Nov 09, 2018, 3 comments, 6 smiles Sometimes the onslaught of bad news can weigh heavy on our hearts, but as we all know here, there is also plenty of good to remember in the midst of unease and heartbreak. Below is a forward from Good Housekeeping magazine, with selfless deeds remind us of all of the ways we can help. After Hurricane Florence caused devastating flooding in North Carolina this fall, kindhearted citizens like Amber Hersel jumped into action. The volunteer from the Civilian Crisis Response Team helped rescue 7-year-old Keiyana Cromartie and her family from their flooded home on September 14, 2018 in James City. Anthony Ledesma, Victor Erwin, and Aaron Flowers (from left) volunteered their talents at the sixth annual Kutz4Kids event this August in San Jose, California. Fifteen barbers gave out hundreds of free haircuts for students returning to school. Charles "Chucky" Williams lost his father to colon cancer when he was just 8-years-old. Since then, ...

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. ✨"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 – 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 people… and that collective energy of peace contributes to the wellbeing of people."✨ ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
Apr 14, 2018, 1 comments, 9 smiles Deep gratitude for today's wisdom-filled Awakin Call with Brenda Salgado. Inspired me to increase my mindfulness about whether thoughts I am holding, or words/acts I am about to share, will be adding positively to the energy I am about to bring into the world! The voices of the three amazing women on the call imparted such a strong calmness vibe. Feeling blessed by this Call. 🙏
