According to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, this is World Kindness Week! How are you celebrating kindness today? Kindness can be a part of anything or everything you do; it’s not something you must go out of your way to achieve. And the more you practice kindness, the more relaxed and open you become. The winner of the RAK’s ‘Extreme Kindness Challenge’ is a woman named Madison Steiner, who runs a small non-profit called ‘Peach’s Neet Feet‘. Basically what they do is to purchase kid’s size canvas tennis shoes and hand paint them, then donate the shoes to children who have cancer or other medical challenges. Each pair of shoes is designed for one specific child, and celebrates things that are important to that child. You can see more by clicking on the link below.

Need something really simple? Smile at a stranger. Do it again. And again. Now tell someone you love that you love them. Share a hug. Allow yourself to open, expand and breathe. Practice kindness every day!
