Today I'm trying what I hope will be a new weekly tradition: Feel Good Fridays. Every Friday, I will find an inspiring story, poem, or video, and share it with you. The only criteria? When you are done reading the blog or watching the video, you should feel warm-fuzzy happiness. If I'm lucky, you may even be inspired by them. So without further ado, here is your first Feel Good Friday, a beautiful video by the non-profit organization Life Vest Inside.
From the Life Vest Inside website: Charity work and community service are invaluable tools for bettering our world, but kindness is more than good deeds or volunteerism alone. Kindness is empathy, compassion, and human connection; it's a smile, a touch, or a comforting word. Even the smallest gesture can brighten a dark day or ease a heavy burden. LVI works to cultivate the awareness that individuals can effect real and positive change in the people around them, simply by 'living kindness:' by embodying empathy and compassion in our day-to-day lives. LVI seeks to spread kindness and goodwill through the sharing of Acts of Kindness Cards, connecting our users to various inspirational media through film and the Internet. And further through the implementation of our Social Emotional Learning Program.
What do you think? Shall I keep doing Feel Good Fridays? Do you have a story or video you'd like me to share next week? Leave a comment or send me an e-mail! I look forward to hearing from you.
