The Kindness Project

Thoughtfulness. Graciousness. Patience.

Kindness has more than a dozen meanings and a dozen more ways to show it. A simple smile can brighten up a person's day. Allowing the person behind you to cut in front of the line before paying is a small token of kindness. Little things make big differences.

Don't forget to share your kindness today. Acts of kindness are contagious and very heartfelt.


How do you practice kindness?

Be sure to follow--and join!--The Kindness Project is around the web today. Stop by Elana Johnson's blog to learn a little more.

Right? Kindness doesn't take effort. Being mean? That's what's hard and consumes energy.
