a little kindness



My mom always told me “if you wanna be interesting, be interested.”  I try to remember this with each person I encounter; I try to remember to show genuine interest in their lives. When we take a closer look at the folks around us, there is so much to learn.  Plus, a little kindness can go a long way.

words :: gratitude


It starts with gratitude.

You find the things to be thankful for (they are there, I swear) and you focus your mind and heart on those things.  The rest will follow suit.

Today, I am grateful for a good cup of coffee, my shrinking to-do list, and this transitional summer-to-fall season.

What about you?
