Jun 10, 2019, 1 comments, 5 smiles Was deeply touched by this share from someone new to KindSpring, who has requested a Smile Deck, and wanted to share it with all of you. Comment: I really am in need of some kindness and more so being willing and able to share it. I stumbled on this site in a bad state of mind and I'm feeling positive again just reviewing the site and seeing positivity. I've lost some faith in people and am hoping to gain it back through this process. And maybe find and inspire some friends as well. So it was this site that has inspired me. To even want to use the deck. Thank you either way for bringing a smile and happy tear to my face. She also shared this on how a small random act of kindness made a difference to her: "I was inspired to order these cards by a woman who bought my ... Read Full Story
Jun 04, 2019, 2 comments, 5 smiles â¤ï¸ What a gift the Jai Jagat show was Sunday. The love was palpable the moment you entered the lobby & were warmly greeted by all with smiles & offers of hugs ðŸ¤—. I met a few ServiceSpace folks volunteering there who are familiar with KindSpring & when I introduced myself as Mish from KindSpring, told me they knew me from my posts. Made me smile to connect with new “cousins in kindness”. â¤ï¸ Shared some peace doves, kindness cards & more than one hug there, and was gifted with time (& gifts) shared with KS sister LeoLady ðŸ¤—. Left a Kindness goody bag with one of the Volunteers who promised to give it to Nimo for me ðŸ‘ âï¸ The show is unique & totally inspiring and amazing. The kids are brilliant! As good as, or even better, than many of the Broadway shows I’ve been to. Vastly talented, full of spirit ... Read Full Story

Sep 09, 2018, 3 comments, 10 smiles From a post this morning in KS community, on why KindSpring is a true gift. When I was new in Kindspring, I thought others would not care about what I considered tiny acts of kindness. Yet, I posted them anyway. To my surprise, Kindspring friends did acknowledge them and me. Doing them, posting about them. It changed how I viewed them. Doing good to others had become part of my identity since age 14, yet I had not been taught to honor and value that part of myself. It was subjected to the 'never enough!' judgement inside of me. Kindspring has changed that and continues to change that, day after day. Post after post. Comment after comment. Embracing that part of me has changed my inside attitude toward giving, taking and being a part of different space. Small act of kindness for today? Writing a post at Kindspring, honoring how it has changed me deep within. :) Thank you, ServiceSpace. All of us in the thriving KindSpring community are profoundly grateful.

Jun 07, 2018, 1 comments, 4 smiles Someone posted this quote over at the KindSpring feed and I want to share it here with you. âœ¨"The problem is not only what you can do. But to do is just one of the things you can do. To Be is another way of doing. If you can be relaxed, if you can be peaceful, if you can be compassionate â€“ that is a lot of action already. If you have peace, tranquillity, compassion then your presence is also very helpful. So to be is very important and to do something that comes from that kind of being, to be peace first and to do peace later. If you have friends who know how to be, to be relaxed to be peaceful, to be fresh, to be healthy then together you can create a powerful collective energy of peace, joy, happiness that can bless many peopleâ€¦ and that collective energy of peace contributes to the wellbeing of people."âœ¨ ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
