There’s something about confetti that makes us all happy, giddy even. The laughter is infectious and we spread it around without even thinking about it. That’s how we should practice kindness.
Today’s post features a kindness postcard crafted by a “newish” penfriend, Connie F. of South Carolina.
“Throw kindness around like confetti.”
I giggled with glee when I retrieved this postcard from my post office box. The confetti is so cheering! Notice the purple and pink flying hearts? Connie sees hearts everywhere (there’s proof in her Instagram feed). And though she says the inspiration for the winged hearts was the line from Jewel’s “Hands” (see Monday’s post), the hearts carry another message: When we freely exercise kindness, we are giving love wings and tossing it “like confetti” throughout the world.
Isn’t that what kindness is all about?
Be sure to throw some kindness around this weekend. Your small part has exponential potential to heal the world.
