2020 was an ugly year so to that I say good riddance. Now that we’re starting a new year, I propose we make 2021 the Year of Kindness. To get you started, here are 15 quotes that I hope will inspire you to spread kindness where ever you go.
Plus, you’re in for a visual treat, I’ve included pictures from an amazing photographer with each quote. My sister-in-law, Cherie Mason, has an incredible talent for creative and inspirational pictures. I’m happy to share her pictures here but I’d also recommend you go over to herInstagram pageand see the rest of her beautiful work.
THE POWER OF A SMILE The power of a gun can kill and the power of fire can burn The power of wind can chill and the power of a mind can learn The power of anger can rage inside until it tears you apart But the power of a smile, especially yours, can heal a frozen heart – Tupac Shakur
These days, with everyone wearing a mask, I’m really missing the smiles.
“We human beings have survived for a thousand generations, helping one another and inspiring each other. We know how to do this. Instead of getting caught in collective fear and anxiety, we can remember to take a breath, center ourselves, and take practical precautions and protections, but calmly and in the spirit of love. Each of us can contribute to the well-being of ourselves, our communities and our world.” – Jack Kornfield
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, If a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, If the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive. – Eleonora Duse
