SLICE OF LIFE – KINDNESS CHALLENGE WEEK #2

sols_green
Every Tuesday Two Writing Teachers provide an opportunity to share your writing.

Yesterday was the start of the second week of my Kindness Challenge.  The challenge this week is to notice the moments of kindness that arise in my day to day experience.

I am really looking forward to this week. I hope to become more mindful of my daily experience by seeking out the evidence of kindness in my daily experience.

Yesterday, I received an Email notifying me that I had received a new follower to my blog.  I went to the web address, http://www.fattymccupcakes.com, to check out their web.

The first post I read was from the teacher named Katie who writes the blog.  It was a post about her desire to teach in the U.K. but she had no idea at all how to go about fulfilling this dream.

I have to admit that I thought the comments were going to run the gamut of:  good luck, live your dream, never give up, etc.  And several of them contained exactly that sentiment but tucked in between those comments were people from the U.K. reaching out to her with offers of assistance – REAL ASSISTANCE!

When I caught up with her latest post, it appears she is well on her way to achieving this goal.

This was a completely unexpected opportunity to witness kindness,  I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings.

Wishing you many moments of kindness,

bernadette

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. What a perfect post. I am so grateful for the comments I get each day to my letters to Tuvia especially on Tuesdays, when I can give back and read other slices… So good to get and return…

  2. That would be fantastic if help from fellow bloggers helped Katie realise her dreams. Like you, I would have expected the normal kind and well-meant phrases of good luck but absolutely brilliant that practical support is offered. I’m off to I have look at her blog now.

  3. Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for posting about this! I feel incredibly blessed to have connected to such amazing people on WordPress and, of course, in the U.K. 🙂 The people I have gotten to know are some of the most genuine, most kind people I have ever met. I think it has a lot to do with so many of them being from good ol’ England. Thanks again!!

  4. Bernadette, it is truly wonderful that you are seeking out the evidence of kindness in your daily experience. Random acts of kindness are genuine and well appreciated. I am most grateful that you out of the clear blue you decided to feature me in your post. To me that was a beautiful act of kindness. Thank you.
