Thanks to T. Wayne of A Joyful Process for nominating me for the three day quote challenge. The rules are to select up to three quotes each day for three consecutive days, and nominate three different bloggers in each of these posts to do the same challenge. I will do my best!
Today it is officially ONE MONTH until my big 4-0 Birthday. I will use this first challenge day to remind everyone about what I want for my birthday and will share 3 quotes about KINDNESS.
People wonder why I give so many compliments out to strangers.
I’m not being fake and I’m not looking for people to like me.
But if I pass someone and I like something, I say it.
“Love those shoes!” or “Great hair!” or “Wow your eyes are beautiful!”
…. Why? Because life is hard and this word can be a shitty place
… and people are mean. You never know how much those few words
mean to someone, you never know what hell they may be going through;
and when you put positivity out there into the universe
YOU yourself become a happier person.
It’s hard to be nice and be miserable yourself.
It’ll reflect from the outside in . . .
I’m telling you random compliment giving will change your life;
and maybe someone else’s too.
– Jordan Sarah Weatherhead
Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check.
But that is not what I have found.
I have found that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folks
that keep the darkness at bay.
Small acts of kindness and love.
– Gandalf, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”
And finally . . . what is better than a quote about kindness PAIRED with a kitten?
I nominate these 3 bloggers for the 3 Day Quote Challenge
Make it a great day!
