This week’s Kindness Intention: when I see something, to say something. They tell you in this in the airport and other places but they are referring to suspicious activity. I’m talking about something nice. When I see something positive, to say something instead of just thinking it to myself.
And here are 12 times that American kindness made all the difference.
And lastly, O Say Can You See, sung joyfully.
What is a Kindness Intention?
It is a way of keeping kindness more intentional in my own life by setting a weekly goal of kindness. And hopefully inspiring you to do something kind in your own world!
Happy Weekend, Joy Ambassadors!
