On October 23rd I opened my new copy of The Kindness Boomerang. It felt so good to have a copy of my own again. You see I tend to gift a lot of them, and I was without one for myself for weeks.
The Kindness Boomerang is a book by Life Vest Inside founder Orly Wahba who inspires us to change the world with kindness. It’s all about everyday people doing everyday things a little more consciously.
I’ve learned through these daily kindness exercises it’s true, the little things really are the big things.
So I opened the book and the act for that day was
Eat and shop locally today.
It just so happened that I was about to buy some sticky sweet honey from our local apiarist, commonly known as a beekeeper, who is just down the road at Zee-Bee Honey. I had to smile as I made the arrangements with the owner (and my friend) Michelle.
The Steve Maraboli quote accompanying the act fit perfectly,
Every single time you help somebody stand up you are helping humanity rise.
It was another one of those “rise like air” feeling occasions. Everyday people doing everyday things a little more consciously everyday. I like it when things come together with that peaceful sweet serendipity. Just another reminder that really, “it’s all good”. It’s all in how you look at it.
