    Since I have a 67 mile round trip to work every day, I practice kindness on the road each day; letting someone out that is trapped by long lines of traffic, flashing my lights at big rigs to let them know they have cleared my car and can come on over, things like that. Over all, I try to keep in mind the “do unto others as you’d have them do unto you” as I go about my day at home or away from it.

      Wow that’s a a bit of a trek Barabara. I wished more drivers were kind. I try to do the same. Letting people over when they signal etc. I’ve been crazy busy this month but I will definitely stop by and visit. Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

    Love your post! I have been embracing thekindnessrocksproject.com. It’s a small gesture that will either randomly or directly improve someone’s day, or if nothing else, help them take pause and ground themselves in that moment. We started a local chapter in our community because in all these trying times due to things outside of our control, the one thing we can control is being kind. We loved that the painting parties had loads of secondary benefits as it’s a stress-relief, creative outlet, community builder, and more.
