kindness looks (and sounds) like to me:
1- Sarah Kay– Spoken word artist. “Hands” Listen- It’s just beautiful.
2- Kindness is an animal instinct. And an animal NEED.
3- Kindness is priceless, ya know.
4- Video- Amy Krause Rosenthal’s “Thought Bubble”- asks “How Do YOU Want to be Remembered” “What Have You Filled the World With?”
5- Because making others feel good makes ME feel good.
6- Simplicity. Kindness is not complicated.
7- Anis Logjani– Spoken word artist. “Shake the Dust” Another amazing person trying to lift people up with his wonderful gift with words.
8- This is what I see everyday at home with my two boys, and besides a mother’s love for her children, sibling love is one of the purest forms of love (and kindness) there is.
9- Do RIGHT. Because it’s wayyyy cooler than doing wrong.
10- Parents. And especially my mom. From whom I learned what kindness was.
11- What Teachers Make- Taylor Mali. Powerful stuff, y’all.
Linking up with a fellow NoVA girl, Chelsea, for Journey Forward!
Can’t wait until next week!
